    My advice would be to not go with the RSTe go with RST / IRST 12.7 Drivers instead on a clean install.
    If you have flashed Virtualfreds Latest Bios 12s mod you will have the option in the bios to use either RSTe or IRST.
    IRST WILL Allow Trim to be activated / used if you use Raid 0 Configurations with SSDs.
