well FYI if the Saber you are talking about is the 990fx I have to say it is one bad board (bad as in great) I got my system 100% stable for the first time ever it feels like and things (game and such) seem to run much smoother, in fact the only prob I am having which at the moment seems to be averted is Nvidia driver probs but 280.26 seems to be the stability king now just need a little of 258 and 266 proformance in it and we will be nipping at sandy bridges heals again

very glad for your input because thats the board i wanted it will keep me from having to buy new video cards and i allready have the 1075 and 16 gigs of ddr3 1333 memory so all i have to buy is the motherboard

I did however fallback on my training to my very first build a 286@12Mhz many years ago and what I did got me running much faster than I was and more inline with spec of my SSD... This is how I solved the issue.

- I wiped the SSD completely.
- I connected the SSD to SATA slot 1 {AHCI} and the DVD to slot 6 {IDE}, also in BIOS set the speed to SATA III instead of auto.
- I used the great SSD write-up here http://www.overclock.net/ssd/929553-...p-secrets.html. Please note I did not change the registry for msahci, see below for reason.

- But the big difference is that instead of using thw WIN 7 AHCI driver, during the custom install on WIN 7 I loaded the AMD ACHI driver from a USB drive that came with the install CD for the Crosshair IV board, I checked for hours online yesterday and could not find a new release that worked with my controller chip so this is the one for this M/B.

This pushed me over 100Meg faster reads in HD Tune and over 150 points higher score with AS SSD benchmark, also I am not seeing the drops when running HD Tune it is more constant... Just for ****s and giggles this morning after testing again and making these screen shots, I went into the registry and changed the msahci from 3 to 0 and re-ran both tests and with HD Tune I could see the sharp drops in read speed, and I was 21 pionts lower with AS SSD, so I put it back to 3...


Thanks again for the help, and I hope my trouble shooting and fix posted here helps someone else, one less headache for someone to deal with...

Above is what I posted after getting the SSD as my bootdrive and is working fine, my question is what do you think I should do for the following:

- 1X SSD (for WIN 7 only) - SATA 6Gb/s
- 4X WD 750Gig HDD's want to run in RAID 10 - SATA 3Gb/s
- 1X DVD+RW
- 1X BD+RW

Since the Crosshair IV M/B has 6 SATA slots that can run at SATA 6Gb/s and 1 SATA slot for SATA 3Gb/s and I only want / need the SSD to connect at SATA 6Gb/s the RAID array for the HDD's and ODD can run and at SATA 3Gb/s speeds is fine by me, I have tried the following but run into issues

SATA slots 1-6
--------------
Slot 1 - SSD
Slots 2-5 RAID 10
Slot 6 DVD
Then the BD is connected into the on-board SATA 3Gb/s right next to the RED SATA connectors, it's not configurable in BIOS (that I can find) and set to IDE from what I can see by moving the SSD to it and trying to boot, it worked but was very slow...

My issue is that in order to setup a RAID array I must choose RAID for SATA slots 1-4 and my options for 5&6 are either RAID or IDE, if I set slots 1-4 to AHCI but than I cannot make the RAID 10 array...

I am getting much faster SSD speeds with setting 1-4 AHCI, but I would like to know if anyone has sloved this by getting the high speed as checking what my options are in the BIOS it really is limited...

Thanks in advance for any and all help...

There is a lot of articles around the forum on how to OC. I would do as much research as possible and come back with specific questions.
As far as the RAM, you may not need to bump it at all, just have to test for stability.

I have owned this board for a little over a week, I am liking it. Reached 4.7 with my 1100T but sold that a picked up a 1090T for the event at MC this weekend. It will be streamed and I will post a link if i can remember.

In your case and with this MOBO I think that software RAID may be your option, due to the 1-4/5-6 limitations.
If all are set to AHCI then you can create an array under windows disk management, Your SSD will function properly, dunno about the BD or DVD though, I'm a noob but messed with RAID on this Board!
You could get a RAID controller that would solve all yer problems.
