Hey guys, having a weird issue I can't seem to fix, hoping you can help.

Everything with my machine has been running great for one year, until I upgraded to the 2105 bios 2 months ago. I now have this intermittent problem during boot up with my RAID 0 array failing. Now I know you all are going to call me crazy, but I have 4 x 60GB Vertex 2 SSDs in Raid 0, lol, don't worry, everything gets backed up everyday!

20-30% of the time during boot up or restarts, the raid array fails to initialize. I need to press ctrl+i, enter the Intel Raid Utility, refresh the main screen once or twice until PORT 1 is recognized with a disk, then I can exit and it boots up just fine. 70% of the time I don't have this issue. Every time it fails, its always 1 out of the 4 drives connected to PORT 1 . The Intel Raid Utility will only see drives on ports 0,3,4. Like i stated above, I then need enter the utility, refresh the main screen until PORT 1 shows up again, exit and boots up just fine. I run ATTO tests and benchmarks on the array in Windows and everything seems A OK. The Intel Rapid Storage App in Windows currently displays the array as active and healthy with all the details for the 4 SSDs.

This problem is so intermittent, 30% of the time, its difficult for me to trouble shoot using different cables and drives connected to different ports. I'm hoping you all could help me on where to start trouble shooting? Is this an issue that has come up before? Or is this the death throws of failing SSD hardware? This only started happening 2 months ago when I upgraded from the 1204 BIOS to the 2105 BIOS, leading me to think it maybe related. At the time of the upgrade, I also updated all the drivers found on the ASUS support downloads page for this motherboard. My BIOS settings are pretty much default, except for disabling on board sound and the Marvel Raid controller. Anything to guide me in the right direction to solving this issue will be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks much!

Hey Guys,

Can anybody enlighten me on whether or not this board will fit a case that supports up to ATX form factor boards?

The reason why I ask is that generally speaking, an E-ATX board such as this one should be 12x 13 in (305 x 330 mm).
However, according to the specs, this board is 12 x 10.6in (305 x 269mm). It turns out to be only 1" larger than a standard atx board (12 in (305 mm) x 9.6 in (244 mm)

Ideally I would like to know if this will fit in an Antec 900.

Thanks

Dual GPU or even Triple GPU?

It does make the GPUs more stable if you plug that two molex... Especially when you're overclocking the GPUs hard.

Hi All,

This is my first time on this board. I am having an issue with an SLI and running three monitors. I purchased two EVGA 560 TI video cards. One to run my main screen (32 inch) and the other to run my two side monitors (20 inch). I set up the two video cards correctly and the system recognizes them. However the 3 way sli bridge that came with the mobo cannot physically fit them. Do you have any suggestions as to how to SLI them together. With out the SLI I was having serious performance issues, such as the mouse getting stuck on a certain screen. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions you may have for me.

Thanks,

Liz

Just got mine installed today! Looks great, buuuut,,, No USB devices are recognized in windows. No keyboard, no mouse, nothing. Therefore I am unable to install the USB drivers in windows. Keyboard and mouse work fine in UEFI BIOS. Updated to the latest BIOS, no change. Reinstalling windows now. Hope that fixes it. Anyone had this problem?
