Should have got an i5 2500k

Dominator GT's are pretty good and look the best with this motherboard.

Hi

I need a little confirmation please. I’m trying to set the Marvell 9128 Sata 6gb controller to ACHI. Can anyone confirm where this is in the BIOS. Is it in the tab, Advanced > On-board Devices section under Onboard SATA6G ? It seems to be listed differently in the Manual.
Also, is the Intel Sata 2 controller in the Main menu under Main > Storage Configuration > Configure Sata As ? I would also like to set this to ACHI .

I’m Still running BIOS 1005.
Cheers

Yes to both questions! By the way, it is AHCI, not ACHI!

I would love to see a screenshot of someones BIOS setting who has an SSD as a boot drive. Everything from the S3 to storage configuration. I have been reading up on the ASUS forums and apparently our mobo does not really maximize the potential of the SSD. I also have very little knowledge in this dept so I could be interpreting it all wrong.

I'll be setting up an SSD tomorrow on my Rampage III Extreme mobo. Just a OCZ Agility 2 SATA II. I have the same SSD on my Asus P7P55D-E Pro mobo and it works fine. I installed Win7 with just the SSD connected only, with the storage configuration set to IDE. Once it was installed, I reconnected my RAID 0 array back up and set storage configuration setting to AHCI. I haven't really tested the speed outright, but I can tell you its a lot faster than any conventional HDD.

FYI, I just finish installing my OCZ Agility 2 120gb SSD. I did an install with IDE setting in bios, but got some weird error on some installs during WIn 7 and other programs, so I changed the setting to AHCI instead in the Bios with the SSD and optical drive connected only. Installed Win 7 again, then connected my old RAID 0 array. Windows will give you a format pop-up. Ignore this. You have to load the Intel Matrix Storage Manager software. Once this is loaded, it will see any RAID array you may have had before and load the drivers for all SATA devices. Of course you also have to loa the Intel Chipset drivers also. I then use SSD tweaked software program I have to set Windows settings for SSD operation. I have the full version which enables the TRIM settings also. I ran WEI tests and come up with 7.8 score for the SSD now. With my old RAID 0 array on 7200 rpm SATA HDDs, it would only give a 5.9 score.
