(should it be using ahcix64.sys from the asus support DVD?)
I suspect not as with this installation, my WEI is 7.6 not 7.9 as it was with the first insall.

thanks


AMD AHCI Driver V1.2.0.164 for Windows 32/64bit 7.

AMD RAID Driver V3.2.1540.24 for Windows 32/64bit 7.

not that i know but i think that you will need 2 drivers one for raid and one for AHCI

Well the only reason it's half price is because it's a shell shocker... just wondering.

Hi, thanks for the link, i swear i was looking at that page not so long ago but it must have been fridge blindness smile.gif

When i try to change the driver using device manager, windows says that it already has the best driver for the SSD which i find confusing, is there a way to force windows to use the proper driver?

Also, what drivers are others using with a SSD?

Thanks

go - device manager
update driver
browse my computer for driver software


i'm not the best at this but i think you will have to uninstall the raid and then install ahci and then install raid

in windows device manager it should allow you to install the new driver anyway

like i said i'm not the best at this ???

or when you install windows you should load both drivers at the same time
all so you can use the asus dvd to install ahci and then update the driver if necessary

i have 2 ssd's and 3 hard drives both sets set to raid 0 - i tried ahci but did not work the 1st time so i used raid 0

I've been having a problem with the temps on my board. (Asus Crosshair IV Formula) I've uploaded a pic to show the problem, Every program I check with comes back the same way, except BIOS. There is a difference of 12Cish on Idle between CPU and CORE temperatures, stock no overclocking. BIOS shows:

CPU: 40C
Northbridge: 50ish
Southbridge: 40ish

Specs:
1090T, Cosair H70
Asus Crosshair IV
Mushkin 8GB ram (1333mhz 2x4GB)
Ati 2600Xt
Windows 7 64bit

Any ideas whats going on?

I'm not entirely sure but I believe that typically Thuban reports hotter than it actually is on HWMonitor and PC Probe II.

That's an AMD app(your jpg) so it probably gives you as good a temp indication as you are likely to see with anything else. You may not have any problems since 40cish and 50cish is about right.

My CPU is running under load at the moment, reporting 39c and 52c CPU/NB. mellowsmiley.gif

i think you will need more air flow in your case
try using PC Probe II from the ASUS dvd
your temps not out of line but if your room is warmer this will make a difference
it is important that your cooling block is on square with no uneven pressure

Tweeky,

Although I just set my BIOS to AHCI (IDE, AHCI, RAID being the choices of course) and have no problems with my Intel X25M SSD, I have decided to take no chances and therefore downloaded the drivers you provided a link to:
Quote:
AMD AHCI Driver V1.2.0.164 for Windows 32/64bit 7.

AMD RAID Driver V3.2.1540.24 for Windows 32/64bit 7.

not that i know but i think that you will need 2 drivers one for raid and one for AHCI

http://usa.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD...mula/#download

Also, good advice on the Corsair RAM. Good quality product and exceptional tech support.

My question: On the Crosshair IV Formula board, should I be using the:

1) 1902 BIOS
-or-
2) 1304 BIOS

I have followed the thread pretty closely but might have missed the answer to this question. If I did, please excuse.

(CPU's are AMD 6-core 1090T and 1055 (?), the slower of the two.)
