    This is maybe because i have a modded bios whit RSTE rom 3.8.xxxx ?

    EDIT: ok i try a benchmark whit crystal disk mark this time and whit crystal disk mark i got a good result in write.. 510mb/s.

    What wrong?? A bug whit samsung magician software??

    EDIT 2: AS SSD benchmarking give me too a bad write performance.. (300MB/s). I think i will reinstall Irst dude..

    EDIT 26;P: I can confirme, whit IRST i got back my 500+MB/s in write and system boot better too!
    I'm glad you got it all worked out for the best. From what I've been reading about IRST in AHCI mode is that it does work better than Microsoft's standard AHCI driver. For some reason my eyes skipped over the fact you aren't using RAID.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I can't find any information to explain why the Accelerate function is grayed out. My guess is that the driver is not properly enabled on the device or needs reinstalled. Changing from IRST to RSTe or even AHCI may/will require a full Windows reinstall. It seems like a long and drawn out process to switch between them.

    The main reason I chose RSTe over IRST is my RAID 0 SSDs. While IRST helps HDDs with the added boost of a SSD, that's something I don't require. There are hybrid HDDs with SSD elements that give the same results as IRST, without having it installed. With RSTe being an enterprise driver, I feel much more secure using it.

    Testing BETA BIOS' comes with high risks that range from simple incompatibility to total data loss/corruption. It's like a box of chocolates...lol I would suggest having an image of your OS drive readily available for recovery purposes. I legally downloaded the OS .iso from here, used this to get all of the updates, used this to slipstream them back in to the .iso, and use that to reinstall Windows with. You can also use this to slim down/customize Windows to suite your needs, before slipstreaming the updates.

Shut down when complete and you'll have F3u again.
    Special thanks to you, I lost my iRST too and cannot overclock my 3820 no more after upgrade my bios over F14 on my GA-X79-UD3. Now I was able to downgrade before F15 with that.

    Thanks!
