I have just purchased a new Intel Optane Memory H10 (500GB/32GB) and want to install it on my Asus Z370 Prime motherboard. When I set it in the computer, I can only see the 500Gb but not the 32Gb Cache part - both in BIOS and in Intel Optane Software.
I would like to know if anyone has an instruction in setting my BIOS. I have updated my BIOS and ASUS says it is optimized for Intel Optane Memory.
PS: I have with no problems had another Intel Optane Memory (m-series I think on the same motherboard)
Hi Leon - unfortunately it didn't work. Even as Asus has made a new BIOS update (so called "compatible with Memory Optane), I don't think it is for th H10 module (Cashe AND SSD). I have been working for more than 48 hours and 5 o'clock this morning, I gave up. I will return it to the vendor (I got permission before I bought it), and will instead find another good SSD.
- but thanks for your answer
My plan is:
Install a new Samsung SSD 970 EVO - 500GB and use it as my main harddisk with OS
1000 Gb SSD 860 SSD for my data
THEN I will install an elder HDD AND my Optane Memory (M-series) paired to the HDD. This I will use for testing different setups on VM's
I DO have a solution on how to install both systems on the same MB
PS Thanks for your answers
I got both my 16GB+256GB initially, and later my 32G+512GB H.10 units to function with my ASUS ROG Strix Z370-F motherboard.
It was a major headache to get them to play well with the various peccadillos of the OS, but once it worked, it was magical.
Tragically, in both cases, OS updates and driver issues 'broke' the connection between the Optane memory and the data, requiring costly manpower to rebuild.
