I just like to request for some inputs regarding my setup… i’ve read the easy trim test thread and did some tests… I apparently don’t have a working TRIM function. What’s weird is that all indicators found on Intel’s website (Intel TRIM FAQ) says, TRIM should be working. Here’s a screenshot of the settings.
Considering that i’m using a Z77 board, Windows 8, the latest Intel OROM and RST Drivers, what do I need to do to get TRIM to actually work? I’m not sure what i’m doing wrong or what i need to get it right.
Thank you in advance!
welcome at Win-RAID Forum and thank you for your contribution.
Now to your problem:
Which Firmware version do your Corsair Force GT SSDs use?
I ask this, because someone at AnandTech found out, that the Firmware versions 5.0.0, 5.0.1 and 5.0.2 are blocking the TRIM command. For details you may look into >this< review.
I believe I have the latest firmware, version 5.05a on both SSDs. Technically, 5.03 should’ve fixed it already… so i’m at loss.
As you can read in the Corsair Force GT Review at AnandTech, Sandforce Controllers are generally very "tricky" resp. complicated regarding the TRIM support.
That is why I am not sure, that Corsair really has been already able to solve the TRIM problem.
that’s quite unfortunate… thanks anyway, i guess i’ll just have to perform a backup and secure erase every 6 months or so.
