Synopsis: Enable TRIM in a Windows 7 PC running under AHCI mode and using the Microsoft AHCI driver. Read this entry for instructions on how to get peak efficiency from your SandForce SSD today.

We've recently had a few customers ask us how to enable TRIM in their Windows 7 PC running under AHCI mode and using the Microsoft AHCI driver so their SSD will operate at peak efficiency. This requires a bit of modification to your PC's registry as SandForce SSDs have one TRIM sector while the Microsoft driver is set up for 8 TRIM sectors.

To modify your registry, follow the instructions from the Exceleram PDF below.
