I did not quite follow the whole mSATA story... as i know, in the early days you could not install an OS to the mSATA drive, it was only
for caching. Since there are bigger mSATA SSDs now for an affordable price, please update me on the mSATA.
Can i install an OS on a mSATA SSD on my Z77X UP7 board?

did you try to install mSATA SSD on board as cache or OS drive?

i got one today (kingston 120GB) and will be playing with it this weekend. cool little thing smile.gif

I recently installed on adata sx300 120G windows 8 and I like it. It is very strait forward: dvd/cd priority one for installation and msata drive priority two where you going to install it. I running raid 0 intel ssds on my windows 7 and msata windows 8 for gaming because I believe msata has way less latency since it has no sata cables and it is sitting close to cpu. Reducing latency as much as I can is good for FPS games. I switching priorities of SSD and RAID/AHCI in bios depends which OS I want to run.

Is this true ? I was wondering about it a while ago, from what I understood then the only real advantage of msata was to have a ssd without needing any place in the case to screw it in.

Similar question, would the Akasa Medusa fit on mine ? I don't want to have issues with those massive heatsinks

The above is the same link as you would get from this page wink.gif

While i'm here... just curious... has anyone used low voltage ram on this board... I am having a hard time getting it to boot with XMP profile 1 selected...

The kit is G.Skill Sniper 1.25v

I've had issues getting other Z77 boards to boot with this kit (the kit is known good, works fine with X58 etc) so I just wondered if Z77 boards had issues with low voltage ram in general, and if any of you guys had encountered this issue...

Happy flashing and clocking smile.gif

How do I instal this mod/bios?

Hey, I just installed it, proceed like you would with any other bios file, I use Q-Flash which is supposedly more secure.

If you don't know how to use Q-Flash format an USB stick in Fat 32 filesystem and extract the bios file on it. Then once inside the bios press F8, select your drive then the file and let the bios update itself.
Everything you need to know is in the board manual.
