    Default GA-EP45-UD3R and OCZ RevoDrive PCI-Express SSD

    Does anybody know if the OCZ PCI-Express SSD can attach (and operate) to a GA-EP45-UD3R board. From what I read on OCZ RevoDrive 120GB PCI-Express SSD Review - OCZ RevoDrive - Introduction - Legit Reviews and OCZ RevoDrive Review: SSD RAID + PCI-Express - HotHardware , it seems that the MOBO needs a PCI-Express x4 and be able to boot from PCI-E?
    If it works, what would the BIOS look like?

    The EP45-UD3R setup is:
    • 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x16 (The PCI Express x16 slot conforms to PCI Express 2.0 standard)
    • 3 x PCI Express x1 slots
    • 3 x PCI slots

    Unless you are willing to use your PCI-E 16x slot for the SSD card, you won't be able to run it in a 4x slot.
    Check with OCZ tech support to see if/how it will run in a pci-e 1x slot.

    Let us know what OCZ has to say.
    Good luck.

    OCZ mentions that a 4x PCI-E is a prerequisite. Thus the RevoDrive cannot attach to a GA-EP45-UD3R.

    As mentioned above this would not work with that model motherboard, unless you planned to use a PCI Graphics card, then you could probably use the Revo in the PCIE x16 slot without any issues.
