I did see in the notes of the bios mod I downloaded it said it addressed a bunch of issues, maybe ones found on asus thought dont know.

    Right now my X58A-OC is down while PSU is on RMA for 2 weeks or so. So I would not be able to test for my self unless I brake down another system to steel its PSU for a quick test. But I was using the Marvell Ports as a boot drive and from what I could tell no issues. You can see some of my testings in the link in my sig. What drive are you using on the Marvell ports.
    The BIOS came from a Marvell insider, but I do not have direct contact with him though. I do believe that it was used on an Asus board as well but I am not sure which one. In all I noticed that the controller is more stable when running RAID with the 0025 than with the stock 0017 BIOS. My testing was done with a Corsair Force GT series drives (2x 120GB drives) using the newest Sandforce controller. I found that on 0017 BIOS the RAID array was very prone to corruption when used as the OS drive, especially when overclocking. Almost all of that went away when using the 0025 BIOS. I also noticed a slight bump in performance when testing with AS SSD, though I did not do extensive testing to eliminate any statistical error. I have not been using the 0017 for many months now and have been using the 0025 BIOS solid for a long time. Having said that, because of the potential of corruption when overclocking I do not bother with Marvell for RAID any more as Intel generally responds better when overclocking. Also, I noticed that ICHR10 provides better performance for 4K reads and writes, where as Marvell (both 0017 and 0025 BIOS) provides better sequential.

    I will post up the 0025 BIOS if you want to use it (hopefully) tonight. I just find it disappointing that Marvell does not post up these builds officially since I pretty much know for a fact that they have updated builds internally (just like the 0025 we are talking about here).

    I also have a finished mod (did it a couple of days ago) for the X58A-OC based on the F5e BIOS that I can post up. The mod includes the following option ROMs.

    Intel RAID ROM: 11.1.0.1413
    Marvell RAID ROM: 1.0.0.0025
    Realtek PXE ROM: 2.46

    dejanh,
    The newest Marvell 91xx ORom I have is 1.0.0.1029 (9123B.bin - 26.5 KB).
    It would seem to me that that is a pretty Old Version you are using.
    Are you sure it isn't v1.0.0.1025 and NOT 1.0.0.0025 ??
    Please post a link so we can look at it.

    Here is version 1.0.0.1029:
    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/55030067/Mar...1.0.0.1029.rar

    Version 1.0.0.1027 (27 KB) is here:
    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/55030067/Mar...027%20ORom.rar

    And Here's the Version 1.0.0.1025 Orom I have (27.5 KB):
    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/55030067/Mar...025%20ORom.rar


    EDIT:
    As lsdmeasap pointed out your MB has the Newer 9182 Chip so v1.0.0.0025 is new for that chip.
    Sorry for the Confusion and Thanks for the Info.

    Not really, Technically that U3S6R0 and U3S6R1 Firmware used to Flash the Marvell chip (MVFlash on the U3S6 Board) is considered to be Version 1.0.0.1028 but the ORom included in that package (what we normally replace in a Gigabyte BIOS is version 1.0.0.1019).
    That 1.0.0.1028 Version is actually for use with this RAID/USB3 Card:
    ASUS - Motherboards- ASUS U3S6

    They use the same Marvell chip (9123 in this case) as many Gigabyte MBs, but are two different things completely.

    Look here and you will see: (Firmware version/mvflash version/Host BIOS ORom version)
    at the Bottom of the page under Marvell MV91xx / Firmware.
    http://www.station-drivers.com/page/marvell.htm
    But it definitely does NOT have the 1.0.0.1028 Marvell RAID ROM included in that package.

    Just wanted to comment on all this Marvell talk, keep in mind 9182 does not use the same BIOS/firmware as 9128/9123

    Good Point, I didn't realize he has a 9182 and not a 9128 on that MB.
    So, 1.0.0.0025 is new for the 9182, the f5e Beta has version 1.0.0.0017 in it.
