what two mobos would you recommend? one compatible with the 3930k and one for the 2600k

Another victim of "TRUE SATA 6GB/s" speeds huh?

so is it just the X58 boards that use the aweful Marvell controller for their 6gbps ports?

Nope, any motherboard with the Marvell SATA 6GB/s ports. Never use then imo.

lol so do you happen to know a good mobo LGA 1155 that uses a different driver for its 6gbps ports?

All 1155 chipsets have much better controllers that use more lanes to get the faster SATA III speeds...

You (just like me) have a Marvell 9128 chipset which only uses 2 PCI Express Lanes, while the MARVEL 9182(vs 9128 like us) uses 4 and can get the faster speeds...

only high end 1366 boards like the Sniper G1 Assassin or the Rampage Black Edition have that chipset if you want to keep your current processor/RAM...

If you are going to upgrade, might as well wait for a more efficient and cooler(hopefully) Ivy Bridge...

ok thanks for the explanation.. il probably just wait tongue.gif

i have my Vertex 3s on the intel ports right now and i've already redone the array once because one of the drives failed.. today when i booted up the driver told me it failed again but there were no actual obvious effects. i was still able to access all my files, so i reset it to normal state. Is this a problem with the drive or the raid setup?

Greg Kerr, I know this is an older post, but I have the Vertex 3's in RAID-0 on my Intel controller with the Rampage III Formula and get about 550/550, your speeds are not even close to what you should be achieving. I would uninstall anything Intel storage related, reboot, and reinstall chipset drivers from ASUS. Also make sure you're using the correct SATA cables as there is a difference between SATAII and SATAIII cables.

Thanks for the reply. I'm actually sending another drive back for replacement from OCZ today because the one they returned to me the first time failed...
I have the drives on the SATA II ports with SATA II cables. I'll try uninstalling and installing new drivers again when I get home tonight. My read speeds have been around 520MB/s in this setup but the write speeds have only been around 140MB/s. If all else fails I'll settle for this until my next build with Ivy Bridge and Kepler and hope the new motherboard's 6Gbps ports do what they're supposed to.
