Some questions for a new build. Hardware is:
P8Z77-V asus, core I5 3570K, 8gb vengence ram,
128GB samsung 840 SSD, 1TB WD black and 660Ti gpu.
windows 7 pro 64bit. question:

Do I need intel RST for trim to work? Of what
benefit does RST give for a non-raid system?
From the intel forum, I have read that there are
problems with version 11.6. I think I will skip
installing as it seems to benefit raid only.

Intel Management Engine Interface V8 What does it do?
is it needed, any special requirements installing it on new system?

Can applications/games be installed to the 1TB hard drive
rather than the SSD? any special method?
