Intel’s TRIM Support for RAID Coming to X79 ‘Soon’
When Intel finally announced TRIM support for systems using RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10 setups, users with multiple SSDs and Intel motherboards couldn’t have been happier. Before this, TRIM was available for SSDs but only when single drives were used outside of a RAID environment.
The Rapid Storage Technology (RST) 11.2 driver update was rolled out to the public but the initial positive response was somewhat tempered when enthusiasts realized their X79 systems weren’t supported. Only P67, Z68, Z77, H67, H77, Q67 and Q77 chipsets are certified, which tends to leave some Intel’s highest paying clients (enthusiasts and power users) out in the cold so to speak. Older motherboards based on chipsets not mentioned above aren’t listed either, but that’s likely due to the complications and limited ROI involved with porting the newest driver structures over to EOL’d platforms.

Good news for me though :-)
Ruh roh ssd drives will become even more popular
can you verify support for 6 series chipsets? anand and techreport are reporting support for 7 series only.
From Intel's own release notes:
To me, that indicates that 6-series mobos are supported.
I'll contact Intel now for further clarification.
here is the article i was referring to, just in case you were interested
AnandTech - Intel Brings TRIM to RAID-0 SSD Arrays on 7-Series Motherboards, We Test It
it looks like 6 series boards can use the new rst 11.2. we just don't get any trim support for raid. :angry2:
i guess that's what i was referring to.
