Section 4.4.3. of the Motherboard User Guide says "Due to chipset limitation, when set any of SATA ports to RAID mode, ALL SATA ports run at RAID mode together."

Apart from the pidgeon English I'm trying to figure out exactly what this means. Does it mean that if you have a couple of disks in say RAID0 then you can't have an additional single (non raid) disk as well?

Hi All,

I am new to the forum and just got this board (mainly based on the reviews, results and pictures from this thread - you guys rock!)

Couple of questions before I get started:

How does enabling RAID impact this boards performance. Should I look into a separate controller card?

I have the i7 930. Will the initial Bios (0301?) boot with this chip and allow a flash, or will I need to find an i7 920? (Don't know if this board will ship with the 0402 bios)

On an a side issue, should I use a different TIM than the material shipped with the Corsair H50 ?

Any advice would would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I'm in the exact same situation, this mobo, H50, 930. I haven't put mine together yet as I'm waiting for the cpu and the psu to arrive.

I'm pretty certain that the board will be fine with the 930 on the old bios. Also I'm going to try the standard TIM as I've read that it's pretty good. I've got some MX-2 and MX-3 standing by too.

I'm going to be putting my two Intel X25-M G2 80GB's in RAID0 using the onboard raid controller. It seems that it has decent performance for light raid duty but obviously not as good as a dedicated card with onboard cache etc.

I'd be interested to see how you get on, we can compare notes.

I'd really like an answer to this question if somebody can help....

Further to my above query (post #1483) I have this question too. Can I run 3 SSD's in RAID0 (system disk) and also run 3 Samsung F3 1TB's also in another RAID0 (for my projects).

Is it possible with the onboard RAID controller and is it stable and fast?

(Data is backed up overnight to external USB drives)

Another quick quetsion with this board...

Anyone using the Noctua NH-D14 with it?
Whats its footprint on the board like? are dominator/fin style heatsinks on RAM going to be a problem? Or are we lucky enough on this board for the dimm slots to be spaces far enough away?

well that can't be right, there are couple members here with raid 0 ssd + single hard drives, but if you're that worried, the sata 6 ports are on a different controller, therefore you'll still have two single sata ports if the sata 3s are all in raid 0.

there are 2-3 members here with the 930 running on the original bios, but a bios update shouldn't be too hard, if you don't have another computer to get the bios from there is always the asus express gate you can use to get online and get the updated bios from there.

as far as i know, you'll have some trouble with the taller heatsink, there are couple pictures by members themselves on page 1 of this thread, hope this has helped, cheers

Yeah, thanks, diddnt notice that actual heatsink in the pictures.
It looks like its actually overlapping about 3 dim slots.

What slots are we meant to fill first? blue or black?

Begining to think the Corsair H50 is a much neater solution.

you have to fill the blue slots first, the blue ones are slot # 1,3,5 respectively, and the black ones are socket 2,4,6 respectively.

the d-14 is no doubt the best air cooler on the market, however you really sacrifice alot of space to achieve that extra 2-4 celsius drop in temp, imo a prolimatech megahalem or the H50 will be plenty for you to hit 4ghz stable. as long as you applied the proper amount of TIM and good fan selection.
