Marvell 91XX Sata Controller 6GB Driver for Windows 10 - WHQL Driver Date 4/30/2015

This is a Windows 10 WHQL certified driver, which is not provided by default on some systems, for Windows 10, including the X58A chipset and other older Intel chipset motherboards. This will upgrade the SATA3 Controller from Marvell, on your motherboard, to the latest Windows 10 drivers. These drivers, for whatever reason, are also not on the Marvell website.

Big question here....

I'm running a GA-Z68XP-UD3 (rev 1.0) and do not have the Marvell drivers installed. Is it worth it to install these? Or just let Windows 10 install whatever it installs.

Core i7 3770K
GA-Z68XP-UD3 rev 1.0 (BIOS F-10)

thanks for the driver ) However, there are things to consider.

Marvell's original driver will likely report SSD drives as HDDs to Windows. Therefore, you wont be able to TRIM them. What is worse, Windows occasionally might defrag SSDs during scheduled drive optimization.

Microsoft's generic driver is ok, except it tends to show internal drives connected to Marvell controller as removables.

So basic workaround is to have MS generic driver with some manual registry edits – to properly show SSDs. More details here – scroll down to 'OPTION 2: AHCI (Non-RAID)'.
