Default SSD Upgrade

So I physically installed my new SSD, connected everything, updated drivers etc, cloned the existing drive with the included software (Samsung if that matters), restarted and set the boot priority and now...? I'm not sure if I am using ACHI mode or not, how big a deal is that? Is there anything else that I need to do? Can I just wipe the old drive and start fresh with it?

You need AHCI mode for TRIM so that has to be enabled. You should also take a look at the SSD guide on the forum and follow it for optimum performance, but ignore the SSD utility part.
