My System Specs

Default

So TRIM does work in IDE mode even though you specifically say you need AHCI mode?

Since garbage collection is *almost always* at the firmware level, it should always be on no matter what, so I can understand if GC is not affected by what I described. I'm not an expert at GC though.

TRIM on the other hand IS and I know this from benchmarking my own SSD after what I described. In my case I am using SF-1200 and afaik, there was no solution other than doing a sanitary "erase free space."
