Default Trim and raid?

I just noticed I can't enable trim on my 2x SSDs in raid0... not that its a big deal to me but was just thinking...

Yes that is normal. No RAID controller supports passing TRIM commands through RAID0 yet.

Yup...same issue here. The only thing you can do right now is just let the garbage collection do it's work. It works best if you let your machine sit idle for a while. A few times per month, I just turn my PC on and leave it at the login screen for an hour as suggested by OCZ.

My PC is never turned off...and since I can't fold while afk due to heat buildup in the room this shouldn't be too big an issue!?

You should be OK leaving your PC on all the time...as long as your SSD's get some idle time, then your OK. As I mentioned, the OCZ guys said sitting at the login screen is best.
