I9 7900X + VROCISSDMOD + 4x280GB 900P in RAID0 results

Pretty much as I had hoped for.

System is blistering fast and DOES NOT RUN HOT.

System has 16 fans overall and is not loud.

System clocked at 4.7 GHz.

Follow instructions from MB mfr. to enable UEFI only.

Use a 4x M.2 NVME AIC from Asus or Asrock,

go in UEFI and enable bifurcation in slot used or above 4 x M.2 NVME drives.

Set the PCIe slot to x4x4x4x4 if using 4 drives.

A couple of things I noticed when loading the system that were never mentioned elsewhere.

If loading Windows 10 from USB, in the UEFI choose USB labeled UEFI as first boot.

One labeled USB Partition1 and one labeled UEFI. Choose UEFI.

PAY ATTENTION TO THE ABOVE LINE AND SAVE MANY FRUSTRATING HOURS.

When loading OS from USB, and it wants to install, and you are using the 4xM.2 card,

load the "F6 floppy" driver from a separate USB drive.

For me, the Windows 8/8.1/10 driver did not work. At all.

I had to use the Win 7 64 bit driver.

Before first reboot after install, be sure to remove ALL USB drives from PC.

Load INF

Load Intel management engine and remaining drivers.

Have fun.

I did. Results enclosed.

Cheers

i should have been more specific on loading raid driver. Load the iRSTE (enterprise) floppy driver for VROC. As mentioned, for me, the Win 8/8.1/10 driver did not work but the Win 7 driver did.

Although the benchmarks are great,

I am experiencing long (23 seconds) and erratic (sometimes endless boot circle) boot times.

With one 900P the system boots in 5 seconds if that, and boots every time.

I do have an open support ticket, but have not heard anything for about a week.

One culprit was the latest Nvidia driver, but it still persists.

Any ideas?
