What you see under ATA/ATAPI Controllers is the driver installed and it is the default AHCI Microsoft driver needed for automatic TRIM.
Thanks ambizytl! That sets my concerns to rest.
When Intel finally deliver an RST driver that gives auto TRIM I will want to update my driver to it. So after I DL the new driver do I then use it to update the driver under the ATA/ATAPI Controllers and not the the driver under the SSD device itself?

To assure that Trim is running you can do the following:
Go to Start and click it
In the "Search programs and files" box type: Cmd
It should appear above the area you are typing as a little black Cmd icon
Right click on the icon and select Run as administrator
A black screen will appear
In the black screen you will see C:\Windows\System32>
Right after that phrase type: fsutil behavior query disabledeletenotify
then hit the Enter key
If you see DisableDeleteNotify=0 the Trim command is enabled if the value =1 it is disabled
