Okay, well nevermind my CMT6GX3M3A2000C8 (which is on the QVL) went with 2x2 sticks for 4GBs at stock 2000MHz. I'm in the UEFI now. Thinking I should change the frequency to 1066? Not sure what I need to change in here to get mine to work. Think i'll be able to get my 4Gb sticks to work for 16GBs?

Intel SSD and AHCI driver fix

I ended up selecting Update Driver for the SATA driver listed in the Device Manager. I used the option to search the computer for drivers and the Microsoft one popped up along with the AMD driver. The Microsoft driver should be listed as something like mahci. I just selected that and restarted the system. Good luck!
When I ask for a driver update it tells me that the best driver software for your device is already installed. The driver provider is AMD, the driver date is 3/4/2011 and the driver version is 1.2.1.292. I do not get the second choice of choosing a Microsoft driver. Do you have any ideas of where else to find it.

I am using the original beta BIOS and have not flashed the 0506 version.
I have been all over the net on this one, because on my Crosshair V Board my single SSD is mistakenly classified as RAID Configured.

I can also assure you that after a week of pursuing this "issue", I know more than most people/technicians, etc.

And nobody knows anything for sure! If I printed as support all that I have learned as to why this is a controller problem on the V board but not on the IV board, I would only waste space. And no conclusion could be drawn. And ASUS won't answer me.

("No, it must be a Microsoft controller"; "Nah, it's an ASUS controller"; "it's not really the ASUS AHCI driver... it's AMD's. Intel's storage drivers will not work on that controller."

What it all boils down to, guys, is Magic and Witchcraft! Nobody Knows Nothing!

If I do learn anything (not somebody thinks ...) that works, and I have tested it, I will post it in the most literate and sober of fashions.

Geek, I'm sorry your having these problems. I wish I had a solution for this. It appears to just be Intel SSD related? My new Crucial M4 SSD is setup with just Windows installed and few programs. At the time of installation it was just the lone M4 SSD in the system and it defaulted to AHCI mode - on SATA 1. I then rebooted, installed my HDD for all other programs on SATA 2, and took a quick look in BIOS - both drives were ACHI still. Driver is Windows 6.1.7600.16385 for both drives. SATA Controller drivers are AMD 1.2.1.292 and Asmedia 1.2.2.0. I wish I could help.

Actually, you have helped - as always. Thanks.

All I can do right now is gather more and more information, and then test everything, document results and in so doing learn something that actually works and is not just patchwork.

The problem is there are so many variables it's hard to lay blame. And laying blame is not at all productive.

I think you make good sense in saying the SATA Controller is AMD. What makes me feel more and more secure in my knowledge, before I test (and that is a huge time-consuming process as you well know) is hearing the same thing said again and again.

Odd thing is I'm well beyond sure that most users are completely oblivious to the problem, i.e. that their single SSD set up on SATA #1 with AHCI is classified as RAID Configured. Only reason I am aware of this is that certain features of the Intel SSD Toolbox will not work as a result.

There are many times that I really wished I did not have such a mind for detail. Sometimes ignorance can be bliss - or so it seems.

/\\/\\ Hmmm. That's strange that it didn't give you the option to install the microsoft driver. It should be there. I'm not at my desktop right now, but I'll check over the weekend and see if I can't re-trace my steps a bit better as to how I switched the driver. My understanding is that the AMD driver doesn't do TRIM. Supposedly only the Microsoft and Intel drivers will work. Have you looked into installing the Intel driver?

One other thought? Have you tried posting over on the ASUS ROG forums? The Asus guy over there, Raja, seems to be pretty knowledgeable and helpful.

As far as I know, and maybe this is not correct, but a RAID array will always show up as 1 drive. If you have a RAID 1 (mirrored) then the drive will show up as the size of the individual drive. If they are in RAID 0 (stripe) they will show up as the capacity of the drives combined.

- So if I add another drive, which I did, if it was in RAID mode it would only show up as 1 drive, but it doesn't, it shows up as two individual drives. So are you saying that it was in RAID mode, then when I added the other drive it somehow switched to true ACHI mode for both drives? This is just me thinking here - still trying to help

Geek, just to clarify - and I could probably scroll back through 100s of posts to find this answer, but I also want to make sure the situation is on what you are currently running. You are running a single SSD for Windows. Intel Toolbox is telling you this is RAID configured. Are you running any other drives? And what mode do you want them in. I'm sorry just clarify for me exactly what you want to do.

Might be in reference to the Q LED lights, not sure.
Here is the exact screen I get when I start my computer, it takes about 3 seconds and as far as I am concerned, gives me no relevant info that I need. Anyway to disable it?
