    It's been a pretty good time since I ran RAID drives and recently I have not been having any luck.

    I have the RAID function on in Bios and I have already set the drives to a Raid Array in 0.

    Now my problem comes when I am trying to install Windows 7 X64.

    It obviously will ask me for the drivers but when it does and I search for it, it only see's x86 drivers and nothing on the X64 bit folder on my flash drive.

    I checked the flash drive and I know its in there, and I downloaded it directly from the AsRock Driver Downloads folder for my board.

    I am wondering if maybe I'm doing something wrong, or if maybe there are other drivers i should be using.

    Setting in bios:
    SATA Controller - enabled
    SATA Mode - RAID Mode
    Onboard Raid 3TB+ Unlocker - Legacy ROM
    SATA IDE Combined Mode- Enabled

    Update:
    Ok I got the raid going, I installed the X86 drivers because it doesn't say I have any compatible drivers and then the OS begins to load.

    Once it's done, it reboots and normally asks for your username and the basic setups, but in my case I get a BSOD, and it's so face it's impossible to see what it might be dumping.

    Well because of this you got a badass SSD now and the rig is flying! Glad you got it fixed man! Guess your drives were just old or something. Beats me, we tried just about everything.

    Yes, I'm assuming they were just not compatible with the OS or something, whatever it was, I don't even care to find out anymore cause this SSD is rocking man! :rockout:

    I still managed to get them into RAID 0 though and they are running perfect now, but as secondary, no OS.

    I boot windows so fast bro, amazing man, I gotta bench the SSD and find out it's current R/W times.

    to theoneandonlymrk:

    I just started playing around with it. It seems fairly easy even though I feel as the BIOS was a little odd when using the 1.0 version so I updated to 1.20 and it does seem better.

    I had it running a few games today at 3.8 GHz.

    Just bumped the multiplier now at it's running fine at 4.0 GHz with the same voltage (1.4v).

    Gonna run Prime in a bit and see what happens. :pimp:

    Might need a bit more vcore for 4GHz, but we'll see. Use THIS to bench the SSD. :)
