Hi guys, What are the devices that should be put in MSi Mode? currently I have those two.

personally i just put my graphics card in msi mode, dont notice a difference aside from lower dpc latency. putting some devices in msi will cause you not to boot but its pretty easy to figure out which

Try the GPU, the PCIe Root Ports and PCIe Controller. These should work in MSI mode without problems. Anything else, you'll have to find out yourself.
Fair word of warning: putting the SATA controller into MSI mode will likely cause Windows being unable to boot.

Yes, i've in fact already tried to put the Sata controller in MSi mode and that didn't go well at all ahah. I'm gonna try for the PCie Controller and Root Ports. Thank's

You need to install a SATA Driver (Intel RST technically). What motherboard do you have? I just do it through Device Manager, since I have no use for Intel RST and what not.

I read many times that Intel RST was not needed?? I'm confused. I have a Gigabyte Z87-HD3 with an i5 4670k. So do I, I literally have ZERO interest in having RST installed, could you help me out updating RST through Device Manager only?

Here, download: https://mega.nz/#!dMkRWCjT!vZkgbC1ogRxm8fmX53Q23c6LhABE-tfdB3K3HucFhuo - And install through device manager only. That's Intel RST v13.2.4.1000 - best for 8-Series/9-Series Chipsets.

Sorry to ask but where did you read/hear that this particular version of RST was best for 8/9series chipsets?

Edit: I just installed it and it automatically got put in MSi Mode.

Yeah, that's how it goes into MSI, doing it manually will cause you some headaches lol, I've done that before actually. Win-Raid.com forums, he did lots of testing, and I did some testing on my ASUS Z97-AR between a few versions, and settled on 13.2.4.1000. You can do some benchmarking if you'd like to compare drivers thumb.gif

Well I just played some custom on League and the game feels definitely far smoother than before, I thank you for this. This is very interesting, I might do some testing to see if v13.2.4.1000 is the actual best driver for my system. What software do you use though to do those testings?

Currently reading this btw
