    So I imagined, but the articles I kept reading did seem a bit outdated on the subject. I've checked the settings you've mentioned and confirmed that AHCI is enabled (checking Samsung Magician software), but how can I check if Trim is also enabled, or is it so by default?

    Thanks again!

    To check, enable or disable Trim:
    After Windows Installation, you can try if you can enable trim this way. You can open the Admin Command prompt and type:
    fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify

    DisableDeleteNotify = 0 : TRIM is already enabled and working in Windows
    DisableDeleteNotify = 1 : TRIM is not enabled

    To enable SSD TRIM support in Windows
    fsutil behavior set DisableDeleteNotify 0
