holy crap its 80 bucks cheaper? hmmm i'm tempted in building a 2nd pc now lol

on a side note, should i rename the thread so it can acompany the E revision or should i stick with the P6X58D PREMIUM THREAD

Has anyone noticed that Windows 7 Control Panel doesn't seem to recognize the 21x multiplier? For example, if you have your BIOS settings at multiplier 21 and BCLK at 190, Windows Index will say that your CPU is at 3.8GHz. Am I missing something?

Well, you learn something new everyday. I have been trying to make a RAID 0 array after I just picked up my second 1TB HDD today. Right now I have 3 HDD's

1. 1TB HDD
2. 1TB HDD
3. 250GB HDD

I had all my Windows 7 OS, programs, games, music, movies etc... installed on on HDD 1. I figured that since I would be picking up a second 1TB HDD and going for a RAID 0 array that it would delete all the info on my current HDD. So, I used Windows 7 'Backup and Restore' feature to make a system image of my current HDD so after I configured my RAID 0 array I could restore the new array with the image and everything would be fine.

So, I went out and bought the 2nd 1TB HDD today, made a system image and saved it to my 250GB HDD 3 for temporary backup. I then wanted to test that everything would work and be the same when restoring the system image so I restored it on the new HDD and booted from it and everything was perfect, absolutely. Great, so now I decided... I have a good system image of my computer the way I want it, let's go ahead and make the RAID 0 array and restore the image to it. Went into BIOS, made the array and restored the image to it and restarted my computer. No, no, no... not happening... it doesn't work. Once Windows starts it immediately goes to that lovely blue screen we all know and love. I don't know if you knew but I didn't. Apparently because the image did not come from a RAID array you cannot restore it to a RAID array. Therefore, the only way I can have RAID is if I want to re-install Windows and start over... which I don't. So, no RAID for me. This is just a heads up if anyone was planning this or didn't know about this like me. Anyone have any ideas how to get around this if it's even possible?

Also, on a side note... looking at this board again and having a 5870 I noticed that crossfire should work just fine but if you wanted to go for tri-fire wouldn't the 3rd card cover the bottom portion of this board, like the SATA 5 and 6 slots, power and reset buttons etc...? It really doesn't look like a third card would fit. Anyone have tri-fire going on this board?

Considering the E is just another revision of the premium I would incorporate the thread for both.

Marvell 9128 supports RAID for the SATA III ports and 9123 doesn't. That will be another big difference between the old MB and the new one.

That was the principal reason why I RMA'ed my Premium board and got me the Gigabyte one. Little did I know about the E coming. Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

Thanks. Its funny how everyone on OCN says this chip supports raid. Then you go over to XS and some guy says it doesn't. Asus and Marvell along with 10 other people says it does. So it does.

I can see where your confusion is coming from. I was confused as well right after being madly in love with the board for the roughly 10 days I've had it. Refer to post# 1562 on page 157 of this thread. I've copy pasted what I have received from ASUS Support.

so the FINAL VERDICT IS:
It does have RAID support sure but only on the SATA II ports that are on the intel storage controller. SATA III ports are managed by the marvell 9123 chip which doesn't support RAID. You can even refer to Marvell's documentation for validity sakes.

http://www.marvell.com/products/stor...duct_brief.pdf

If you look at the table on the very first page of that document, you'll clearly notice that the 9128 has RAID support while the rest of its predecessors do not(well except for 9125 but the 9125 was slated only for stand-alone PCI/HBA cards). Alternatively, you can also refer to page xi in the P6X58D motherboard manual. Look for the storage controller section in that table. Here is what it says:
Intel ICH10R controller
6 xSATA 3.0 Gb/s ports
Intel Matrix Storage Technology Support RAID 0,1,5,10
Marvell® PCIe SATA 6Gb/s controller
- 2 x SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports


and that's about it. No RAID info under the Marvell section. That should end all claims that it supports RAID for SATA III


However, for now all of this is a marketing hype. From Benchmark tests Intel Storage controllers on the southbridge which manage the SATA II ports have kicked the marvell storage controllers ass by a huge margin of 28%. Or so this article claims.....

http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=413&Item id=38&limit=1&limitstart=7



But the 9123 was a bad chip design right from the outset. It started in the conceptual design phase and the problems continued to happen in production roll-out and had major yield issues in post-production which delayed its very release.
http://www.legitreviews.com/news/6193/

The list of 9123 haters just continues to grow and I'm somewhere out there on that list. Care to join......
