I downloaded the modified SataDriver (v12.5) from your thread at Win-Lite, but I get the "Invalid FFS file" error when I try to replace the original SataDriver. Do you know how I can do it?

Upon double-checking, IRST driver v12.5 also suffers from this "bug"

Setting the below on IRST v12.5 GUI makes TRIM works but it has disadvantages like, lower 4k writes on benchmarks...

Write-cache buffer flashing: Enabled
Cache mode: Off

Edit:
Ooops! Sorry, I verify it with HxD Method (Easy TRIM Test) and it's proven that IRST driver v12.5 TRIM don't work at all. Sorry for misinformation. It seems like trimcheck-0.4 is not a reliable TRIM testing application?

@ ney2x
I tried exactly that yesterday and nada. not even after several restarts and manually triggered optimization/trim. I think something is screwed up in this OS installation (initially it was AHCI) that prevents TRIM from functioning on RAID0 ...

what do you have in background under that IRST manager in previous screen shot? looks awesome biggrin.gif

@feniks

Most probably, it was AHCI change mode...

Is this the guide you did when you change from AHCI to RAID? ---> http://www.overclock.net/t/1227636/how-to-change-sata-modes-after-windows-7-installation

well, that guide doesn't cover AHCI to RAID conversion under windows 8 wink.gif but essentially it's same, just the only difference is StartOverride key that needs to get toggled under iastorv and iastora. also msahci key has been renamed to storahci in win8.

I also lean to conclusion that this situation is a result of initial EFi AHCI installation, just like something is missing in OS, I know the difference is visible in write speeds, they are higher on clean install (tested before) by around 10-20%. Just received a confirmation from Mushkin tech that in deed a lack of TRIM support would negatively impact the SSD r0 write speeds. it must be it.

Gigabyte Z68, and the EFI Raid SataDriver is inside the bios, I didn't add it. It's V11.6.0.1702.
I want to change it with v12.5.0.1815, but the one you modded for Z68 trim.
But I can't do it using Aptio, because of a"Invalid FFS file" error.
When I am home next week, I will try to update the SataDriver module of your linked BIOS.

I set up my 2 Samsung 128gb Pro's in Raid 0, Ran the Windows Experience Index , Ran the Windows Optimizer , Trigger Trim with AnvilBenchmark_RC6 & on the first try good news.





Thanks Again Fernando

This is very nice but I'm wondering if it eats a lot of resources? I mean your profile page has lots of monitoring tools so CPU and RAM polling is always active.
