[Official] Asus CrossHair IV Formula/Extreme Club - Page 1087

post #10861 of 13131
ICG, from your earlier posts it's clear to see you are no dummy, I hope my post didn't offend, I was looking round the net for a guide and really didn't find much.
I read both drives need active partitions to be used in an array and I haven't done this before either so I looked through the manual and you didn't mention the RAID ROM I was wondering if you hadn't setup the array but was loading the drivers in windows setup.
There is a video on you tube on how to set the array but it's a different bios...
Got to go to work so if I can find the video again later I'll post it for you.

Hi everyone,

I would like to know what do you think about this exotic setup on a Crosshair IV Extreme.

Currently, I got two HD6970 DirectCU II in crossfire and want to add a GTX 580 Matrix. But at the moment, I don't want to use Lucid HydraLogiX.

So I was thinking to plug the two HD6970CU in crossfire in PCI-E Slot 1 and 3. And finally the GTX 580 on slot 5.

If I want to use my crossfire I switch off PCI-E slot 4 and 5 with the buttons switch and If I want to use the GTX 580 I switch off slot 1,2 and 3.

(also I will plug and unplug the power on the graphic cards in function of the need but that is not the matter)

Do you think it is possible to do that?

Thanks for helping

No!
Why would you do that anyway? The less cards you have the better. Sell them all and just get a 590.

iamlongtime, far from it! You have a good sense of humor and I really, really enjoy it. Especially jokes at my expense. Always have enjoyed setting myself up as the fall guy - except this time it's completely without intention.

This time with my feeble attempts to set up a RAID configuration I really am a Dummy! However, I have so many viable directions to pursue, thanks to all the help I've been given here at OCN, that I think it's only a matter of time before I get things going.

Thanks again for the "Why for you want dead SCSI-like tech mistah? "

590 is just too noisy and less powerfull than a pair of GTX 580 Matrix Platinium.

Also with my motherboard I can't setting up a real SLI.

Think I will wait and one day buy a Formula V and and two GTX 580 Matrix Platinium.

Hi everyone,

I am building my first gaming rig and I am using the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula. What I want to do is eventually go with an SLI setup with the graphics, but I have read that you need to trick with with some sort of hack. Where can I get this hack software and how do I install the hack? I will be using Windows 7 64bit for an OS.

Thank you so much for your help.

Check out the OP under the "Owners List" where you'll find a list of helpful links. There is one on the "How to" SLI Hack.

Not too long ago I commented that RAID was only for Fools, Drunks and People Who Need a Hobby.

Well, after two weeks of playing with it, I stand by my original statements. So much so that I am sorely tempted to throw these two Intel X25M 80 GB SSD's in the back room rather than try to link them in a RAID configuration.

I can only approach this problem with humor, so my apologies to those who still believe in this technology.
RAID

Thinking that the ubiquitous RAID Expert would solve my problems, I have tried installing it right off the Crosshair IV Setup DVD - well it ain't on mine. So I downloaded it, all versions, and installed them from:

1) http://wwwd.amd.com/AMD/SReleaseF.ns...t?OpenDocument

2) http://wwwd.amd.com/AMD/SReleaseF.ns...AE,Windows%AE7

3) http://wwwd.amd.com/AMD/SReleaseF.ns...AE,Windows%AE7

Well, here's what RAID Expert (?) is supposed to look like:

And here is what I get (2 pics):

Raid set up in 3 easy steps
1. In bios set sata 1-4 to RAID
2. At the raid controller Ctrl F capture the drives for Raid
3. Start windows installation and press F6 to load raid drivers

Does your raid controller show your ssd's as Functional ?

Thanks Tweeky, I surely do know you mean well. Not at all trying to be sarcastic but I have done this "by the book" procedure so many, many, many times my fingers are beginning to bleed and my brains, or what's left of them, are running out my ears.

is where things come apart. Win 7 slap me on the wrists that I don't have "acceptable" drivers - and I have, if anyone has kept up with the drudgery of my many posts and updates, tried any and all drives that are available from the North Pole down to the South Pole.

Only one thing I know for sure now quite late in the eve is that East Coast folks are downright comedic when it comes to earthquakes.

A 5.8 is no more of a shaker for Californians than a bus rumbling down the street in downtown LA.
