Thanks for the reply.
May I ask if there is a cheap controller that can pass trim and is Sata 3 compatible.

I don't want to spend more than $30-40 and I don't want to justify a mobo switch either as that will be too cumbersome just for a gen 3 ssd.

None that Im aware of...but then again its been awhile since I looked at cheap add-on controllers. Why not just run it off your ICH 10? Sure you will lose SOME performance...but A) its free B) doesnt require any PCI slots C) you get TRIM....and did I mention its free ;)

Then later when you do get around to upgrading your mobo...you will get a nice little speed boost. :)

OR
Just skip this gen and keep using your X25m gen 2. Its not like you got a "bad" SSD right now.
