  1. Hi guys As stated in the review: This switch illuminates LEDs to show the proper PCIe slots to use. Its position has no effect if the the PCIe slots are enabled or disabled.
  2. Hello The OCZ Bootable Tools will update the Vertex 3 and the Bootable Tool iso is a bootable image. Rufus works well for prepping the USB stick. There are also detailed instruction linked below for doing this as well as setting up the needed network connection. http://www.oczforum.com/forum/showthread.php?112816-PC-BOOTABLE-TOOLBOX-This-Tool-updates-firmware&p=794820&viewfull=1#post794820

    Guys, as I'm sure you can undersatand we are limited as to what we can discuse at the moment. However any warranty or support issues will continue to be handled in the expedite manner they have always been. Below is from the OCZ offices. Thanks for understanding.
  4. Most of the commonly available ASMedia SATA controllers connect to the system using a single PCIe lane. This configuration doesn't allow sufficient bandwidth for one SATA 6Gb/s SSD much less two or more in RAID.
  5. Leave the controller set to RAID. The drive, if it is not part of an array, will be treated the same as if the controller was set to AHCI mode.
  6. Sorry that you are disappointed with your purchase of the RevoDrive 3. The specifications and marketing material lists Win7 as the only operating system supported for the drive. The enterprise family of drives based on the same technology support a wide range of operating systems and versions. OCZ works one on one with their enterprise customers to ensure the product works in the intended environment for which the drives are purchased. This includes drivers for operating systems over and above those listed at OCZ.com for public download.
  7. 1T is tough with 32GB at low voltage. The performance difference is negligible anyway.
  8. Using the OCZ Bootable Tools there would be no need to destroy the data on the array. Set to AHCI mode, flash the drives and set back to RAID. Looks involved but is only 10 minutes start to finish including downloading and prepping the USB stick. http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/forum/showthread.php?99275-NEW!-Bootable-tools-for-OCZ-SSD-s
  9. Why not buy some ram that will do the wanted speed without the increase in volts. Set ram voltage for the screenshot below is 1.55V. It is also available in 2x4GB kits.
  10. Most motherboards using the Marvell SATA 6Gb/s controllers do so from the 912x family chipset. The 912x series uses a single PCIe 2.0 lane to interface with the motherboard. A single PCIe 2.0 lane cannot physically provide the necessary bandwidth required to max out the SATA 6Gb/s interface. The Marvell 9182 chipset used on some high end motherboards uses two PCIe 2.0 lanes and can come close to the performance achievable with the Intel native 6Gb/s posts. As far as the game load YouTube videos I'm pretty sure those were done using an ASRock x79 board and the native Intel SATA 6Gb/s ports. I can get the system configuration form the person that made the videos if this information is wanted.
  11. MJCRO Go to the ROG forum using the link below. Make a post to Mason. His user name is [email protected] Explain you problem attempting the RMA and that I suggested you contact him directly. He will get it sorted out for you. http://www.asusrog.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?71-ASUS-Republic-of-gamers-Warranty-RMA
  12. I haven't had any issues with dual or triple 570 SLI or dual 580 cards so you should be OK.
  13. Post code AA is the normal display once booted into the operating system. Nothing there to fix.
  14. I would use an Inilinx based drive with a Mac such as the Vertex 1. Macs and SSDs are trouble in general.
