Here is another thread over at Overclockers discussing it.




Save your money and get a better Intel SSD that supports Trim.
That's insane, is it only with the 480 in tri SLI (due to the large power draw) or do any other triple GPU setups have the same issue?

Edit: After reading through that overclock.net post someone had the issue with tri 470s.
