Assuming that this is directed to me, yes... I'm actually asking how to get that done with RAID enabled. I've been reading for quite a while, and with other boards, you can incorporate the intel RAID menu within the BIOS, or should i say, UEFI itself. However, i just can't figure out how to do a UEFI install of windows 8. It should shave off a few seconds of boot time.
On a different note, can someone help me with overclocking using our board? I've read Sin's guide and i "think" i've managed to get it stable at a modest 4.3GHz overclock. I can pass 20 runs of IBT on Maximum but I cannot seem to make P95 stable. The application itself either freezes, "prime95 application has stopped working".
Using an offset of -0.0350, I can do 4.3GHz with a 1.164v CPU-Z readout and pass 20runs of IBT (I only need 1.152v on manual, LLC at Turbo). I tried upping the volts to 1.172v until 1.242v but P95 still stops working just after an hour running a custom blend with 90% my ram. Going beyond that my temps hit about mid 80's. LLC is set to standard, PWM Control at eXm perf, Vcore response FAST, C3/C6 disabled, C1E/EIST enabled, RAM is at XMP. The rest is on Auto.
I'd appreciate any inputs... Thanks in advance!Edited by h3llRaiz3r - 5/19/13 at 12:43pm
