Crucial release new firmware for M225 SSDs, supporting TRIM
Hot on the heels of Intel’s ill-fated firmware update for their 34nm X25-M SSDs, Crucial have announced new firmware updates for their M225 SSDs supporting the 64GB, 128GB and 256GB drives. We can only hope that Crucial’s new 1819 firmware fares better than Intel’s TRIM update, after all the reports of it bricking drives under Windows 7.
So far there have been no reports of anything untoward in Crucial’s firmware update, although they do have a couple of warnings on their download page, reading:
WARNING: The firmware update process is done entirely at your own risk. Before initiating the update process be sure to backup or make copies of all important files. If the firmware process is interrupted your solid-state drive may not function properly.
And a notice for users of their SSDs with 1711 firmware:
Firmware 1711 - Important Notice:
If your Crucial M225 Solid-State Drive has firmware 1711 you must first revert back to the 1571 firmware prior to updating to the new 1819 version. Please download the 1571 firmware and follow these instructions.
There are still obviously a lot of quirks in the SSD firmware from all manufacturers, but it’s a good thing to see all of these new updates.
If you’re running one of Crucial’s M255 drives, you can download the new firmware here

its available in the uk for defo, you just have to order and wait longer for it, its just not a mass produced model due too the price and the extremeness of it

It's been and gone, there was only a small number of them produced and obviously only a small number of these trickled into the UK and the rest of Europe.

The E759 (Full x16 speed 3 way SLI version) was one of 1000 boards and it's very unlikely you'll find a new one now. The E760 is also not likely to be available new anymore either.

You should anyway. Classified is overrated.

Asus Rampage Extreme is where it's at.
