Re: IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers not showing up, unable to TRIM SSD
so I did find the Intel RSTe installed and upgraded to the latest driver from the Intel, but sadly it did not alleviate the problem (and I was quite hopeful as I found several more posts about Optimization on SSD's being fixed and not grayed out with current drivers for the X79 chipset.) I also confirmed on the Intel RSTe forums that if optimization is grayed out, then TRIM commands are indeed disabled and not cleaning up the SSD. I still have to wonder if it has something to do with no IDE ATA/ATAPI controller in my device manager. I may try a clean windows 8 install.
