I like everything else tho. If the search was back to how it is in win 7 I'd be using Win 8....i had some other issues with it too that i forgot. I still use it once in a while via virtual machine tho.

update your IRST driver and or disable hot swap in the SATA settings in the BIOS.

Is that the Intel Rapid Storage? I got nervous on that one as I couldn't tell if it was for my chipset or not so I just left it alone lol


EDIT: Did not see the readme on the download scree, verified 5 series chip-set. I just installed it and no more eject for my drives.

Awesome guide.

Just to help you didn't have to re install, you need to change a registry setting to accept ahci, and I told you about that ahead of time why did you set to ide anyway, there was no need. Also you don't have the correct setting you installed drives as removable set them to the other settings and check the two boxes. You can get to these settings by going to device manager and right clicking on each drive and going to properties.

My drives are setup in the bios properly and once I installed the latest rapid storage drivers it fixed the hot swap issue.

Also I did not change it to IDE on purpose. It was left over when I backed up my OC settings. I thought it only saved the oc settings but it was the complete bios setup. I could not even get it to boot windows so I just reinstalled it was not a huge deal.

Got a quick q...

Just recently move been experiencing slower performance with the Samsung 830 series boot drive I have... I went into my Intel rst driver and noticed it was in sata 2 mode on the marrevell port also... I'm changing it back to the Intel sata 3 port,..will that hinder trim and garbage collection in any way or will it pickup where it left off?

No need to worry about it.

That is done automatically depending on the drive. Most modern drives handle it automatically and no need to worry. If you are using windows 8 you can manually trim your drive by using optimize in defrag utility. If your using windows 7 depending on brand of drive, OCZ for example has a trim command in its utility.

Hey all,

I apologize for this post, but I am new to overclock and this looks like an extremely useful bit of information. I was just wondering where can I find the latest updates to the guide? Are the first 3 posts updated or are the updates throughout the guide?

Thanks!
