I ask because reading up on SATA setup and AHCI in the MB manual I came across this in the RAID Configurations section:
"Due to chipset limitation, when set any of SATA ports to RAID mode, all SATA ports run at RAID mode together."
So can I run the SSD on a 6Gb/s port in AHCI mode, and the two HDDs on 3Gb/s ports in RAID mode?
Thanks,
Family Man

Yes you can. I'm using the same setup.

Theoretically and in terms of measurables yes there is undoubtedly a difference, just not sure if it is acutally one that humans can distinguish ( unless of course the belief that they can colors the sounds they hear.
By all means go for it if you can, but as I said the intel HDMI output won't serve as an hd audio output redface.gif

Most people may not be able to tell HD DTS vs regular DTS because they have a bargain bin Z5500/klipsch pro media audio system. However on a super nice Polk audio setup like mine you can very easily tell the difference.

Loving this board so far but I have two quick questions:

1) My old asus 790 board had audio drivers that featured an eq mixer. Is there anything like this in either the realtek/XFi drivers? I cant seem to find one.

2) I wanted to use hdparm via my linux ssd on my intel ssd with my windows install but I can't get the drive in a "not frozen" state. It was really easy to do with my old chipset and a little bummed it's been a pita thus far. Any ideas?

Your help is appreciated!

Yep, there is an eq function

Single click on the "Sound Blaster panel" in your task bar hidden icons.

Select "Sound Blaster Console"

539

There ya go, this of course does require you have the software installed from the disk or off Asus website

Most likely you still have the iGPU setting in the BIOS set ENABLED or whatever and thus your not getting the signal to the PCI-e slot. It's your SETTINGs there's nothing wrong with the Board or GPU card, take your time and read through the manual again. You'll get it. thumb.gif


As you can see from these videos, I'm using the right settings. It doesn't show in device manager when I'm in Windows either. That's if it should... but still frown.gif

After trying my X-FI Titanium with PAX drivers, I never went back to my Supreme2 onboard.

I didn't want to say it, but what I was thinking as well.

I have a HT setup with Yamaha receiver, polk monitor 70s, csII center, cadence 15" sub. I can't tell the difference from HDMI to toslink for the same DTS movie that's for sure tongue.gif

Can this board reach 5.0 ghz on a 2500/2600k if proper cooling and the chip allows? Like are there enough phases to allow the board to not be stressed with high overclocks?


EDIT:
ADD INFO, Cause I was planning to have 3x 6970 crossfire but I sold one for 300 dollars so now, I no longer need a board that will allow trifire. I have a budget now of 350 for a board if needed but If this board has all the solid features of the others I would like to purchase it.
