    Hi Guys I have a Intel 530 240GB SSD
    And when I enable Trimforce (El Cap 10.11.1) I get beachballs. Seems like if I disable it it's all fine.

    Is it because the SSD has a Sandforce controller?

    Sandforce controllers can be backed not a corner, where trim won't work properly. Is the drive really full? Have you been trimming previously? I'm running several Intel 330s and 520s and have had trim enabled (using Cindori's Trim Enabler) under ML for a long time without any issue.

    It's a brand new drive. Only about 80GB is being used.
