    AHCI

    TomEmm

      Hi,

       

      I got a Gigabyte GA-Z170-Gaming K3 Motherboard.

      Almost all Intel drivers and that works fine, but!

      If i use the Intel AHCI driver for that board instead of the MS variant the whole Computer slows down to 20 %!!!!

      I don't find the reason for it.

       

      Who can help me out.

       

      Kind regards,

      Tom

          Hi Thank you very much for contacting the Intel® Chipsets communities. We will do our best to assist you with this scenario.

          In this case, what we recommend is to install the drivers provided by Gigabyte, since those drivers were customized by them to work with your specific platform. Please install the AHCI driver version 15.0.0.1039, you will find it under the SATA RAID/AHCI tab:

          Any further questions, please let me know.

          Regards,

            Hi AlbertoR,

             

            Yes that's the point, when i install that driver i got that all the drives still working but on 10% of the speed!

             

            So i don't know who is the blame, the latest version download from Intel give 20% speed!

            So i don't know what is happening here!!

             

            Kind regards,

            Tom

              Hi Thank you very much for providing those details.
               
              In this case, the fact that our driver is newer might be the reason why it works better, but since the driver provided by Gigabyte is not working properly, what we recommend to do next will be to get in contact directly with them to report this scenario so they can do further research on this matter and provide further technical or warranty assistance, maybe they can try to replicate this issue on their lab with the same board you are using:

              Any questions, please let me know.

                Hi Alberto R,

                 

                This i got as answer from Gigabyte:

                 

                THis could be a software interrupt, please unstall the driver first from the device manager, if the problem still there you should install the O.S. newly again.

                 

                Ok after doing this my PC would not start again and any repair of MS did not worked. So installed again Win !0 pro till the latest version.

                After that the same problem was there again! And the i did what i should do the first time

                Unplugged drive by drive and then after unplug my old OCZ vertex 2 the system stayed stable

                So that was the problem!!!

                So after 3 day of hardworking i got it all fixed!

                And also with the Intel 100 driver

                 

                Thanks for the suggestions.

                 

                Kind regards,

                Tom
