Thanks for the response. So you suggest a large SSD? Then everything else on an external hdd? Would getting one large be better than 2 smaller SSD in raid 0?

Hey I was just curious....Is anyone having problems with the audio (I think mine is shot) I re-installed the drive and did a coupe clean OS installs with no luck?

Raid 0 is fast, but the speed of the single is very fast by itself, I think the only difference would be which numbers pop up after a benchmark.

Yes, I think a larger SSD would be best, the other HDD would be faster as internal, not external.

Have you checked to see if the internal audio is enabled in the BIOS? Other than that, I've never heard of a sound card dying...

The only problem we have with these boards is the SATA3 (6GB) controller is crap so we can't run our fancy new SSD's up to full speed. Don't see much differance there either.
So, if were still here, means we didn't get sucked into the P67 / Z68 chipset thing. These boards don't have the PCI express lanes needed for proper SLI.
My question is.... How long before you upgrade to the next ptatform and which one will you use?
Will you go with the X79 chipset boards and Sandybridge? Or wait for Ivybridge with the new Mobo hat chip will bring? Or wait for future platforms?
I'm asking this group because, we're in the same boat. Still have alot of life left with the X58 board, but starting to think about the future.
btw..... I have my i-950 @ 4.0 with 1.28v

I was very happy with my P6X58D-E until this weekend when I installed an Crucial M4 SSD. The drive showed a couple minior SMART warnings so I returned it today. I planned to simply replace it, but now I'm not so sure. Somehow I managed to stay completely ignorant of all the Marvel 9128 issues until yesterday when searching for solutions to my install issues. What piece of crap. The entire reason I spent an extra $50 on that board was because it was "USB 3.0 and SATA 6.0GB/s ready." I could deal with a little extra latency/reduces speed (though not to the extent that actually occurs), but lack of TRIM support is nothing short of pure FAIL, and arguably, downright misleading. "Sort of SATA 6.0GB/s ready would be much more accuracte. Unfortunately, I NEED those two SATA ports to work properly. With the SSD, I used all eight available SATA ports.

I'd consider upgrading, but as you mentioned, other than the Marvell controller, issue, there's quite a bit of life left in the 1366 socket for all but the most demanding multi-thread users. The Z68 chipset at least offers a couple of built in SATA 6.0GB/s ports and you can really crank up the speed on a 2600 CPU, but it's enough to warrent spending $700+ to replace my board, CPU & DDR3.

Regarding the X79/LGA 2011 platform, I'm just simply disappointed.
  • No official PCI-E 3.0. Supposedly it's there, but I want Intel to put it in writing before spending hard earned $$$ on a new motherboard and CPU. I'm not falling for the "ready for blah blah" advertising again.
  • Only TWO native SATA 6.0GB/s ports and 4 SATA 3.0GB/s (AMD supports 6 native 6.0GB/s SATA ports)
  • NO native USB 3.0 (I'm sure this has nothing to do with trying to Intel trying to push for wide-spread adoption of Thunderbolt),
  • Up to FOURTEEN USB 2.0 ports (who needs FOURTEEN USB ports!?)
  • lower max temp limits on the CPUs/less overclocking potential.

Given the length of time between the release of the 1366 socket and 2011 socket, I would have expected the following:
  • EIGHT (8) total SATA ports with, at mimimum, four native SATA 6.0GB/s ports along with four 3.0GB/s SATA ports (no external controllers should be needed or used!).
  • Official Intel stated PCI-E 3.0 support.
  • 8-10 native USB 3.0 ports. There's NO excuse for the lack of on-board USB 3.0 ports. At absolute minimum 4 native USB 3.0 ports along with 4-6 USB 2.0 ports. 10 USB ports is enough for 99.999% of users. Feel free to throw in a Thunderbolt port as well, but stop hindering USB 3.0 adoption.
  • Support for 2000 Mhz DDR 3 (I think the max "official" supported speed is 1600Mhz.). If you can't be in front of the curve, at least be near it. 2400Mhz DDR3 is already out.
  • CPUs with same thermal limits as 1366 CPUs
  • Some sort of assurance that the same socket will be used for "Ivy Bridge - E." I would NOT be happy to lay out $900 (plus quad chan DRAM cost) for a socket with a 12-15 month life span.

I agree that apart from the quasi-fraudulent Marvell controller nerfing SSD performance along with causing other issues, there is quite a bit of life in the old 1366 socket platform. Apart from multi-thread power users, I can't see a compelling reason to justify moving to the X79 chipset. Frankly, six months ago I thought I would be scrounging for $$$ to upgrade to the 2011 socket shortly after release. Now, my plan is to wait for IvyBridge / IvyBridge-E while hoping that AMD manages to stay in business so that Intel has some competition.

hey guys,

question, i tried installing an OCZ agility 3 sata 3 6gb/s SSD on this board but upon boot up i get an error "Sata 1 drive - atapi incompatible, Press f1 to continue". In my bios i had the setting on AHCI. i had connected the drive to the 6gb/s sata 3 slot. I have been ready that there are issues with this port as it makes use of the Marvell® PCIe 9128 controller :. should i rather connect it to a 3gb/s sata port or is there any other issue im not aware of?!!!!

Thanks in advance!!

I have a WD 1TB drive used for storage along with my SATA III SSD as the boot drive. Thing is, you got everything right, except for the possibility of you not setting the boot sequence to another drive. I set my boot drive to my 1TB drive, Marvell bios comes up after post message, and it boots to the Windows 7 on my SSD. Strange, huh? I was on for HOURS trying to figure it out and google would not tell me a damn thing about why it would not boot directly to the SSD. But yeah, set the boot to another drive and NOT the SSD, and see if it takes you into Windows.
