I'm not sure if the Marvell 9128 Sata3 controller works with TRIM.

EDIT: From what I've seen, there used to be issues but I believe if you use MS's AHCI drivers, trim works.

ok guys, will I have any issues running the M4 on my Marvell SATA3 ports and using my WD Blacks in Raid 0 using Intel controller. Will TRIM work on my board?

TRIM won't work on Marvell controller. DON'T use Marvell on your board at all. Disable it in BIOS and forget about it forever. Use your native Intel ports, set to RAID in BIOS and make an array of your HDDs if you need to. Single drives in RAID mode operate in AHCI automatically, so there is no problem here.

Good luck!

Also install Intel® Rapid Storage Technology which is a driver for Intel controller.
