Here's the proof. Trusted and Intel's partner. ---> http://vr-zone.com/articles/intel-rapid-storage-technology-roadmap-windows-8-ssd-raid-trim-and-many-more/14638.html
And also as I had said earlier on this thread. 11.6.1.xxxx will be the RAID Option ROM that will support TRIM on RAID on older chipsets. Info / Source : Secret tongue.gif

I also tested my Z68 mobo with Intel RAID OROM 11.6.0.1702
trim does not work.
you refer to an article that is almost a year old!
i don't believe in fairytales..
trim will never work on "older than Z77 chipsets"
Intel really sucks, forcing their loyal customers to upgrade.

maybe you can try WIN8. it maybe can work. for me, I kicked my raid0 away long time ago since win7 can not support trim on raid0. Right now, 1 ssd for win7 U and 1 for win8 pro. Why many people like Raid0 or 1? only for ASS test result? After ASS and other ssd speed testing, I think there are not too much differences between single ssd with Raid0.

Seems that I can't win for losing. When I flash the bios containing OROM v11.6.0.1624, the system hangs at the Windows logo. To remedy this, I used F8/ Last known good configuration to get back to my desktop. I didn't stress it that much because OROM v11.6.0.1702 is what I was truly waiting on. When Garik updated the bioses, I gave it another shot. The same thing happened again. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. Can someone help me out? I'll summarize my steps below.

Initially, I was running the stock OROM that came along with bios 3304 on an ASUS P8Z68 DELUXE/GEN3 in combination with IRST v11.0.0.1032. Before flashing either of the modded bios files, I installed IRST v11.6.0.1030. Rebooted, proceeded to flash, and everything went fine. The correct OROM is listed upon entering the Intel storage manager (CTRL-I), and my RAID array is intact with a status of normal. Upon exiting, the Windows logo starts its animation, the hard drive light illuminates as if files are loading, and the system hangs. The hard drive light goes out and flashes occasionally. Once I execute Last known good configuration to get back to the desktop, device manager shows driver version 10.6.0.1022 for the Intel(R) Desktop/Workstation/Server Express Chipset SATA RAID Controller. I know that this is due to using Last known good configuration. However, IRST v11.6.0.1030 is still installed, and gives an error upon trying to start it. Rebooting the system hangs it again. When I uninstall IRST v11.6.0.1030 and reboot, everything starts just fine.

Both IRST v11.5.4.1001 and IRST v11.2.0.1006 causes the system to hang as well.

Things I've tried prior to using Last known good configuration are:

Simply rebooting
Unplugging all drives except the OS's RAID array drives
Startup repair (which couldn't fix the issue, but stated it was a bad driver)

The OS's RAID array consists of two Sata II SSD's on Intel's 3Gb/s sata ports with 3Gb/s cables. My empty Sata III SSD's are on Intel's 6Gb/s sata ports with 6Gb/s cables, the HDD's are attached to the last two of Intel's 3Gb/s sata ports with standard sata cables, and the two optical drives are connected to Marvell's 6Gb/s ports with standard sata cables.

Edit: Worked fine with a fresh install of windows on my empty SSD's, just not with my current install. Has to be a driver conflict.

garikfox,

Do you work on older BIOS versions or just the latest ones for a range of motherboards? The reason I ask is because I am stuck to using BIOS 1304 on my Sabertooth Z77 since I cannot boot from my optical drive on both 1403 and 1504. Bizarre issue that I'm sure will eventually be resolved, but for now, 1304 I stay!

Thanks for your effort!

EDIT: Nevermind! I ended up modding it myself after some digging around. Works great! I can provide the modded 1304 BIOS if anyone wants it.

Yesterday I ran a few performance tests and I found OROM 11.6.0.1702 performs significantly better then 11.5.x.xxxx. With 11.5 I measured 120,000 IOPS for 4k-64thrd reads on my two samsung 830, with 11.6 it is 135,000. That's a nice performance boost, it's really worth to upgrade. smile.gif

Intel knows that those who use RAIDs and want TRIM support, aren't average users, belong in "enthusiast" or related category and... why not make them upgrade?...

It's simple and we all know how this part of technology works....
