So can't afford a a DAC right now, but am trying to figure out the best out configuration to run into a headphone amp (Magni 2). The green port configuration for "Front Speaker Out" has Auto, looks like a 2 way speaker, then a 3-way image. I find Auto sounds different than either of them, or could be mental. Are they EQing the output to compensate for speaker type? No way to get a flat line out? Does anyone know if using Replay Gain to level your music collection...
I was doing something odd, on RAID controller one I had something like port 0: SSD, port 2:2TB, port 3:2TB, but all I saw after the new BIOS was port 0, 2 were non-RAID and 3 was a volume of the RAID. I think it was trying to go sequentially or something, I moved the SSD back to the secondary controller as AHCI.
The RAID0 is pure data, the important stuff is backed up via File History. All I really lost are my Steam/Origin games. This is just frustrating since its not a failure, its just a user error since I didn't remember to set the configuration after the flash. At least I assume that's what I did wrong.
Flashed new BIOS, booted without setting my RAID settings and bad morning started. It for some reason separated my SSD/ first RAID volume and left the second one as part of the set. I couldn't figure out a way to regroup the RAID volumes in the legacy or UEFI settings. Following some guide on how to remove the one drive from the broken raid and recreate it, then using Christophe Grenier's TestDisk to rebuild it all. I'm not totally broken up about losing the data, just...
I did have a fight plugging my CM V700 in as well, had to use way more pressure that I felt comfortable with but I did get it to lock.I wouldn't run it not fully down and end up with a burned connector.
WASD Please
I bought a second from Microcenter to setup a RAID0. First drive was from 2012 and new one from 2014, looked identical to me. Still running good with no SMART issues.
Guess they are getting slammed?I love the due to "we're sorry". error code.
I wonder if it would break the way windows sees the drive on the RAID controller but not in the array (like a JBOD) and need a reinstall. I'll give it a go with it on SATA 7 for now and maybe re-visit the ports before my next reinstall. Not sure I can handle patching Windows 8.1 again.
Thanks for the reply, the RAID0 is just going to be used for data (games, etc), I had already backed that data up. My issue was which SATA ports to use. My SSD is still a single drive just used for boot OS. I wasn't sure if there was a way to mix single drives on the controllers once you changed it from AHCI to RAID. Things seem to be fine the way I have it now, just seems odd to have the non-boot drives on the first SATA ports (mental issue of mine).This feels unnatural...
