    Default asrock 990fx extreme4 Sata 3 raid 0 problem crucial m4

    Greetings

    Kinda stuck, cant figure out whats wrong. Brand new build had bios 1.3 upgraded to 1.5 numbers fairly similar. Write cache on. Finally found a updated copy of raidxpert thinking that maybe was my problem.

    Running raid 0 2x m4 crucials 128gb with rev 9 firmware. all sata ports on the asrock 990fx extreme4 at sata3


    any ideas appreciated was hoping to get close to the 1gb/per sec seeing as they are rated for MAX 500 read which I know is in perfect conditions only so...? im stumped

    thanks in advance

    forgot to add bios settings are raid ahci mode as soon as I figure out how to take screen shots of the bios ill upload them

    From the ASRock website:
    ASRock > Products > 990FX Extreme4
    • 6 x SATA3 6.0 Gb/s connectors by AMD SB950, support RAID (RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 0+1, JBOD and RAID 5), NCQ, AHCI and "Hot Plug" functions
    • 2 x SATA3 6.0 Gb/s connectors by Marvell SE9120, support NCQ, AHCI and "Hot Plug" functions (SATA3_8 connector is shared with eSATA3 port)


    What are the motherboard sata port numbers used by your raid 0 setup?
    You can always take a digital camera picture of your screen and attach the cropped photo to a new post.
    It's best to keep the attached photo's width to 800 pixels or less.

    Did you follow the raid installations found in page 46 of the motherboard user manual?
    Did you follow the instructions in the separate Raid Installation Guide on the Support CD?
    ASRock > Products > 990FX Extreme4 > Manual might have a more recent raid guide.

    It looks like you are using the AMD sata3 ports.
    If you were using the Marvell sata3 ports, they probably have lower sata3 performance.

    Have you checked with the Crucial SSD support forums for help?
