    Cool Patched TRIM in RAID! (Former: RIVE 3301 Patched for TRIM in RAID!)

    Ok what you've all been waiting for After an insane amount of coffee and tea consumption I'm proud to announce, TRIM under RAID!

    HowTo:

    1. Download my modded UEFI image: http://bit.ly/VXz2cI (Newer links below, read the enitre post)
    2. Download F6 11.7 driver from Intel here: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProdId=3449&DwnldID=22194&k eyword="Intel+Rapid+Storage+Technology+(Intel+RST) "&lang=eng
    (EDIT: There are newer driver versions)
    3. Flash UEFI image via USB Flashback method (EZ-Flash won't flash it..like any modded UEFI).
    4. Force install the 11.7 driver via device manager/have disk (You can use other 11.x versions BUT 11.7 is a must if you use Win8 due to a gazillion Win8 fixes it includes..Also I don't suggest anything bellow 11.6 as it's not made with the specific OROM in mind..)
    5. Reboot and rerun the Windows Experience Index assessment (Windows uses this to figure out if the drive is SSD or HDD). (For Win8.1, run "winsat formal" in admin command prompt).
    6. Go ahead and Optimize the array

    Special thanks to my testers: jezjohnson and broken pixel!!


    Disclaimer: This is my own work and is unrelated to ASUS. Also I am not responsible if this eats your data or makes you grow hair on your forhead..It has been tested enough but you know how these disclaimers go

    Notes:
    a) If you are installing a new operating system on the array the F6 drivers could probably fail, in that case install with a 3.x F6 driver and once installation finishes force install 11.x via device manager as normal.

    b) You do not need to rebuild your arrays. It works with existing arrays as they are


    The is only one image from now on. It includes both the patched OROM and the lastest UEFI Driver (Binary images: 12.0.0.1783 provided by Pacman, 12.5.0.1815/12.6.0.1867/12.7.0.1910&1936 provided by asder00 ). When you use the one, the other is not used at all, so there's no point making 2 versions.


    All files moved from dropbox to Necrosan's server. I want to take a moment to thank Necrosan for volunteering to host them and accomodating all my needs!


    The thread was getting too big and I was getting banned from dropbox for traffic every now and then heh. So new format, each board has a folder with all the mods for the board inside. Earlier versions are only OROM modded. those that come in 2 versions (plain and +UEFI) have either the patched OROM in the first case or an updated UEFI driver in the later. Versions after those have both.

    New mods will be announced here.

    Latest Rampage IV: 4310, Sabertooth:4210, P9X79/-Deluxe/-Pro/:4210, P9X79-WS: 3401

    FAQ or Things you should read before asking questions

    Q: Intel Toolbox is not working properly with this patch:
    A: With this patch forget the Toolbox.

    Q: How do I know if it working or not?
    A: Installing Win8 and doing it's "Optimize" is the only verified method of triggering TRIM on demand. Anvil works for some drives and not for others on Win7. Most of the issues reported are with specific drives under Win7. To verify that the drives actually act upon the command you need to use the hex editor method as posted by Fernando here:
    http://www.win-raid.com/t24f34-Easy-...t-methods.html
    This method is the best for checking but it is a bit involved. A simpler approach for ordinary users is Trimcheck by CyberShadow: http://files.thecybershadow.net/trimcheck/
    Source:https://github.com/CyberShadow/trimcheck

    Q: My XYZ drive gets passed the command but the hex editor test shows TRIM has not been applied.
    A: What drive controllers do with the command, depends on the drives.
    If it doesn't work with your drives using this patch it would not work on ASRock and Gigabyte implementations as well and it's either a drive issue or Intel OROM/driver issue.

    Q: Are there any drives /reported known to not work?
    There is currently no drive known as not working.

    NOTICE: Do not post ANY external links on this thread unless they point to Intel or a major manufacturer(drivers). I do not have time to personally verify any downloads other than the ones I make myself. Nor can I "police" the links in case they change to malicious targets at some point in the future. I can not support this unless I know exactly what's been flashed. Please respect this rule. I can not end up in a situation where I'm chasing an issue that doesn't exist because the user reporting it downloaded something else that may or may not be right.
    If you want to send me new driver or OROM versions, use PM instead.

    Thanks for your work bud.

    So will this only work with the provided modded driver?

    No it should work with any 11.6+ build as long as you force install it properly but I'm supplying my own modded driver to ensure that it gets properly loaded as my mod includes the proper device IDs.

    it works noden's 3303 with 11.6 orom, 11.7 intel driver- crystaldiskinfo states both drives have TRIM. Although, 11.7 for some reason by itself (before I updated to Noden's 3303) stated I had TRIM... I dunno. But it works. Thanks.
