ASUS / ASRock / MSI / GIGABYTE BIOS's with updated RAID OROM - Page 69

post #681 of 3922
Hey man! I heard you helped lots of guys here, but not 100% sure what with.

I have the following:

Asrock z77 Extreme4
i7 3770k
Corsair H100
2x Intel S-ATA3 330 series 180GB
Asus GTX 580 Direct CU II
NZXT Phantom

ok,I stop
so intel 330 s-ata 3, 2x 180gb, with asrock z77 extreme4, on the intel ports
how do I raid0 them and how do I get trim and everything perfect in raid0?

Or what is this really about?

Cheers!

Well, Intel SSD Toolbox, as you said, do not do a "fake" TRIM when you select the manual TRIM feature, as it require an Intel only TRIM supported SSD to function..

It seems to work, atleast the tool says so and behaves like it usually does on a singelSSD, on my Intel SSD 520 raid0 array using a Sabertooth P67 with latest OROM and drivers. It seems to behave like with a singeldrive, where it takes some time before it actually completes the TRIM-session, as the drives are not at it's best performance for quite some time after the tool reports as completed, as it did with singelSSD. Now, I have several Raid0 SSD arrays, and this tool works only with Intels own drives, both single and raid0, it's completely greyed out on all other brands..

As the tool says, it needs a working TRIM environment and firmware to work, and this kinda sounds strange in itself, since raid0 and P67/Z68 is supposed to be a none "TRIM working" environment.. So, if the tool actually function, as it seems to do, automatic TRIM within win7 should also work, as one excludes the other unless Intel found a workaround as they do NOT write that Z77 is a condition for this to work, just that one must have win7+IntelSSD's+OROM/RST-11.x inplace.

It could just be an anomaly, and looks like it's working, but are infact not working, but why would my Intel array then get an performance penalty several minutes after a Manual TRIM like with a singelSSD if no TRIM-command was passed thru to the array. Lots of questionmarks about this, but my pretty degraded 520 array seems to recover performance after a few passes of manual TRIMMING and benches does show significant gains, with the typical loss of performance of SF SSD's never to be recovered unless one SE's the drives, some/most subscores have indeed matched the clean drives. And FYI, I did not have to rebuild my array at all, just had to update the OROM and do a driverinstall (f6flpy-x64, hate the RST CPL and bloatware) of the latest version, and all worked..

The trim command from the toolbox is likely a passthru command i.e. not the same as the W7 OS trim command.

Is it possible to mod bios of MSI x58 Platinum SLI ?
It has AMI bios and Intel orom 8.5.0.1030 and because it has smaller size I'm not sure if it is possible to mod it for latest 11.6 ?
If possible would you mod it please.
BIOS can be found here http://download2.msi.com/files/downloads/bos_exe/7522v39.zip

That is why when you replace module you want it to be of exact size (or smaller).
Intel orom 11.6 is almost twice in size uncompressed and any modules that come after it inside bios are moved. I really don't want to brick my mobo and not be able to boot.
I must find information on this before eventually flashing bios.

If I were you I wouldnt mess with it iunless I knew for sure the Stock BIOS supports 120K OROMS

Sorry... (mouse problems) lol It fell of its wheel...
Anyway... I would like to know also how to find this info, as I am also stuck with old OROM

*EDIT* : I have the same board as mentioned above in the quotes... MSI X58 Platinum SLI version of the MS-7522 series
I have heard there are three versions of this board each identifiable by their BIOS version number.... It is my understanding that all the "Platinum SLI" (NOT PRO or PRO-E) have a 3.xx bios.
