post #1281 of 1592
So here's something odd. I just installed the newest nVidia drivers and then ran the nVidia force-enable for PCIe 3.0. I have two GTX 670's in SLI (I decoupled them before updating drivers, etc) and a GTX 560 Ti for dedicated PhysX. According to GPU-Z, before I ran the force-enable, all three cards were running PCIe 2.0 with both 670s at x16 and the 560 at x8. Now, both 670s are at PCIe 3.0 x16, which is awesome. But now the 560 is running PCIe 1.1 at x16. I checked my UEFI and it had everything set for PCIe 3.0. I then tried individually changing the slot for the 560 to PCIe 2.0 x8 to see if that would help, but it has not. So regardless of the UEFI settings, now I seem to be stuck at 3.0 x16 for both 670s and 1.1 x16 for the 560. Has anyone heard of this happening before? Any ideas how to get the 560 set back to 2.0 x8 or 3.0 x8?

Thanks,
JML

Well, never mind. LOL Once I re-established the 670s in SLI and dedicated the 560 to PhysX again, GPU-Z reported the 560 was back to x8 lanes.

So far, so good. Looks great, too. Got a red/black theme going on with my rig now. How are you liking it?

I'm loving it! Way better than my old Gigabyte AM3 790FX board. I overclocked my cpu to 4.8 with no problem thumbsupsmiley.png. I cant wait until I get a real water cooling setup. Had to buy some Gskill Ripjaw-z 2133 ram to get things running good. This was to easy http://valid.canardpc.com/2654641 lol.

Looks like my imc is good for 2400mhz + ram speeds http://valid.canardpc.com/2654818. Good thing I didn't waste my money on the Asus rampage.

So, I'm trying to install Win7 on my SSD RAID0. The drivers that come on the CD with my x79 Fatal1ty Pro mobo don't work, I'm guessing because they were meant to go with RSTe since that's all the board used with the old EUFI that shipped with it (the number is 3.0 something, which aligns with the RTSe scheme, as opposed to 11.7.etc that is the current RST version.) I've updated the EUFI and can select RST now, but I need correct drivers to make Win7 installation work.

At the ASRock web site's page for my mobo, it does have a driver package, but it seems to be an executable that I think sets up the Intel RST once Windows is already installed. I don't see any pre-installation drivers for actually setting up Win7. Does the same package contain both? Or do I need to look elsewhere? Anyone got a link to the file I need?

I did a search and found something labeled as a pre-install driver for the mobo, but once unzipped it, too, has a setup executable, so I'm wary that it's the right thing. I'll try it and see what happens, but if it's a bust, a pointer in the right direction would be mighty appreciated.

Thanks,
JML

I had a hard time the first time setting up raid0. My Ocz drives in raw state would not show up in the windows installer. I think I had to partition the drives from my other os install?

Well, I did previously get the RAID0 up and running using RSTe in the UEFI and the driver (I guess its the SATA RAID Controller specifically) that came on the mobo CD. However, I wasn't getting TRIM with that, so I want to install using RST. However, when I do that, Win7 installation says the driver is not compatible with my hardware. Hence, I am guessing it needs something different for RST than it did for RSTe, given the different behavior.

I did try to file I mentioned finding, and it did not work, as expected. No drivers detected. I'm pretty sure it was the post-iWin7-nstall RST set-up, mislabeled. So, I nee dto find what does work! rolleyes.gif

Surely, someone else has successfully done this, and knows where to find what Win7 installation needs!?!

Partitioning from another OS install, hm... Last resort, I guess. I just want things to work like they should (so idealistic, I know! lol) and to know I have the right RAID controller in place to ensure I get my desired TRIM support. tongue.gif
