    Also, thanks for your work and help!

    Effectively this is the first time i see a ROM/EFI RAID 12.7.0.1936 and SVGA BIOS 2177 natively inside a GB BIOS .

    Well, I cant find anything that resembles that, I have hardware editor, what am I looking under?, I tried acpi ec space and acpi, so I don't know why it keeps enabling in rst UI.

    Merci !
    Just to be clear, you just did that this instant? Just because I asked? If you did then, again, thanks a lot!

    I do have a couple of questions though, you used F5j, do you know why the stable version was removed from GA website?
    Also, if and when they release F6, will it need to be moded like that too or do they also update the things you updated?

    Until you ask it i forgot doing this mod...
    As you, i supposed they discovered F5 wasn't stable enough and returned to beta version ?
    They usually do not include the latest versions .. probably because they prefer versions which has been extensively tested ?
    Stasio will probably a more accurate opinion about it.

    The tables will be in binary format not decompiled as above but you should see the table ID (LakeTiny) and maybe recognize some of the variables in the binary. As you have already noticed you do not have it. Parsec should have it on his Z87. If it is possible to have on older systems then something like the table above would be one of the things needed.

    Intel RST 12.x supports DSA - What you should know
    Beginning with the Intel RST 12.0 Release version, the Dynamic Storage Accelerator (DSA) feature is supported.
    System BIOS must include the ACPI method GLTS (Get Dynamic Storage Accelerator Status) implemented.
    The default is ‘Off’; it must be set to ‘On’ to enable DSA.
    DSA can only be enabled on specific SKUs of the Intel 8-Series chipset platforms, as follows:
    QM87, HM87, Q87, Z87 (and only with Core branded CPUs).

    What does DSA do exactly?
    Through the RST UI in Windows, your storage performance can be optimized by allowing DSA
    to manage the gear setting based on the current Windows power-plan and detected I/O activity.
    The feature can be configured to one of two modes:

    1. Automatic: DSA is enabled and is optimizing your system’s CPU C-state by using the
    Windows Power plan setting and the dynamic I/O activity detected on the system.

    2. Manual: DSA is enabled and will operate in one of three "gears" that you set, regardless of the Windows power plan setting.
    Those are: Power saver gear, Balanced gear, High performance gear

    DSA is supported on the following Operating Systems:
    Windows 7 (32bit, 64bit)
    Windows 8 (32bit, 64bit)

    Well thanks again, I will test it tonight!
    Can I come back if and when they release a new BIOS to get it moded? That would be awesome :)

    Ah, thankyou, silly intel rst orom 12 is more buggy than first thought, to think that my system as dsa, maybe its just not designed to be put on x79 platform.

    Or maybe it is in limbo like the trim support was for X79 in RST 11.6 OROM, possibly might just need a BIOS update to incorporate it (speculation).
