TechGage have a guide on how to enable TRIM support for SSDs on Linux operating systems (which can be very worth while!):

Owning an SSD that supports TRIM is great, but while Windows users have the benefit of having TRIM enabled for them, Linux users need to take the manual route - at least, at this point in time. In this article, we tackle the simple process of doing so, and also show how to verify that TRIM is indeed working as it should be.
Check out the guide here.
