Howdy

I had a bit of read and I still don't know if the UD5 can properlly handle a 6Gbps SSD drive. My Vertex 2 just keeps on crashing after 5 min even with the lastest firmware, it's strange after its been flawless for 12 months.

So im looking at purchasing another drive but I'm stumped as to what the board can handle.

Any help would be appreciated as need to get the machine back and running ASAP.

cheers

The UD5 can handle any SSD out there. Even with the very latest SSD you will not saturate the SATA 6 Gbs.

Appreciate the fast reply!

So I'm looking at the Crucial M4 C400 60gig for the OS drive, plug that into the Gsata3 6 or 7 ports then when I get my Vertex 2 back I'll just put that back into the blue port?

cheers

Should I use the Marvel Console drivers on this board with the Crucial M4 which uses a Marvel controller?

If I remember correctly the Intel ports are still faster.

Hi again,

I just found the opportunity to change the connection of my drives to my X58a-UD7 rev 1
SSD remains in SataII_0
Barracuda XT 2Tb Sata3 is moved from marvell to SataII_2
My 2 DvdRWs are now in SataII_4 and 5

Please note that I have AHCI enabled in Sata II ports for the trim to work with my Intel G2 ssd, which makes my Barracuda XT sata3 drive also to work in AHCI mode!

I just ran HD Tune in the Barracuda drive and the comparison between the Marvell Sata3 / IDE configuration in oposition to Sata2 / Ahci configuration gives almost same performance numbers EXCEPT the Burst Rate that has a substantial loss in Sata 2 / AHCI mode.

It dropped from 257.3 mb/s to 172.5 mb/s!

Is this due to the change from sata 3 to sata 2 controller or due to the change from IDE to AHCI mode? Is this an actual performance loss or just theoretical?

Thanks A LOT!
My System

There are 3 PWM headers but only 2 of them actually work as PWM, there was never a bios released that addressed the use of the third.
I use Speenfan to control 2 fans on my bottom rad.

I use the CPU header and the SYS_FAN_2 header.
In speedfan you will need to click on Configure and then open the Advanced tab.
Once on the Advanced tab use the drop down box to select the Chip IT87020F and select to place the 3 PWM headers in Software controlled mode.

Then click ok to confirm you changes. Then once again click configure and then fan control tab to Add fans and associate them to Pwm headers and system temps.
