I will soon be receiving the ASROCK x79 Fatal1ty Profesional for my new build. W00T!
One of the things I plan to try is two SSDs in RAID0. I've used SSDs before and done RAID0 before with HDDs, but this is my first time doing SSDs in RAID0 (it'll be fun to see what performance gains I get, if any.)
Anyway, I know the SSDs I am getting have about 7% over-provisioned space on them to begin with. I may want to up that a touch, say maybe 10%. Again, it'll be fun to see what, if anything, that gains me.
But since the two SSDs will be in RAID0 and thus treated as a single volume, I am wondering what, if any, control I will have in balancing the amount of unallocated space between the SSDs. I've never used the UEFI in question before; does it allow one to manipulate the SSDs singly?
For that matter, will the unallocated space be arranged by the system in some way be default? Ideally, I'd like it to be equally from both SSDs, rather than all from one or some unequal ratio.
So, is there a way to tell how the unallocated space is distributed? Or control it if it's not even?

My Asrock Fatal1ty pro is on the way as well. I cant wait to play around with the bios settings. What kind of ram are you going to use?

Cool, we're in the same boat! I hear the UEFI is quite nice.

As for RAM, I got this set en route:

You?

Does anyone know if the UEFI for the ASRock x79 Fatal1ty Pro will accommodate a dual boot configuration with Win7-64 and Vista-32?

I think the UEFI might need CSM to handle the 32-bit OS. Has anyone happened to get this particular combination up and running on this board, or even another ASRock x79?

I have some old Hyper 1800 ram from my AM3 system. It will hold me over for now. I hear this stuff will overclock to DDR3 2133 @ 9-9-9 w/ 1.63v.

That's some cool lighting fx on the Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer. thumb.gif

My new RAM won't be quite as fancy with the lighting, but it will (eventually) have customizable colors, which I look forward to.

I like the price of it the most. I don't care for high Latency ram. I have a old kit that will run @ 1600 6-6-6-18 or 1800 7-7-7-24. To bad they need 1.9v.

I have already tried clearing the CMOS by button, jumper and removing the battery for over 12 hours I am now unable to try anything else for the time being as my PC is at a repair center under going diagnostics

It is nice to find low-ish timings where possible. My current Dominators run @ 1600 with 7-7-7-20 and 1.65V. However, its looking like MHz is still king and speed more than makes up for latency with the current crop. Still, I did think about timings the whole time I shopped, too.

hi guys,

I have a x79 extreme 7 board with i7 3820 cpu.

Does anyone have an idea why it shows in bios under cpu configuration for the cpu ratio: min:12,max:36 ?

I seem to have an issue when I set ratio to 37 or higher. I can't boot into bios; the screen just doesn't switch on for some reason, regardless of the voltage. I understand ratio is supported until 43, so why does it show max:36 and why can't i boot with anything higher?

I'm totally bricked on this.

;(

It seems I can only go higher with adjusting blck further than 125, changing ratio means no boot into bios. What the hell??

edit: this seems to happen whenever I go over 4,6 Ghz, regardless blck or ratio - but why don't I even get to bios screen, monitor simply doesn't turn on?

Just encountered a freeze at desktop after 2 days of thrashing (weekend), 3 weeks in a row.

It was to do with Ram timings with 8 sticks.

Seems the most stable setting is 13,13,13,35,2T, and EVERYTHING else in the ram fine tuning section on auto.
Ram volts at 1.695v

I was on settings like 10-10-10-28, 11-11-11-31, 12-12-12-33. all those froze.

All solid now after doing my specific tests that replicate the problem.

I just think it needs bios update for better ram module array support.

Edit: i remember reading about someone with 64GB using 8 sticks and having freezes as well.
