True.

In the RST 11.5 Alpha Release notes It states that RAID TRIM is supported but currently disabled. It also states this will need an OROM update.

So, RST 11.1.* drivers == NO RAID TRIM yet.

In the spirit of RAID TRIM for SSD's, I've attached a P8Z68-V Pro (not gen 3) bios with the OROM 11.5 update integrated into it. I've flashed it on my own P8Z68-V Pro(non-g3) and I've been testing it for a bit and works fine. It's based off of the current 3203 bios and the only thing that was changed was the RAID OROM.

Note that TRIM on RAID is NOT yet supported, it is NOT enabled in this firmware nor the 11.5 drivers. We have to wait until intel releases final 11.5 OROM and drivers.

Also, this 11.5 release is an early alpha release, expect issues!

I had no issues when I ran it for a long time and never saw anyone else mention issues they had. Either way I'm now (since the 3xxxx) BIOS using 11.1 OROM considering there's no TRIM atm anyway.

Thanks guys for clearing things up a bit with your input this is what I thought was true. I'm aware of Intel's efforts with the 11.5 driver and knew of it's potential to unlock trim in 6G raid configs. I'd like to point out that this is also a function of the .inf chipset drivers as well. You may recall we did not get TRIM support on a single 6G port until Intel updated the chipset driver (inf). So I think it will also have an update before we will see full support. A t least this is my understanding, please correct me if I'm wrong. For that matter W7 may also need an update. In there lies the rub and why it's been a long time coming if it ever will. This is one reason why I'm so disappointed with the X79 chipset which is still limited in the same way and no more than two native 6G ports. It's the one area that has not kept up with innovation as Intel rushed the new platform to production and a shame really.

I believe that 11.5 Alpha orom is dated from last summer. I modded my bios to version 11.0.0.1339 a couple months ago. Not sure if there's an even newer version available.


NEW 3203 BIOS Are Available for the following 2 Non-Gen 3 mobos:
P8Z68-V
P8Z68-Deluxe

They should already be available on their respective Asus product links.

3201 seems to remove the setting for Additional Turbo Voltage.

I'm trying to revert using the thread from Hardforum but AI Suite II will not do it's part. It says (in Engrish):

Warnning! BIOS inner framework was changed. The BIOS image can't use in this motherboard, please specify another one.


457

update: I started over again to go back to 3201 with AI Suite II. There was no problem but it showed 0301 as the current BIOS even though it had just denied that version (above).

After successful flash to 3201 and reboot (cleared CMOS) it will not post. The CPU LED is red.
