raid 10 vroc

I have a Z590 Gigabyte Aorus Pro vs. 1 Motherboard and have 4 intel 670p m.2 drives installed. The first three are connected to the CPU and are now running in Raid 5. The fourth M.2 slot is connected via the PCIE.  Would  a VROC key (which one) allow me to run the four drives in raid 10?

Hello, enm0012.


Good day,


Thank you for posting in the Intel VROC support forum.


I reviewed your case regarding RAID 10 in VROC using those particular drives, I will be glad to assist you.


The first thing you should do is confirm if your platform supports Intel VROC, and the one you mentioned, Z590 Gigabyte Aorus Pro, does not list support for this technology, but it works with Intel Rapid Storage Technology (18.2 and 18.31 versions), according to what I found in their site, so let me know if this is not correct:

- https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/Z590-AORUS-PRO-AX-rev-10#kf


Additionally, the drive model you are using (670p) is not supported/validated by us for VROC configurations, you can check our VROC supported configuration guides for details depending on the VROC version, for example, the drives, OS and other variables supported, of course, if you your platform supports it in the first place:

- https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000030310/memory-and-storage/ssd-software.h...


Regarding your fourth drive, it is possible that this M.2 port cannot be used for any type of NVMe RAID configurations by Intel RST as it is managed separately from the other three, you will need to check with the motherboard manufacturer if this is correct or if there is additional configuration required in UEFI/BIOS.


I will follow up on September 14th in case you have any other questions.


Best regards,

Hello, enm0012.


This post is to follow up on you thread regarding VROC.


I previously shared that your system does not seem to be VROC ready/compatible according to the motherboard specifications, and that using your fourth drive for RAID configurations may not be supported, but this is something that you must check with the motherboard manufacturer.


The thread will be closed right now since there has been no confirmation or other questions, but please open a new one or contact us via any of the available support methods if Intel's assistance is still required: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/contact-support.html
