What version of trimcheck are you using ? Latest version is 0.4

Isn't checking TRIM in AHCI using CMD enough?

I just ran trimcheck, I can confirm that TRIM is indeed working with 12.6.0.1033 using AHCI mode and WIn8 wink.gif

0.4 here. it always reports my Mushkin Chronos Deluxe RAID0 as TRIM not working. forgot if I ever checked that with stock OROM and 11.5 IRST (I think I did). however hex method on partition yields some normal results.... not sure what to think about it ... running 12.6 OROM+IRRST now under win8 x64

Notice the intel rep says for intel drives, then at the bottom the guy says his is working.

I think Coldblackice is talking about the TRIM not working with RAID in the 12.5.x drivers, in which I already knew that.

Yep, that's the one! There was an additional post about it somewhere, as well, that detailed more information. I think it might have been around the station-drivers.com forums.

I'm paraphrasing -- but I believe the issue stemmed from having more than one CD/DVD drive connected via SATA through Intel's chipset. If/When this happens, I believe TRIM functionality is lost and/or some drive features no longer work (in AHCI mode, which is what I use).

I'll try to dig up the more detailed post (I think it was station-drivers where I saw it). As such, I've hesitated updating to this driver (1033). But if others aren't having issues in AHCI mode, then hallelujah! smile.gif


EDIT:

Another thread with more info on the matter:

http://communities.intel.com/thread/41605

"I have encountered the same issue on two different PCs after upgrading to the RST 12.6 driver. The problem goes away after the storage driver is rolled back to RST 12.5.

It appears the 12.6 driver has changed the way storage devices are reported to the OS. I'm not sure if this was intentional or a bug, but I agree the Intel SSD Toolbox has fallen behind and a new revision is needed."

And Intel response...

"Scan80269, you are correct in regards of your first statement; the drive is probably detected as SCSI (Hardware ID) in device manager, this also happens when the SATA controller is set to RAID or is in fact a native RAID controller. However, this is not an issue with the Intel® SSD Toolbox specifically.

Since the way the drive is detected changed in device manager, the SATA controller is not able to translate the TRIM command to the drive. In this case we recommend rolling back Intel® RST and report the issue to the Intel® Chipset Support Communities."

Has anyone modded a Gigabyte Z68X UD4-B3 bios? I'd really like to try. Also, I can't access the FTP server... it just times out for me.

Thank you!

might downgrade to stock BIOS/OROM and re-install driver to 11.5 and re-test tonight LOL ... still haven't had time for a fresh install of system on raid array (restored from backup)...

any links to source on TRIM issues with 12.6+ IRST/OROM?


I noticed that with RAID 0, when running Trimcheck.exe, you have to disable Write Back Cache in IRST and enable write cache buffer flushing temporarily. Otherwise there will be no physical data written to the disk and Trimcheck sees no changes. With the above settings Trimchceck finds trim enabled.

Thank you GarikFox!

Any chance you could mod the F10 version and not the U1E bios? I've been hearing about instability on the U1E.

I'll try it out as soon as I get my second ssd. I don't know why, but the ftp doesn't work on chrome, but works on firefox browser.


Thanks again

Thanks for a tip, but I tried that in my RAID0 on OROM 12.5 and then 12.6 and various IRST drivers and nada, TRIMcheck always reported either "NOT working" or "inconclusive".rolleyes.gif it was kinda disappointing for me. the only instance I could see TRIM somewhat working was when running Hex editor check on partition directly, and even that only after restart and deleted sector was always looking like "00 FF 00 FF 00 FF" instead of "FF FF FF FF FF FF".

now however, I have flashed back to OROM 11.0 (stock from 1707 BIOS on MVE asus) and running latest official 11.5 IRST driver with write-back cache enabled ... guess what, the trimcheck for the first time in my history of this system (I'm fairly new to ssd raid0, never used it with OROM 11.0 before) reported the trim to be WORKING biggrin.gifthumb.gif ... not at once, but it did after restart of system, wasn't the case before when I could have waited a week from initiating Optimize/trim, restarting several times and it never said that TRIM was actually working.



I guess I will stick to stock 11.0 OROM with 11.5 IRST for now ...
