X58 boards and Rampage 3 Extreme Marvell Sata 3 drivers?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all

Could some of you help me out.

I've just ordered a 240gb Vertex 3 and I'm going to be running it on my Rampage 3 Extremes Marvell Sata 3 ports.
For all of you also using a Vertex 3 and X58 board with a Marvell Sata 3 controller what have you found to be the best drivers so far and what the drivers know to have Trim support??

I know that the performance of the Marvell controller is not up to that of the Intel Sata 3 ports on the P67 boards but its better than nothing.
Cheers.

Well it depends on the marvell controller, there are 3 now and 2 months ago there were only 2.

SE9123
SE9128
SE9182

The SE9128 is what you have, just install what is on the disc, or DON't install any was then stock MSAHCI.sys drivers will install instead of the marvell ones which might be better. make sure to updated your BIOS as it will update the firmware to the Marvell SE9128.

The GB G1 and OC series which were just released have the SE9182 which rivals Intel PCH P67 speeds and RAID 0 ability. Of course these are very new boards and the R3E and 95% of X58 boards aren't, but the R3E has a nice enough SATA6G controller for a single drive, you should be just fine smile.gif
