Moving Storage Controllers

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Okay, I'm getting a Corsair Force3 60GB SATA6G SSD on Friday - and going to hook it up to my P55 board (SATA2) which is running in RAID-mode. I want to install OS on it and have fun.

However next week or the week after I'm picking up an Asus U3S6 card (which runs AHCI) so I can run it at SATA6G - will I need to format and reinstall the OS? Also will the RAID-configured P55 storage controller support the usual TRIM and SSD functions?

Modern Intel SATA controllers do support TRIM when in RAID mode.

I don't know anything about that addin card.

I highly suspect it'll require a reinstall, as surely it uses different drivers than the Intel controller?

I've heard it can run the Microsoft AHCI driver - but it's still a different driver to the RAID one right?

So there is no way to say install the driver, shut down, move controllers and it'll work :/
