I was searching for some help in regard to implementing the mSATA SSD on this board ,the max size for caching that you should use is like 60Gb but you only need around 30Gb (the 30Gb are pretty cheap ),60Gb should be sufficient if you want just OS on it
here are two i was interested in

P.S.the mSATA SSD have been around for sometime now (laptops)and they are pretty good

Thanks for the links! thumb.gif

I'm guessing Gigabyte added this feature to their top end boards for a reason (More Speed). If you look at the shape of the mSATA drive and where it connects to the MB, you will see it couldn't have been easy to build it into the board. I have to believe it makes a difference for them to go through all this trouble.

Another quote from Gigabyte:
Quote:
The GIGABYTE EZ Smart Response utility is a simple application that allows users to quickly and easily configure their system for Intel® Smart Response Technology. In the past, enabling Intel® Smart Response meant users needed to enter the BIOS in order to configure their system for RAID mode, which then required a complete reinstall of the operating system. Once that processes was complete, users then needed to install the Intel® Rapid Storage Utility as well as configure Intel's Smart Response Technology. GIGABYTE EZ Smart Response does all of this automatically, without users having to perform a complicated install process. This allows them to quickly and effortlessly enjoy a significant boost in system performance.

I'm going to use my 64gb M4 SSD as a cache drive only when I put this rig together. I will let you know if I think it was all worth it when I'm done. smile.gif

Speaking as a consumer:

This mSATA is something that is only going to penetrate this market segment if there is an added enticement from the board manufacturer. I see this for the reason sin stated; many just go directly to a larger SSD & run a much larger HDD as storage.

They could easily include a rebate for a mSATA from a single or multiple manufacturers of said device. That way those purchasing a board with this touted ability, such as myself, feel a simple added perk to buying said device that utilizes said device. This would also, in my opinion, lend itself to the thought process that GB believes people will indeed find an added value through system performance with this upgrade they helped provide & would thus spread the word more readily about the product they own & enjoy... But that's just me..

I was thinking about this, i may end up getting a 32GB mSata SSD for cache though! thumb.gif

Since this SSD is on it's own channel, I'm thinking it may help quite a bit (Like RAID-0 speed). Since they have made it easy to install (And remove) I figure why not give it a try? Someone will probably stop by and post that has tried this out before since it was also on the Z67 boards (Because this is OCN and we try anything to get more speed). wink.gif

anyone successfully overclocking the samsung 30nm ram on this board?

I've got timings manually set in the bios to the default numbers thats listed on the left side.

1.5 volts and 2000 mhz with 11-11-11-28 and prime fails in 2 minutes. so disappointing.

got it back to 1.46 volts, 1866, same timings, and so far prime stable for an hour.

But reading that large thread about this ram, got me so hyped up for it and now just bleh.

BTW, I'm running performance enhance turbo (whatever that means).

Eh, i'm hyped for it too..
Tell us how it goes, if it's not that great i'll just get 8GB of ripjaws locally and then get another 8GB in the next couple of weeks, saves importing RAM. tongue.gif

Mind you, double the ram only works out $25 more for the Samsung kit and it is technically better..

EDIT: That or i'll wait out some more and get 2x 8GB sticks, meaning i'll be able to max the memory if i ever need it!

Thread Starter 
you should do much better than 2000mhz, at least 2200mhz. If you are referring to the thread on XS, beware those guys don't say how many modules they binned nor what kind of cooling. The guy posting the 2800mhz and 2600mhz shots towards the end later said one stick died on him because he cooled them with DICE. Also some kits don't do well at all, some get tick at around 2200mhz, never heard of one at 2k tho.

ANyways Samsung memory has no issues on these GB boards, however that memory kit in particular hasn't been optimized, so it stops at around 2400mhz, if you try one stick in slot #2 how high does it clock?

I am going to bring this issue upfront next week, so even if it isn't clocking so well now, 2000mhz requires you to be better with the timings and voltage(try 1.65v), it should improve with BIOS updates.

Also try superpi 32m for memory stability.

BTW your timings are way too lose.

FYI go to the third section of timings(the 34rd timings) and change all of those to 8s and then the last two to 7s, that will help. Also the first two, change the first to 10500 and the second to 93. ASUS has this section all loosened up, but GB keeps it very tight for better efficiency, and in general it hinders OC frequency unless loosened. Also try 6s and 7s.

Try stability level 4 or 5 as well for both.

the samsung generic ULV has no XMP, and that is the issue.
