    Thanks guys. At this stage I am happy to leave the BIOS as is, the SSD is behaving ok. If it does become an issue I will revisit this and consider a custom BIOS. However in all likelihood by the time the SSD becomes and issue I will be well and truly ready for a computer upgrade.

    Yeah, that's RAID 0 TRIM, which is not what I'm thinking about, and does not affect the OP. I'm just wondering if there is any reason the Matrix driver would mess up normal TRIM to a single SSD.

    No it wont, TRIM is a function of Windows. The only time the driver affects TRIM is when You are running an actual array

    Yes I know, but I thought I saw a statement by Intel somewhere that said the Matrix driver would interfere with TRIM and non-RAID drives. I should have saved it for myself. Again, I really don't know and was wondering about this, but you're probably right.

    I also saw somewhere that RAID 0 TRIM needed the SSD to support UDMA 6 or better, ever hear of that one?
