AFAIK the TRIM command still doesn't work on SSD's in RAID 0. I was confused when I first heard this too.

This is from Intel
Quote:

It will support TRIM with SSDs in an AHCI configuration, or with the RAID controller enabled and the SSD is used as a pass through device. An example of this use case is for users that want to use the SSD as a boot drive but still be able to RAID multiple HDDs together to allow for large protect data storage – a great use for the home theater PC. TRIM support for SSDs in a RAID configuration is under investigation and is not included in Intel® RST 9.6.
So it only works with a single SSD in AHCI or RAID mode.

Yup. No trim for raid on intel ich / pch controllers. What that states is you can have your "C" drive be a SSD and have a RAID 0 drive array (for your data "drive") and STILL get TRIM sent to the SSD. ;)
