oops, seems the satadriver for older boards haven't been updated yet at least.

According to my knowledge there are at least 3 different types of the Intel's EFI "SataDriver" module. What your BIOS obviously needs is an FFS type "SataDriver" file (the original file has the suffix .ffs).
If you give me access to an original SataDriver.ffs file v11.6.0.1702, I would be able to modify it regarding TRIM in RAID0 support for P67 and Z68 SATA Controllers.

And what about TRIM? Does it work too?

I am pleased to report
TRIM works in RAID 0 on my MAXIMUS IV GENE-Z (z68) using two Samsung 840 Pro 256 GB
This I confirmed using HxD as well as the tool Fernando of Anandtech uploaded by CyberShadow

To the creator of this thread and uploader of this bios. THANK YOU. You are doing a great service which Intel SHOULD HAVE DONE but failed to from either lazy/cheapness, or an attempt to exploit the consumer.

...why did you quote me when he asked you if your trim was working? Just curious...

I have done some reading in forums and checked websites with posted information like anandtech.com and very specifically their post on TRIM support for 7-series mobos. The articles does not make a mention of a new OROM but it does use an Intel mobo and I checked the intel website for that mobo and the release notes for one of the BIOS upgrades and Intel did add an OROM update to 11.2 during that time frame (I do not remember the BIOS version but it did say very clearly on the notes that an OROM upgrade came with the BIOS for that Intel board).

Now I am getting my Gene V tomorrow. I know that the OROM version on that board is 11.0. I am getting a pair of SSDs that I am doing to run in RAID0 and I would like to have TRIM support but I am a little hesitant on using a moded Bios just to update the OROM. Has anyone done tests to check if TRIM is available using that version of the OROM with a newer RST driver? as far as I seen on the release notes from RST 11.2 forward it does not state that the version of the OROM released in pair with that driver is required for the features of that driver to function (TRIM support for RAID arrays). Also the TRIM command was held back from the dirver, not the OROM itself (or as far as I understand by what I have read so far). Unlike the release notes for the Intel RST driver 11.0 that do state '4. This release supports the co-existence of the Intel® Smart Response Technology caching solution and the Intel® Rapid Start Technology solution on a single SSD. Note: An RST 11.0 OROM is required to support this configuration'.

I am really on the wall with that Intel states and what some users are saying in the forums. That is the reason why I ask if someone has made any tests with the 11.0 OROM and a newer RST driver 11.2 or better to test from TRIM support in RAID arrays. I am not trying to troll or anything, I just have not been able to do the testing myself since I have waited until recently to get my hands on SSDs since the prices are really decent now and I was originally going to get 1 anyways since I read the release notes on the the RST 11.0 driver close to year from today.

Any insight will be greatly appreciated.
