Post Any special things to do with SSD and Linux?
If I install CentOS7 on a IPC2 with a Samsung 850 Pro SSD is there then anything special I need to install on the Linux system for optimal performance or is everything handled by the SSD firmware (trim etc)?

As long as the SSD is detected in BIOS, nothing special to do.
You can test the read/write speed copying files.

For TRIM you generally need to add "discard" to /etc/fstab mount options.

Also a good idea to disable "atime" - i.e. "noatime" so as to prevent un-necessary writes to the SSD.

I've been using SSDs since 2009 in Linux and haven't had any issues. Have run G.Skill Falcon, OCZ Vertex2, Samsung 830, Samsung 840 and Samsung 840 EVOs.
