The download link worked for me at ~2:00AM CT.

Found my P67 board there (ASUS SaberTooth P67) with the latest UEFI/BIOS version. But I have a concern...

Not with your OROM update, but the 3302 UEFI. As you know, in order to use an Ivy Bridge CPU in Intel 6 series chipset boards, a BIOS/UEFI update is needed. These UEFI updates are common for 6 series chipset boards.

What I have noticed reported in forums, is users that blindly flashed their UEFI to the IB compatible version, while still using their Sandy Bridge CPUs, have problems. From UEFI options not working, settings no longer present, OC capability lost, it is not pretty. ASRock lists several driver updates that are required when changing to the IB compatible UEFI, no surprise IMO.

My point is, I still use a SB CPU on my SaberTooth P67 board, and have not flashed to the IB UEFI, and have no plans to do so. So I am considering requesting an earlier version of the UEFI (2103) be modded with the 11.6 OROM.

NO REASON OR HURRY TO DO THIS, I'm not even using this board now, changed to Z77 for RAID 0 TRIM.

Just wondering about your thoughts and comments on this.

I just now had a "oh @!?#" moment...

I have 3x500GB HDD in raid 5, on the Intel RST controller, together with a single OCZ Vertex 3. Obviously enough the controller is set to Raid mode...
Am I gettting the TRIM on the SSD? Controller is in Raid mode but the SSD isn't part of an array..
(I am running Windows 8 and the CMD TRIM check query returns me a 0, and that means that the command is being issued, but is it the case of mine, where the SSD is plugged into a controller set as raid?

I think the issue was that Intel ME needed to be updated in order for SB to work correctly in the BIOS.

No worries. TRIM is still being passed with that configuration. Intel mentioned way back when that TRIM is enabled using a non-RAID SSD with a HDD RAID configuration.

It will support TRIM with SSDs in an AHCI configuration, or with the RAID controller enabled and the SSD is used as a pass through device. An example of this use case is for users that want to use the SSD as a boot drive but still be able to RAID multiple HDDs together to allow for large protect data storage – a great use for the home theater PC. TRIM support for SSDs in a RAID configuration is under investigation and is not included in Intel® RST 9.6.

Hi,

Would it be possible to modify my xtreme9 bios?

I'm not sure that this OROM will work for X79 chipsets, Theres two diff device ID's listed in that BIOS. Lets wait on that until theres some more proof that it will be compatible.
