RAID 0, SSDs, and TRIM. Will it work?

Plan on using motherboard's raid controller at this time.

I load large files for editing and want the read/write speed boost of RAID 0 while they're on my SSD for editing. Also I'll put my OS on it because I don't have any other SSDs to put it on. I heard something about SSDs in RAID o not supporting TRIM, but I wasn't sure if that was still true or what the work-arounds are.

I couldn't find any direct mention of RAID 0 and Trim on my SSD manufacturer's website, so I'm not sure if I should be looking at Z87 chipsets for information or if I should be looking at Gigabyte.....

Either an answer or a direction of where to look for an answer would be much appreciated.

The link to your motherboard doesn't work.

That said, I'm afraid I can't answer your question. All I'll say is make sure you do regular backups.

No TRIM with RAID. Also, you didn't find it on the manufacturer's website because TRIM is handled in the OS.

TRIM support for RAID SSDs was confirmed back in 2012, 7-series motherboards and up, if I don't remember wrong.

I wasn't sure if a motherboard's raid controller was something that was tied to the northbridge chipset or not or if it needed to have additional hardware. I've seen some motherboards with SATA 3.0 sockets labeled as 'intel' ports as opposed to the manufacturer's ports...

So I was a bit confused.
