#151 ASRock FM2A85A Extreme4: Problems with AMD RAID Controller DEV_7803 by Spioszek 21.12.2013 16:10

Hi Fernando, I have ASRock FM2A85X Extreme4
Bios uploaded to the plate 1.70 (latest from Asrock)

My version of RAID ROM 3.3.1540.17 Utily
Driver for Windows 7 uploaded version 3.3.1540.40 (AMD AHCI COMPATIBLE RAID)


My question: can I upload a new version of the BIOS RAID ROM?
If so, how do I upload

I have a very poor speed 4KB of program AS-SSD Benchmark if I drive 1xSSD Vector OCZ 128GB in RAID mode.

I have 3x HDD configurations (RAID 0), and 1xSSD OCZ for AHCI

If you are connecting only the OCZ drive and BIOS settings AHCI mode the speed is very very good.
If the settings in the BIOS RAID mode for 3 HDDs, the speed of my one SSD decreases rapidly: (

So your BIOS is rather actual.

I haven't yet seen a newer AMD RAID ROM module for the DEV_7803 AMD SATA RAID Controller.
Furthermore I doubt, that an update of the AMD RAID ROM module will solve your problem.

If I understood the specifications of your mainboard correctly, you have to decide: Either you want a very fast OS (then you should run the AMD SATA Controller in AHCI mode) or very performant HDDs (running as RAID0 array).
The best solution would be a mainboard with 2 different SATA Controllers. Then you would be able to run the SSD in AHCI mode and the HDDs as RAID0 array.
Alternatively you can buy a second SSD and combine both SSDs to a second RAID0 array.

Off-topic: Since your problem has nothing to do with "Silicon Image RAID ROM modules", I have renamed your post title.

So in my controller, I can not be simultaneously in AHCI SSD and HDD in RAID0: (?

If I give in BIOS AHCI mode in Windows 7 that I could (a software to create a RAID0 with HDD)?

Since I don't have your mainboard, I only can guess the answer.
When you enter the BIOS, can you set the SATA mode (AJCI/RAID/IDE) individually for each AMD SATA port resp. for a pair of them or is there just 1 single option to set the SATA mode?

Although I don't have any own experience with a Windows "Software RAID", this may be possible.

Unfortunately mode IDE / AHCI or RAID I can only choose only one, and affects all ports.
I even tried to give the SSD to the last port (port7), but it's not solve: (

Maybe tomorrow I'll see the RAID created with Win7 it can be worked.
Do you think the Samsung SSD 830Evo make it good? I read that he has the kind of your TRIM

AFAIK there s no Samsung 830 EVO available. So I suspect, that you have either a Samsung 830 or a Samsung 840 EVO.
By the way: All SSDs running in AHCI mode do support the TRIM command, if you are using an actual Windows OS and an appropriate AHCI driver.
The Samsung 840 EVO supports the RAPID Mode to get enhanced performance by using a part of the memory as data chache.

@ Fuxxer:

Welcome at Win-RAID Forum and thanks for the new AMD RAID ROM Version.
As soon as I am back home, I will add it to the start post.

Merry Christmas!

Hi Fernando,

I was wondering if updating my AHCI Rom on my EVGA X58 board is a good idea going from 1.07.10 to 1.20E? I found the old ahci rom file under 'BIOSF2' listing in CBROM. It weighs 19kb where the new one is at 16kb which is 3kb less. This has me worried that there is 3kb file size discrepency. Was wondering if you could share some insights please?

Thank you.

@ davidm71:

If you are running your SSD/HDD in AHCI mode, you should update the Intel AHCI Rom module to v1.20E. The reduced size is nothing to worry about.

Merry Christmas!
Fernando

I played it safe and waited to hear from the EVGA raid rom forum and the response was that that rom is not compatible with Award Pheonix Bios.
So I guess I'm not going to update to the 1.20E until I hear otherwise.

Thank you.

Happy Holidays to you too!

Thanks for the info.
Meanwhile I have added the Intel RAID ROM v13.1.0.2030 to the start post of this thread.

Now I am searching for the related Intel EFI SataDriver v13.1.0.2030 named SataDriver.ffs.
Does anyone have a link?
