    Problem with Intel Optane Memory (32GB)


      I have an Intel Optane Memory of 32 GB (it was already installed on my motherboard ( Z370 Aorus Gaming 7-OP), a Samsung SSD 970 Pro NVMe M.2 512 GB and a WD Black 2TB SATA3 7200rpm. I have the OS on the M.2 and I would like to accelerate my HDD which I use for games. I have installed Windows 10 in UEFI and SATA Mode Selection in AHCI instead of Intel RST Premium With Intel Optane Acceleration. Because I have readed that Intel RST is used for RAIDs. The problem appears when I try to activate Intel Optane, when I try to activate with SetUpOptaneMemory I get an error that says: The Intel Optane memory is not compatible with the system installed in the PCI Express (PCIe). I have read that Intel Optane can accelerate Secondary/Sata Drive, should I change the SATA Mode Selection to Intel RST Premium With Intel Optane Acceleration or this mode is only for RAIDs?


      My CPU is an Intel Core i7 8700k 3.7GHz and my OS is Windows 10 Home 64bits.
