Intel C222 Raid Trim Support?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I have a few quick questions I'm not quiet certain of.

I bought a Supermicro mobo with a C222 chipset and was wondering does it support Raid Trim?. I know it was implemented on Z6-Z7 boards and up but not sure of actual server chipset boards. I would assume compatibility with features like that would be even more supported but who knows.


Also I plan on running Freenas with the onboard LSI controller for the NFS array and boot from a flash drive. Now would I be able to dual boot into a Windows drive running on one of the SATA ports and nothing would affect anything else correct?

The C222 chipset specs are here, but no clear indication on Raid Trim support

and the board for those who are curious

Any help would be appreciated

Anyone? I of course mean the two Sata ports on the board from the Intel controller not the LSI ones..

There's a small test program named "TrimCheck" that you could use to check in Windows. On Linux, you won't use that kind of RAID, so no problem there. FreeNAS probably works similarly and you don't want that kind of RAID there as well. You'll use what's built into the ZFS filesystem or some other feature built into its kernel?

Yeah I heard about that before. I was trying to avoid that if possible, the drives I plan on using are in another system in an array so I would have to break the array, install an OS on another drive and then test it
