Thread: Stable E8400 OC - stock voltages

    Default Re: Stable E8400 OC - stock voltages

    I'm curious as to what would be the best way to set these options for Win 7 Pro 64bit. I'm guess the options I have in red. I'm not using RAID. Currently, for XP Pro 32bit I have the following set (the ones in bold).

    • SATA RAID/AHCI MODE
      • Disabled

      • RAID

      • AHCI Mode
    • SATA PORT 0-3 NATIVE MODE
      • Enabled

      • Disabled
    • ONBOARD SATA/IDE CONTROL MODE
      • IDE

      • AHCI

      • RAID IDE

    For Non RAID, it depends. You could use AHCI or Just normal IDE Mode (Which is SATA, they just name it that)

    Let me know which you want to use and I can advise.

    I was under the impressin that it was better to use AHCI for Vista or 7. Not sure what the SATA PORT 0-3 NATIVE MODE does.

    You can use that either way, it just assigns IRQ's to the drive or not. Native enabled is suggested, but either works just fine

    AHCI is up to you, not much of a difference really unless you need to hot swap or if you are using SSD.

    Okay....so it may make sense to do for Win 7 if I want to hotswap our get an SSD drive down the road. But, this would have to be setup during install of Win 7 correct? Not changed in the BIOS after the fact?

    No, with windows 7 you can change it anytime actually, just need a simple registry edit is all.

    So you would do the reg edit, then change the BIOS.

    What's the reg tweak?

    Here ya go, do this then you can change the BIOS setting anytime you like

    Enable switching between all IDE/AHCI/RAID modes in Vista or Windows 7 by changing "Start" Values in these keys to 0

    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci\Start
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Pciide\Start  
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\iaStorV\Start

    I believe there is a performance trick that can be used on Intel ICh boards. One sets the BIOS to RAID, sets up the single disk as JBOD/Non Member RAID (Non Member is basically AHCI but with all the restrictions of a RAID like not being able to flash SSD FW etc) then installs Windows.

    After you install you should then be able to enable Intel Matrix Writeback Cache and aux. drive cache for a performance boost. Does nothing for sequential speeds but can help in small random transfers, which happen to be a HDD's weakness.

    This is a bit envolved though and you need to know your way around IMSM (there are two cache options, many people miss the second).
