ASUS / ASRock / MSI / GIGABYTE BIOS's with updated RAID OROM - Page 198

I Don't know, what motherboard do you have?
post #1972 of 3917
Gigabyte X79-UD5, running Beta BIOS F13p (if I am not completely mistaken - I am writing this form another PC, therefor checking right now is not possible)

a) it is true, that it can run with only one CPU, however in that case I do not know if that CPU hast to be a XEON, which are to pricy for my taste.

b) Even if it runs with a i7 (what we do not know) it can only utilize the 4 RAM-Slot belonging to that CPU-Slot.

c) I am not sure the board runs with normal Rams (maybe it needs reg ECC) I did not dig into this.

Regarding Video, it would really provide 16 Lanes if one used two cards, which is a nice thing.

So once I have a haystack of money, I might really crazy enough to try this out, but right know the costs involved in such a project are by no means justified by a potential result: Remember all I wanted to do it to attach 4 SSDs to SATA III ports instead of SATA II ports. Right now we are talking about switching CPUs, the Mainboard and RAM, money wise this are about 5000EUR just to accomplish that feat.

And here is an addional trigger even if I opted for 2 Xeon this would decrase my gaming performance, see here - it is a german page (since I am from Germany) but you will be able to read the tables.

So that would really mean spending a lot of money for less performance, where every single frame counts and no difference in every day applications, which make no use of 6 cores let alone 16.

Bottom line:

May be it would really be the simpler, cheaper and therefor smarter solution to opt for SATA-RAID-Controller-Add-In-Card.

The Problem with those: I read some posts about such controllers from LSI, they tend to overheat and that wont get any better if placed between two GPUs, furthermore (if I understood correctly) they need some space on the BIOS-ROM, due to the use of UEFI-BIOSes such space might not be readily availabe resulting in all kinds of quirks, like not being able to POST, being one of them.

Just as a sidenote, AMD provides 6 SATA III Ports on their SB950 that has been around for years, why cant Piledriver be a litte faster, I'd scap the intel build without giving it a second thought. It is more costly and less versatile as this discussion proves.

Amd make products for the moment, intel for lasting, amd after 3 years will decrease a lot while intel will be same performance smile.gif

Man change the plaftorm, this is the thing you need to do, and the best one will be z87 smile.gif with full gpus and no need for xeons, no need for raid card and so on smile.gif just sell old platform cpu+mb, keep half of ram wich is enough and transfer to z87 or sell the ram also and buy 16gb stick, aslo z87 is the new platform, so all things os apps will be optmized for this, is not a step down is a step ahead, wich at a moment you will do, so do it now and catch all the rabbits! biggrin.gif cheers!

Okay thx for the tip!

Neah betas dont remove options in bioses biggrin.gif

look for C3 C6 or even C4 C8
C1E is also called Enhanced Halt State

I do not think, that the Z87 suits me:

1) There are no 16GB-Sticks (at least none that are availabe in or around germany - the exception being reg ECC and those are not supported (i think).

2) If one uses 2 Video-Cards those are not working with 16 Lanes, the Z87 does not provide enogh and therefor will only work with 8x/8x

I wrote an email to the LSI-Support, asking if Problems are to be expected when utilizing one of their controllers on a X79-UD5 running SLi, should that not be the case I guess I am in for a SAS-Controller, that can be migrated to future system, while keeping the Raid intact an even the option of expanding it on the fly.

16gb sticks for sure will apear from all manufactures because of the new platform smile.gif

To bad for video :| as i said im not expert in this biggrin.gif sorry for your cause!

Thanks, I missed the answer... Unluckily, I need dvd-rom as 1st boot...

Could someone add my noob board the GA-Z68AP-D3 (rev. 2.0) to the list? I could do it myself but to be honest I would rather someone else did it and maybe others could verify. Still not sure I want to try this I cant have any downtime as it would ruin my leaderboard but I'm starting to think the orom is worth it(I always get the overtweak disease when things are running good and have to kill my rig. Hey its a habit. >:>. :shrug:)
