Another Rampage IV Extreme noob; questions???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I just finished getting Windows loaded on my RIVE. I'm running two Intel 320 SSD's in RAID 0, a 3960X, 16GB of Patriot Viper Xtreme memory, and a GTX 580 Lightning. Here are my questions:

1. I'm annoyed by the RAID "Ctrl i" screen that loads after the splash screen. Is there any way to disable that? Also the splash screen displays again after the RAID screen and the whole process adds tons of time to my boot times. I RAIDED the SSD's so it would be faster, not slower.

2. In the UEFI I set the X.M.P. but my memory still shows 1333MHz. Should I manually set memory speed and timings per Patriot? I'm asking because when I initially installed Windows I got a BSOD and an "overclocking failed" message on reboot even though all I did was set the memory to 1866MHz.

3. I don't see any options for LLC. Where is it???

I'm sure I'm going to have even more questions soon but thanks as always for helping me out guys!

1 - I don't know about the raid thing. But to shave a couple seconds off of the bios boot sequence, on the "Boot" page in the bios, set "Full Screen Logo" to disabled. And also set "Post Report" to 1 second.

2 - Set you frequency and main timings manually. Set voltage to what's rated on your sticks.

3 - Main page in the bios, goto into DIGI+ Power Control, LLC and other options are in there.

Also use this bios "1201" which I know works great because I installed it lastnight with no problems.

It will save you some potential OC problems.

Yeah, I'm thinking that if I have RAID enabled that I will have to put up with the RAID controller screen on boot up. To be honest I am quite disappointed with the speed of these two Intel 320's in RAID 0. They certainly don't load Windows any faster than my single 320 did and I'm having to deal with other issues that I didn't have before. I did score 7.9 on WEI for disks though...

Yeah for SSDs, I will not consider raid. They are bullets by themselves.

I scored 7.9 with my single M4 btw.smile.gif

Yeah, your RAID config will always require the RAID bios screen to load. It is on the Intel controller because it says [Ctrl_i]. The Marvell controller is [Ctrl+m]. Anyways, many people with SSD have gone away from RAID because the controller does not pass the TRIM command to the RAID disk, but there are rumors that this will be fixed in Intel's next RST drivers:

Intel to Finally Provide TRIM Support in RAID0

Based on information listed in its 11.5.0.1109 alpha release notes, Intel will be providing TRIM support with the final driver release.

"2. This release will not enalbe TRIM on RAID0 feature, but it will be added in the next RST 11.5 release. Contact your RST AE representative with questions."
