I consider myself fairly knowledgeable....

I've been doing computer repairs for 15 years in one location.

Now that I'm working with SSDs how can I be sure Trim is working in Windows 7?

The computer I'm doing currently I had to flash the Bios from a P5K to P5KR bios so I could enable AHCI. Device manager shows a AHCI controller as well as others. They supplied a Patriot Wildfire for this build, I had suggested a Intel 320 or 510 series to ensure durability and the Intel utilities.

On the ones I built for myself and my brother and in my laptops I used the 320 series and run the Intel utilities so I don't worry about them.

This Patriot Wildfire, no utilities, no firmware updates. Samsung's I wouldn't worry, Kingston I wouldn't worry. Since this is for a friend I do worry.

Since Trim helps keep the drive speeds up I'd like to be sure it is working. I've seen conflicting information on the internet.

Thanks
