    DH77KC Mobo and PCI-e 2.0 x4 SSD

    Chris Heimlich

      Hello,

               I am planning overhaul my PC soon and am planning to buy a PCI-e 2.0 x4 SSD. In terms of all other factors I determined that the DH77KC board was the best for me. However, from researching I discovered 2 potential problems.

       

      1. The motherboard/BIOS needs to support booting from PCI-e

      2. There is a problem with many motherboards in which PCI-e SSD cannot be used while the SATA controller is set to RAID mode because there is not enough memory in the ROM.

       

      I am planning to have the PCI-e SSD as my boot drive and have a normal hard drive RAID array as my partition for games so I would like to use the SSD and RAID at the same time.

       

      So what I would like to know (if anybody knows) is whether:

      A. The DH77KC supports booting from PCI-e

      and

      B. Whether the DH77KC's on-board SATA controller will be able to support RAID mode and the PCI-e SSD at the same time

       

      Even if you are not sure but have a good guess at either question, any help is appreciated.

       

      Thank you.
