    Default Z77 Extreme 3 NVMe support

    Hi,

    I see that Z77 Extreme 4 and 6 have received beta NVMe support:
    ASRock > Z77 Extreme4
    ASRock > Z77 Extreme6

    Is it possible to add same support to Extreme 3?

    I'll try and see with MMTOOL which modules have been updated and relevant with this...

    Thanks.

    Looked at the modules in the extreme 6, and it should work, but I'm not telling to to do it, only an opinion.

    Just found someone that used the 9 series modules and apparently added them to 7 series, the DXE, PEI, and UEFI code was added to them so they had the option in UEFI to set and see the PCI-E. I'm not telling you to try, I think you should just ask ASrock and they should mod one for you, they always have for me back in the day.

    Contact ASrock support and ask them to send you a modded UEFI with it.

    I've asked support, now I'll wait... Didn't knew that ASRock support actually reacts to inquiries like that.

    I have a plan buying Samsung 950 Pro 256GB, hopefully it will work.

    Thank you.

    You're very welcome. You must understand on this site we shouldn't go against the MFG and what they recommend. What you want to do should work, but unless you really know what you're doing, you don't want to be buying a new chip so that's also why I usually say to ask them.

    They updated some of the other 7 series so I think they will do it for you, but if they feel they don't want to add it to that board, at least you tried to do it with the MFG. If they don't, personally I would try and add them, as i have added a lot to all my UEFI such as the newest RST OROMS, EFI RAID Drivers.

    Tada!

    Thanks Eddy.
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.
    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    #3 - Please use the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be your PSU at issue.
    ____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.

    I'm praying you still have the BIOS and can share it? I've spent several hours trying to edit mine to make it work for the samsung 960 pro with no avail -- no space left...
