Im just referring to most of the P5Q series as not working past 10.5 somewhere along the line it lost compatibility, I dont know about P5Q3 Deluxe.

Hmm, are we talking about the same thing here? I'm referring to BIOS Firmware Mods where you can replace the RAID ROM in the firmware update with a newer version. This is separate to the OS level drivers for the RAID...

You asked what is the newest raid rom for P5Q was, all the information is there you need in the link I provided.

I apologize, I'm telling you about the wrong thing. doh.gif I wasn't aware you could update the firmware in that manner, I was just talking about OS level things.

Just follow Dillmiester's posts, I don't know anything about the firmware side of things. redface.gif

Sorry, Dillmiester, that wasn't directed at you, looks like jetpak12 thought I was talking about OS level drivers smile.gif

Anyway, thanks for your info. I've found a few RAID ROMs, but from what I'm reading online v10.1.0.1008 is the latest that will work with P5Q (as you alluded to in your post), but I can't find that version anywhere. Do you have any ideas where I could source this?

EDIT: Ah, I think I found it here: http://forums.mydigitallife.info/archive/index.php/t-961-p-4.html

I assume I can just extract the Intel RAID ROM from these other BIOS firmware updates & inject it into the P5Q Pro BIOS firmware with MMTool successfully?

Better link to extracted OROM here: http://win-lite.de/benutzer/fernando/ROM-Module/Intel_RST_RAID_ROM_v10.1.0.1008.rar

Hi all

Sorry for the rude interruption but I'm after some advice.

I've been given an asus p5q pro board with a quad core 2.4GHz CPU. It also has 2x 1gb corsair sticks of ram running at 675 MHz. I haven't touched anything in the bios and I'm running windows 7 ultimate 64-bit (fresh install).

My questions is this. I have a 500gb SATA WD drive and 2x identical 250GB SATA WD drives. What you recommend me set it up as. I've not done much with raid before as my last system was an Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe running a 3.2GHz Barton.

I've read something about drive Xpert and wonderd if it was worth doing. I would love to have the full 1TB system but I am also one for wanting to have a back up of important documents. But also for have a great deal of cash at the moment for upgrading or if a drive fails.

Advice please.

Hi Nismolilly! Welcome to OCN and Welcome aboard! wave2.gif

 

A RAID setup isn't a good way for backing up files. You should backup important files by making copies of them from time to time to another storage drive/medium. wink.gif

 

RAID setup could help improve system performance... I would rather get a reliable SSD like from Intel or get 2 WD Cavier Black HDDs and set to run in RAID. thumb.gif

 

I've set the SATA ports on my PRO Turbo to run in Normal mode. biggrin.gif

 

Happy overclocking! cheers.gif

Hi Mate thanks for the quick response. I would live a SSD but money is tight at the min. I've just order some thermal paste and searching for a good but well priced heat sink and fan (Any suggestions?).

So you would recommend havin all three drives in normal mode. I like to keep a back up of my iTunes folder, Downloaded setup files for program's, and pictures. I do have a 500gb external drive which I could use for this but it is nearly full with the above files.

Hi

I can't seem to be able to connect my sata drives. All three detect on there own but as soon as try and connect two drives it won't detect either. I've tried all ports and swapping the cables but I just can't get it to recognise more than one drive at a time. I haven't change buying in the bios. I've got a 480w PSU. Help please I'm going insaine.

Hello Nismolilly, welcome to the club. cheers.gif

Like ocman said, any kind of RAID setup isn't a substitute for real backup, but if you need space you can set up a RAID 0, which spans two disks and essentially turns them into one. Or you can use RAID 1, which is for redundancy: two identical drives are run simultaneously and if one drive dies, or is removed, the data is still fine in the other drive. In RAID 0, if one drive is removed, you lose all data.

And as for your drive detection problem, are you having trouble having the drives detected in BIOS, or somewhere later down the line? I would normally recommend swapping drives/ports/cables, but it seems like you've already done that. A 480W should be fine for powering a few drives, but what else do you have in your system, maybe its close to its limit?
