Hi

The below page are the drivers for the RMS3CC080

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/82029/Intel-Integrated-RAID-Module-RMS3CC080 Downloads for Intel® Integrated RAID Module RMS3CC080

The only driver that seems to have drivers on this page under Windows 10 are : https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26611/SAS-Hardware-RAID-Driver-for-Windows-?product=82029 Download SAS Hardware RAID Driver for Windows* which are version 6.713.05.00

So what are the Trimode drivers? (https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26922/RAID-Trimode-Driver-for-Windows-?product=82029 Download RAID Trimode Driver for Windows*) version 7.701.04.00 which says there compatible in the text document but when looking in the driver listing (trying to load them in to Windows 10) it doesnt list RMS3CC080 in there at all (so wont load).

Hello Ashley,

 

 

Thank you for contacting Intel(R) Technical Support.

 

I understand that you want to know what Intel(R) Tri-Mode stands for.

 

 

The Intel(R) Tri-Mode controllers include a SAS interface and Non-Volatile Memory express (NVMe) interface. Both share the same connectors by multiplexing the data and side-band signal. You can conform this information https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/server-products/raid-products/Tri_Mode_Modules_Hardware_User_Guide.pdf here. The Intel(R) RAID RMS3CC080 does not come with the Tri-Mode technology; you can only download the SAS Hardware RAID Driver for Windows* for your purposes.

 

 

Best regards,

So to confirm, the only driver for the RMS3CC080 is version 6.713.05.00 which is the SAS driver? (for Windows 10)

Many Thanks
