post #5051 of 6374
Hi all,

I have an SSD on the 6G Marvell 9128 controller SATA port 1. I keep getting non-response lock ups in Windows, similar to a lot of other SSD users. Most of what I've read says that you need to enable hot swap or hot plug for the SATA ports in AHCI mode in the BIOS. But looking in the BIOS 0701 for the P6X58D-E, I can't find any option to enable hot swap or hot plug. How do I enable hot swap for the SATA ports?

Specs:
OWC Mercury Electra 6G 120GB SSD with Sandforce 2280 controller
Asus P6X58D-E motherboard with 0701 BIOS (recently updated)

Set it to default (IDE?) mode and use this utility:

Works great for me and I am still on version 4.1.1.0

I found the major problems with SSD's on my systems is if the BIOS gets reset (like from an OC failure) from AHCI to IDE and then the system doesn't work properly. Just whatever the default BIOS mode is, leave it at that (AHCI or IDE) and use that utility to hot swap stuff.

Keep in mind you can't hotswap a pagefile drive.

I thought the conclusion is the Marvell sata 6GB/s controller as used with the P6X58D-E is flawed and it is not even passing trim instructions.

Maybe time to bite the bullet and move to one of the Intel SATA 3GB/s ports. The drop in max read/write capability is more than compensated for by stability surely?

it's the marvel sata 6 port. move it to a regular sata 3 and the stutter will go away.

I'm here too.
Even with a hot summer I'm still stable at 4.2ghz (HT on) on a core i7 950.
I'm planning to buy a core i7 990X in a few months to maximize this mainboard and maybe a corsair H100.

By the way, to make a good stability test (if you are on AIR) I suggest running Prime95 at the lowest priority (use task manager) and furmark at the "HIGH" priority.
In that way you can check the airflow in your case and all temps will be higher.
That should not happen if you are on liquid cooling.
(Just my 2c)

I think all temps are higher if I'm stressing the GPU and CPU at the same time, as not 100% of the GPU's heat is exhausted out the back, and air from within the case cools my CPU blowing out the top. It's keeps my temps <70 with intelburn test at maximum, running a few runs, but that's not the case if I BOINC and have everything running hot. The CPU will climb up and up and the whole room heats up, lol.

On another note,
Do you think a 990x is the best upgrade option? I mean you can get a 2600k and best mobo out for less than the 990x and OC ability will be higher. I only ask because I was thinking this route for myself and think sandybridge would be faster.

Hmm Sandybridge is not yet featuring 6 cores. and 5ghz * 4 is less than 4.2 (or more) * 6.

Hmm.. I don't think a new MB + a good sandy would be much cheaper than a 990X (which can be found on ebay for about eur 600).

But we will see what the 6 core sandy will cost along with a good asus board.

Yep.. about the temps climbing up, that was the point of my test setup.

I'm not sure 6cores *4.2 can match 4cores *5ghz. That only really comes down to whether or not the said application uses more than 8 threads or not. If it uses 8 threads or less the 4 core wins. Folding, then yes the 6 core wins, that and video encoding, although I'm not sure with the new "encoding on chip" if that holds true

Hey everyone. I'm have a 2nd SSD inbound on Tuesday and I've had issues with RAID on this motherboard before (not knowing ALL drives had to be RAIDed).

Pics of my annual cleaning today attached.

I'm on BIOS 0303 (old skool ) I'll update when I get the system back up and running with the new disks.

So the problem I've had in recent weeks is that I've had all 5 hard drives and a DVD burner on the SATA 2 connectors and my BR-ROM on the Marvell. I've been forced to run them as IDE configuration. Every time I enable AHCI, I blue screen at the "starting Windows" screen.

My question is this:
I am removing the DVD burner, but will now have the following

SATA 2:

Raid 0 array 1:
Port 1: 64GB SSD
Port 2: 64GB SSD

Raid 0 array 2:
Port 3: WD Caviar Black 750GB
Port 4: WD Caviar Black 750GB

Raid 0 array 3:
(no flaming please unless I'm really gonna screw something up) I know I'll lose the extra 140 GB.
Port 5: WD Caviar Blue 640GB
Port 6: WD Caviar Blue 500GB

Marvell SATA 3:
Port 1: Samsung BR-ROM (shows up in device manager as Toshiba.)

From personal experience, what settings should I use to avoid conflicts here? I know how to do the RAID, I'm just worried about the whole issue of if everything has to be in a RAID, where does the optical drive come into play? Is it OK on the Marvell?

Thanks

I think I might've had an epiphany. What if I put both of the SSDs on the Marvell and enabled the "super speed" mode? This is just layman's terms for a RAID 0, right?

Then my concern is "due to chipset limitations blah-blah" if I enable RAID on the Intel, will I be able to use the optical drive on one of the SATA 2 ports? Because I obviously can't raid a DVD drive if I enable Raid for the rest of the drives on the Intel.
