      I have an Asus Sabertooth Z87 motherboard that I'd like to have full NVMe support. If I were to use this BIOS mod, buy an M.2 to PCI-E X4 adapter card (i.e. Asus Hyper M.2 X4 Mini Card) and put a Samsung 960 EVO M.2 NVRe SSD that's rated for "Read Speeds up to 3200MB/s and Sequential Write Speeds up to 1900MB/s" in it, what speeds can I realistically expect on the Z87 using one of the PCIe 3.0 16X slots? I'm thinking considerably less than 3200 MB/s, correct? Before I invest in a lot of time and money, I just want to know if it will be worth it. Any others here have z87 chipsets and received dramatic results using this intriguing procedure?
      Buy it. I have the same board as mATX version. It is really worth the effort and the modding is done in 5 minutes.

      There is obviously not enough space available for additional EFI modules within the DXE Driver section of the BIOS.
      You should either ask the ASUS Support for a BIOS with more free space for EFI modules or remove a dispensable DXE Driver module. The latter option seems to be difficult, because I haven't seen the usual EFI LAN modules within your specific BIOS.
      I would try to delete the "FsIso9660" module (GUID: D5D52FED-F8A6-49AC-97AC-7291A60405A6) if you will never boot from CD/DVD. This will delete the filesystem driver for ISO 9660 (Wikipedia: ISO 9660).

      @ ALL

      There is a suggestion to remove all files and folders IRST (e) from the folder "Modules\IRST".
      Instead, leave only 2 empty folders "Modules\IRST" and "Modules\IRSTe", in which the user can put the file versions that are relevant to him.
      Thus, it will be possible to select the proper versions, and not what UBU offers,
      The IRST and IRSTe files will be in a separate archive.
      I think this will make it harder for some people but from my point of view it's the better solution. Maybe a link to this forum and the thread where one could download the corresponding EFI/ROM would be a good idea

    • UBU replaces the Haswell ULT (CPUID 40651) with the normal Haswell microcode (CPUID 306C3). Does this work? If not: Is it possible to expand UBU so that it works with Haswell ULT CPUs?

      I attached the latest Haswell ULT microcode.

    • Zitat von FirstEver im Beitrag #1982
      I can insert the NVMe module after last 'DXE driver' but it this cases the last 'PEI module' will be Rebuilded - is it ok?
      I think you are in the wrong section. Normally there is a DXE section and after that a PEI section...

      Zitat von Ferrous im Beitrag #69
      If the /GAN parameter doesn't work (shows success but actually makes no difference), Intel FPT should be the last choice.

      But FPT doesn't work when the SPI flash lock is enabled?

      Zitat von Ferrous im Beitrag #69
      Off topic:
      Zitat von Fernando im Beitrag #68
      Will you add a link to the latest AFU version, which supports the /GAN command?

      You used the relative clause wrongly.
      The comma before the relative pronoun which means that it is a non-restrictive(non-defining) relative clause. It should be a restrictive(defining) relative clause here, so the comma must be removed.
      The word latest is a superlative, in this case you should use that as the relative pronoun instead of which.
      So the correct version is:
      Will you add a link to the latest AFU version that supports the /GAN command?


      Great! You (and everyone else!) should do this more often... and you could also have a look at my posts cause i think they also have a few "errors" in them ;>

      Zitat von dmitryBz im Beitrag #65
      /gan option is unknown command.

      @dmitryBz Because you are using the wrong version. The /GAN option wasn't an official way to flash a modified BIOS and was removed in version 3.07.00 and up. The tutorial here isn't up to date. You will find a DOS executable with /GAN option attached.

      @Fernando
      Could you maybe update the start posting with my attached version which supports /GAN?

      @all
      Could someone provide the latest AFU version which has /GAN support? This was version 3.06.01.

    • e.v.o has written a new post "How to keep a Samsung M.2 SSD cool" 05.24.2017

      just my 2 cents:

      The shown m.2 cooling solution is crap in many ways and absolutely not necessary:
      - You don't need active cooling for a SSD. Passive cooling is enough for this kind of consumer SSDs (also for the 960 Pro).
      - The fan makes extra noise
      - The height is a problem: You can't use the next PCIe slot
      - The fan probably needs an extra cable for power which is a bit stupid when you are using a adapter card which could normally handle this

      I bought this adapter which has cooling included: https://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_inf...roducts_id=3659
      This solutions makes way more sense cause the back also gets cooled and you can still use the next PCIe slot. Since it sits above the GPU there is enough airflow to cool it.

      If you have a m.2 slot on your motherboard or have a adapter card then you should go with something like this: https://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_inf...roducts_id=3660

      SAY WHAT : I'm all ears how do I do this I also have this e5-2699 v3 what mods did you make to the microcode.

      You don't mod the microcode. Just use an old version and that's it.

    • Zitat von SOSKI_KROTA im Beitrag #1961
      I got Gigabyte p85-d3 motherboard and i want either one of those 2 ssds:

      https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a...N82E16820249085
      https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a...=9SIA4S857X3214

      They differ mainly in form factor: one is m.2 2280 and the other is AIC

      The AIC one is PCIe x4 (which i have on my motherboard) so i would rather buy AIC so i don't need to buy an adapter. Does it matter in this case?
      Which should i buy?

      Got one more question: does success rate of this manupulation really justify the risk of buying hardware you prolly can't use?


      It would be good if you inform yourself (and i am not talking about asking questions on forums) about the whole topic. But back to your questions:
      It doesn't matter which one you buy but i would go with a Samsung 960 Evo or it's OEM counterpart the Samsung PM961 plus a m.2 > PCIe adapter: Better performance and bang for the buck. But if you really wanna get the Plextor then stick to the m.2 plus a adapter: If you every get e newer system you could simply just swap the SSD in it or use it in a laptop.

      If really does justify the risk of buying. But this is something you have to answer yourself before buying.

    • @SoniX
      Well.. i have to thank you for UBU and your work! If i can help you in any way then please let me know :)

    • Zitat von Fernando im Beitrag #2962
      @e.v.o:
      Although it obviously was your intention to help
      a) the Forum visitors, who are always waiting for an updated UBU version, and
      b) SoniX, who has written, that he doesn't have the required time to create a new UBU tool version,
      I am not sure, whether it was a good idea to offer a v1.67 of SoniX's UBU tool.
      Did you get his ok, before you published the new version?
      If not, you should remove your links.
      I want to avoid everything, what may end with SoniX's "good-bye" to our Forum.
      I am sorry! I would not harm anyone! Just read he didn't had the time so i thought i could do it and help him. It is his tool and will always be. But i am removing it since i didn't get his ok.

    • Fixed.

    • I updated UBU to version 1.67 to give something back. Thanks SoniX! I hope thats okay. I also changed the script to incorporate the updates. MMTool ist NOT included.
