true dint think of this.

"Don't forget you should use SATA 3 for the best speed since the SSD supports it" I have never seen anything else written elsewhere that goes against that statement. So I have paid 40 bucks for nothing, then? TRIM support, how will I know of I have lost it, when turning it on in Windows will it give an error?

Well, if I were you, I would carry on, finish the installation anyway. Run a benchmark, AS SSD is best and easiest to use imo. Then compare with the other people's scores who got the same SSD here:

If your results are significantly lower, then just plug to Intel Controller. Don't forget to install latest drivers for it - Intel® Rapid Storage Technology

Unfortunately there is no easy way to know if TRIM is supported by your controller. Only by means of tedious testing. You might want to read this review by Lsdmeasap:

He gives very good insight into what you can expect from your C300.

It only says if TRIM is enabled in your Windows. It doesn't mean that the controller passes the commands from your OS to the drive.

Installed Windows. It's reporting driver not found for the controller and there is no way of installing it because Windows refuses to accept the driver is inside the driver folder. I'm a bit lost as to what to do now. Will run benchmark.

Try the CD that came with the controller or look for driver on it's website.

168 MB/s read, 78.4MB/s write for a total score of 303. Not very happy - will using the SATA2 cable improve this, and will I require a reinstall of Windows?
