    I just received SAMSUNG SM951 AHCI. I never used SSD before and I not strongly understand computers. I am a musician. I very need your advices. TRIM...to be or not to be, cashing in internet browsers etc. Write me please step by step what I need to do after installation in SLOT? I will install Sierra.

    I'm going to install SM951 with a Lycom DT-120 PCIe adapter. My machine is Mac Pro 5.1(mid 2010)

    OK. The Lycom will work fine. Install in slots 3 or 4 (the top two). And YES, enable TRIM. Either with the Terminal or with TRIM Enabler or Disk Sensei. It's P&P.

    When you will install please let me know if the drive icon is orange. If yes is it also orange on macOS? Good luck!

    Drives mounted on PCIe cards in the cMacPro slots are considered "external" drives to macOS and OS X and therefore will by default appear as orange external drives. You can change the drive icon to something more of your liking if you wish.

    Yes, it looks as external drive, but bootable!
