I don't mine testing for stability and testing different Vcores as long as there is a starting point. Thanks!

It depends entirely on how good the chip is, but 4.5-4.6ghz should practically be guaranteed (although 4.5 may take as much as 1.35+ on a worse chip). The majority of ivies are 'bad' chips too, it's relatively rare for a chip to do more than 4.6ghz on reasonable voltage. Just make sure to keep temps in line.

If you got a good chip, there's no reason not to push more from the chip, 4.7ghz, etc. I think you really need to delid to go above 4.7ghz though as you'll need above 1.3vcore for that, even on a great chip. If you are okay delidding though, the sky is the limit.

SB and IB are so easy to overclock on any board. It basically always -> up multiplier and voltage. Play with LLC if you want to. Offset overclock is also optional.

Correct, TRIM works on a single SSD for both the Intel and Marvell ports, whereas the recent update to Intel's drivers enables TRIM support on a RAID array.

Unfortunately, no (based on the motherboard's out there as I understand them). You'll handicap the headroom of even a single GPU as its access to the PCIe x16 lane will throttle down to PCIe x8 in favor of the new PCIe RAID card that's > x1 in order to get reasonable RAID speeds.

I've heard rumors of an ASROCK motherboard that has a so-called "bridge" avoiding this dilemma of stealing PCIe lanes. Sound right? Anything else in the Gigabyte Z77 family that does this too?

Not necessary if you use PCH lanes. Like last PCI-E x4 on UD3H is based on PCH.

The chip that you're referring to is PLX and it's used on G1 Sniper 3 and UP7.

You also need to have a BIOS which contains the latest Intel ROM for the controller. I believe version F15o contains this.

On my system checking Windows 8 shows TRIM is enabled and is being passed onto the controller, however running Trim Check shows TRIM doesn't appear to be implemented by the controller.

Good to know, I usually run with SpeedStep completely disabled and run a constant Vcore and not use Offset. My current 2500k is running 4.6ghz at Bios 2.70v vCore (actual is 2.74v) and has SpeedStep disabled.

You wrote "not necessary," but did you mean to say that (at least on the UD3H -- and probably on the UD5H) plugging a RAID card into the "last" PCI-e x4 slot will have zero impact on the PCIe x16 slot and its GPU?

And thus why would the PLX chip add anything?
post #5119 of 6656
UD5H and UD3H have different lane configuratons.

UD5H uses CPU lanes on all 3 slots, so it will be X8/X4/X4.

UD3H uses PCH lanes for the last X4 slot. So it's X8/X8 and X4 2.0.

So with UD3H a RAID card in that last X4 will have no impact on GPUs, but with UD3H when you use X4, you can't use PCI-E x1 slots because they share lanes.

Here is my post about PLX. Don't want to write it again lol.

And here is how PLX actually communicates with the CPU.

Please help, my main BIOS is corrupt so I switched to the backup BIOS to boot my system.

Tried clearing the main BIOS using the jumpers, switch and removing the battery, but to no avail

Is there anything else I can do? (should I start a separate thread or is this thread OK)?
