      In your opinion without any limit of velocity for ssd and a good GPU ???
      The speed of your PCIe connected devices is limited by your chipset, but I am sure, that you will realize a performance boost, if you compare it with your current system.

      I think it's more correct to say that this is handled by the CPU and the chipset. On a 8 series (eg. Z87) motherboard it (normally) goes like this: 16 PCIe 3.0 lanes go straight to the PCIe slots. Another 8 lanes are provided by the PCH and only have PCIe 2.0 connectivity.

    • Seems correct

      HowTo extract Samsung's NVM Express 2.x Driver:
      - Download WiX Toolset (only the binaries)
      - CMD: dark nvme.exe -x C:\SamsungNVMe

      Was für eine schwere Geburt ^^

      This was written by Microsoft (not by the OFA) and is only valid for two drivers that come with the Windows ADK ;)

      Regarding "build the driver from source": Since the driver is open source it should be possible to build it with Visual Studio 2017 and then sign it correctly. My SSD just came some hours ago. Since i have to install Windows i could give it a try. Hopyfully i have time for this... would be interesting.

      The last sentence was just for all Samsung users out there :D

    • Interesting. Thanks for clarification! Is there any difference in running RAID vs. AHCI mode? Maybe some benefits regarding data integrity, performance, features, etc.? Never used my drives in RAID mode...

      My hope was that your modded Intel drivers could fix this problem and I won't need my selfmade script with "Devcon Rescan" any longer to activate my USB devices under Windows. So I installed your certificates and your drivers and rebooted. But unfortunately, the mouse and the keyboard were not activated for the boot manager nor for the Windows desktop or by my script with "DevCon Rescan".

      With a PS/2 keyboard I opened the device manager and found there 3 of your devices properly installed and activated but the USB mouse and keyboard were still not working. I've reverted to the previous installed Microsoft drivers then and the USB devices were activated immediately without a reboot. What can I do to solve this problem?

      Seems like a problem with your system not with the drivers. Try reverting to the stock drivers that come with Windows. If that doesn't help i would suggest it's a wrong BIOS setting?

      Windows 10 from RS1 up is different when it comes to signed drivers. First you have to understand one big difference: There are "User Mode" (UMD) and "Kernel Mode" (KMD) drivers. UMDs could be signed all by yourself and will even work with SecureBoot enabled. Since RS1 Microsoft changed how Windows behaves when it comes to KMDs (which is only true for fresh installs.. but thats another point^^). Before RS1 it was possible to use self-signed KMDs with SecureBoot enabled.
      Microsoft themself really fucked up bad with 1703 (RS2) and so it's not even possible to use the latest Windows ADK with SecureBoot enabled!

      Known issues for the ADK

      ADK Drivers donít install on systems with secure boot enabled
      Drivers on the ADK Deployment tools will not install on systems with Secure Boot (SB) enabled. To work around the issue, disable SB on these systems.
      This only impacts systems with Secure Boot enabled.

      Source: Hardware development kits for Windows 10, Version 1703 (April 2017)

      So maybe there are two possible solutions:
      - Disable SecureBoot
      - Sign the drivers via a Microsoft cross signing certificate or import your own certificate into SecureBoot

      I would recommend to build the driver from source just to be sure that nothing gets fucked up in the first place, sign it and then either disable SecureBoot or import the cert into SecureBoot.

      If you have a Samsung SSD installed i would suggest to always use their driver since it probably will handle some things specific to their SSDs better than the standard Microsoft or OFA driver.

      Nearly all mainboard manufacturers protect their UEFI BIOSes against any modification and the protection is commonly layed down within the capsule. All users, who open such BIOS by using a tool like UEFITool, will get a message like you.
      That is why you cannot flash a modded BIOS by using the "normal" flashing procedures. To circumvent the 'security verification failed' message, you have to flash the modded ASUS BIOS by using the USB Flashback method.
      Consider to get rid of the "BIOS Lock" via AMIBCP so you don't have to flash via "USB Flashback" each time. There are some tutorials on the interwebs on how to do this.

    • Just to be clear: So even if someone mods these drivers with other DEV_IDs they won't work with older chipsets?

    • e.v.o has written a new post "AMD and Nvidia GOP update (No requests, DIY)" 04.19.2017

      I'll just get an error if i want to use the tool:

      ***************** Drop VBIOS file on this .bat *****************

      Dumping info from = GK106.rom

      Der Befehl "C:\Program" ist entweder falsch geschrieben oder
      konnte nicht gefunden werden.
      No EFI ROM found or error on decompression !!!

      - If has nothing to do with the naming of the folder or where GOPupd is in.

      I have Phyton 3.6 installed. Maybe that's the reason for this. If i find the time i'll rewrite the Batch script as a simple PowerShell script that could be deployed as a .exe file. Also putting the GOPs and or the DB on GitHub would maybe a good idea?

    • e.v.o has written a new post "[QUESTION] What is THE Raid Controller?" 04.17.2017

      Zitat von wedok im Beitrag #1
      I'm looking for the best raid 1 controller which does the following:
      supports 2tb+ hdds
      allows smart checking (temperature) of disks in raid
      doesnt kill raid or data when acronis is used
      has absolutely 100% no dpc latency spikes
      works 100% stable without any crashes and bsods
      power consumption 1-4 watts
      does something like this exist? :)
      Normally they all support 2TB+ HDDs.
      SMART Support: Adaptec, LSI/Broadcom (which i prefer), Intel
      Acronis: Well.. use another software ^^
      DPC Spikes: I assume you are asking for a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation)... IF this really matters to you then get a SAS RAID controller and SAS drives. Another solution would be to use a huge amount of RAM (and a UPS). This spikes could also come from LAN, USB, etc. - AFAIK it is very important to configure your BIOS the right way (eg. disable legacy USB support) for low latencys.
      100% stable: yeah.. we all want that :D
      Power: why are you asking? Intel RAIDs use a maximum of 4,1 W. I don't know what other cards/chipsets need.

      I could be wrong in thinking, but the BIOS reports back as 0801 with a 2014 date not R4BE with a 2017 date

      Make a backup of your BIOS and check for the inserted module to be sure and report back.
