Over on the Intel forum I met a tech who was a software engineer for Lucent: http://communities.intel.com/people/parsec

Here is what he said - very clear and very no-nonsense definitive:

Quote:
It's very simple, you have an AMD CPU mother board, and that board will have an AMD chipset that supports that CPU. On your board, that is the 990FX chipset. On Intel CPU boards, there will be Intel chipsets. Intel chipset drivers will not work on AMD chipsets, and vice versa. Microsoft's msahci driver is capable of working on both chipsets, but the installation program of an AMD or Intel chipset driver will fail and stop when it does not find a compatible chipset. ASUS has no control over that. The drivers they "provide" are sourced from AMD or Intel, etc, ASUS does not write driver software.

If you can get the Intel SSD Toolbox to run on an AMD chipset mother board, you are very lucky. Using the msahci driver is not bad advice in general, but whether or not it performs as well as the AMD driver I do not know.

This thing with the AMD driver seeing your 510 as being a RAID configured SSD is strange. There are a few SSDs that actually are two SSDs in RAID 0 in one box, but not the Intel 510, or any Intel SSD. That sounds like a bug in the AMD SATA driver or BIOS. Is this something new with the 990FX chipset, or have users seen this happen with other AMD boards/chipsets? Did you check the AMD forums for any info on this?
My other question:

Quote:
While a simple check of the Win 7 Registry and via Command Line can confirm that TRIM is enable, prefetch and superfetch disabled, etc., how the heck is anyone really to know if TRIM is actually being carried out?
And Parsec's response:

Quote:
Your question about knowing if TRIM is actually occurring is a good one. I have never heard of a method of monitoring that, and if there was one it would be common knowledge in forums, etc.

ALUCARDVPR, please feel free to weigh in here.

What I don't want to do is encounter this problem down the road (soon I hope) when I replace my 6-core AMD on my Crosshair V board with Bulldozer.

So now that it makes sense that we use AMD SATA (AHCI and RAID) drivers, the question is which one is optimal for the long run.

AMD 1.2.1.292 (ALUCARDVPR's recommendation) VERSUS what I found at http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...d_windows.aspx

What we have here, guys, is a mini-version of the Gong Show for drivers.

I know what you mean I was just poking fun. I've done that in a couple of other threads and was amazed at how some people freaked out about me not going through a ridiculous amount of pages to find an answer instead of out right asking.

Stupid question time!!! Will any (reasonable) game push my graphics card as much as the maxed out heaven benchmark? Some people have also said that this would be botlenecked by my cpu?

Well... I have used Heaven benchmark and I have yet to find a game (and I max them out) that would push my GPU as much as Heaven does... But I did not stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night so lets see if someone else chimes in on this and agrees with me.

Usually though, benchmarking tools have a tendency to push harder and farther than normal applications do.

I still need to know what your setup looks like, believe it or not that's going to determine which AMD driver will work best for you in the long run. Are you going to run the Intel SDD by itself or do you have other drives in the mix - if so, do you want the other drives in RAID or everything in ACHI?

I will be doing something very special when this club reaches 100 members. At this point it could be cookies, not sure. I'm thinking of giving a prize away to 1 member - pulled from the member list randomly (ok, there is no such thing as a true random number generator - so let's call it pseudo-random).

What do you guys think?
