Also I looked at the Crosshair V Extreme.. and I dont see the feature listed, which makes me wonder if it was only a 890 Chipset feature.

Does anyone happen to know?

Thanks! Cause this would be one cool feature!
ooo +1, I've got a gtx 460 sleeping in it's box in the closet..

Can you install 3 GTX 460s in it and then only bridge 2 of them?

Since when I installed Windows the bios was set on IDE in the SAT config when I added the SSD it will only work with the IDE set in Bios. To change this without re-installing windows... you can edit the value in regedit from 3 to 0 and reboot and that directs Windows to activate AHCI... which after about 6 hours of new benchmark testings does make a significant difference in my scores.


Here is the fix I found.....

To Enable AHCI In Windows

1) Run the Registry Editor (regedit.exe)
2) Navigate to Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\System\\CurrentControlSet\\Ser vices\\Msahci
3) Set the "Start" value to 0 (zero)
4) Navigate to Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\System\\CurrentControlSet\\Ser vices\\Pciide
5) Set the "Start" value to 0 (zero)
6) Shut down
7) Start up again, but before Windows boots go into the BIOS configuration screens and change the disk mode to "AHCI". Save the new BIOS configuration and restart so that Windows boots.
When Windows starts, it will detect the change, load the AHCI disk drivers, and do one more reboot to start up with them
I just switched from AHCI to RAID and windows wont boot anymore. I had thought that I could RAID0 5 and 6 and leave 1-4 as AHCI, but apparently there are "chipset limitations" which force you to do RAID on the entire controller. Is it possible to fix this without reinstalling windows? I can boot it back up again (I think) if I set it to AHCI mode in the BIOS again. I can also be super blasphemous and hook up my SATA III SSD to the JMicron controller.

I'm also wondering, what happens if I need to reset the CMOS, will I lose my RAID0 configuration(and my data)?

Your manual (3-18) says you can RAID 1-4, but 5-6 only offer IDE or AHCI.

Usually to RAID you must create an array of disks, and then install windows. The driver is works differently for RAID or IDE and you must have a Windows RAID driver for Windows to access a RAID array, not sure if you can create an array with existing install, but I don't believe so. Backing up the install image after being sure you have RAID drivers installed may allow you to create the array and then restore the backup onto the new RAID array.

Resetting CMOS will not clear your data, or affect a created RAID array.

I run raid on my pc, the only options there are when raid is enabled are raid on ports 1-4 and raid or IDE on 5-6 ACHI and raid are not supported together.
I have my ports set up with 1-4 in raid, 1-2 running 2 raptors in raid 0, my dvd drive on 3, 4 is empty then I have my SSD with my OS on 5 and my game drive on 6, 5-6 are in IDE

When I set 1-4 to RAID, it automatically set all of them to RAID. It let me set them up that way. The RAID array appears to be active, it is just that windows doesn't recognize the SSD.

Regarding the 3x GTX 460 question, can you still do 3-way SLI though with them? I know you can run two cards without a bridge and take a performance hit, can you do it with 3 cards?

no, 2 can run in sli and 1 for phys x will work tho
post #519 of 10107
OK, so I went back to AHCI.

I can do

1-4 RAID, 5-6 IDE

or

1-6 RAID

There is no option for 1-4 RAID, 5-6 AHCI

If I just install the RAID drivers, can't I put my SSD on to one of the RAID ports? It isn't part of an array.

yes you can, I've done that, If you Re install the chipset driver from the CD after configuring your Raid it will install AMD Raid Xpert, this will allow you to configure your raid from within windows, Default user/pass are admin/admin I believe
