M5A99FX RAID write back cache?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Did Asus update the AMD RAID BIOS for write back cache on these?

I just purchased one and am curious about it as I wait for it to arrive.......

Im not quite sure if they updated anything, but I just updated my bios and rebuilt my raid set, and now have writeback and write trough options, as well as read cache and read ahead for the read policy.

I was successfully able to move my RAID 10 array from a Gigabyte 890GPA board to my new M5A99FX.

It also allowed me to enable write back cache, which made me very happy. The newer RAID bios also detects drives sooooo much faster as well during a cold boot.
