    AFAIK there is NO raid controller that supports TRIM at all when the SSDs are in the raid.

    I am not sure what you asking for, but the answer is No.
    Please spend an extra minute re-reading your sentences before posting.

    As, of this second there is no raid controller that supports the passing of trim commands to SSDs in a RAID array, from the OS, only SSDs not part of the RAIDed array get them.

    SuperTalent Whitepaper quote:
    "Another important limitation of TRIM is that it only works on discrete SSDs, not on SSDs in a RAID array."

    Now OCZ makes some Z-Drives with garbage collection, here is a couple examples:

    OCZ SLC Z-Drive R2 e88 PCI-Express SSD
    OCZ MLC Z-Drive R2 p88 PCI-Express SSD

    But there is a little thing with the cost:OCZ Z-Drive R2 E88 OCZSSDPX-ZD2E88512G PCI-E x8 512GB PCI Express SLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD):eek:

    This one is a little less:OCZ Z-Drive R2 P88 OCZSSDPX-ZD2P881T PCI-E 1TB PCI Express MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
