My System Specs

Default TRIM Support with RAID 0 SSD's

So, I recently bought a 2nd SSD for my rig, so I now have 2x 128GB Crucial M4's in RAID 0. I did a fresh windows install after doing this.

The motherboard I'm using is an MSI Z77-G45A. I set up the RAID config through the motherboard (set SATA ports to RAID, then use the onboard RAID configuation tool before the BIOS splash screen to set it up).

Now, I was chatting with the IT guy here at work real quick, and he mentioned that TRIM may not be enabled with my current RAID setup.

So, my question is, how can I find out is TRIM is currently enabled, and if it is not, is there a procedure to enable it? The IT guy mentioned something about downloading a new BIOS, unpacking it, then packing it with a new ROM, then flashing it to my motherboard.

Does anybody know anything about this? Looking at you, AKG...or anybody else who is knowledgeable...
