Well it seems like the ACHI drives would benefit a lot more than the IDE mode drives, I am sure there is a way to get it working on IDE drives...there is always a way.

If you're referring to TRIM, then again: I've been told by a few different people here on OCN that TRIM works just the same in IDE mode as it does in AHCI mode. I went through a time here on OCN where I was telling people that the only way for TRIM to work is to use AHCI mode. But now I know that the only real difference between IDE mode and AHCI mode that people would really care about is Native Command Queuing: NCQ is not supported by IDE mode.

I was misguided in my response, it did not say what I was thinking hahaha

I meant to say: The performance of an ACHI drive would be way better than IDE, so TRIM support on IDE wouldn't help it as much as the ACHI drive...in other words: It would still be fairly slow even with TRIM enabled, just cleaner.

Well of course. A solid state drive on an AHCI-mode enabled SATA port will have optimal (and superior) performance as compared to being on an IDE-mode enabled SATA port. In most cases, the full performance of the SSD cannot be realized in IDE mode. I actually found this out first-hand when I had upgraded from the EVGA 680i SLI to the EP45-UD3P: the EVGA 680i SLI doesn't have the AHCI (the Advanced Host Controller Interface), and so what I discovered is that I got very superior benchmarks with the EP45-UD3P with AHCI mode enabled. Check this out:

i just did this myself the other day

Only hiccup was that I had to swap sata cables because the hdd erase wasn't picking up both ssds at the same time. So it took me a couple try's to be sure i got both ssd's erased.
But it seems a lil faster then just a normal reformat witch i like to do all the time lol.

also trim no works through raid mode but not on ssd's in a raid setup

Aie! That's quite a difference! I am getting (albeit a little late in the game) a 790FX-GD70 (supports x16, x16 x-fire). When it was new it was pretty good and it still is. I am sure it also supports ACHI mode...if my current crappy Gigabyte one does now this one should handle it no problem.

Well that should be no problem for me, I only have the one drive.
I don't need a RAID or anything to give me crazy speeds. I am no benchmarking nut, I just like a high performance computer with upgrade potential ^_^
