GGTV-JonHere is a side note / thought I just had. With all the new issues out with Intel having to rework their context switching / speculative stuff is the performance hit (large or small - not a scope in my thought here) going to make all this raid talk (meaning Raid 0, since Raid 1, 5 and 10 all have a place) a mute point, esp with VROC?With the processors (Intel, AMD, ARM) being affected and becoming a bottle neck a single 960 Pro will suffice /random thought
The Intel VROC hardware key is the mechanism to obtain a license to the Intel VROC software. You must insert the Intel VROC hardware key into that motherboard to enable the RAID license. Each system only needs one key. Supported for EVGA X299 FTW K and X299 DARK motherboards
KMoore4318??? What about Non M.2 Key-M, But actual Intel SSD, Drives? Am I going to be able to Raid 0 three Intel SSD 545s Series (512GB, 2.5" SATA, 64-Layer TLC 3D NAND) drives, and make them bootable, like I did on my X58 that quit, it worked but they were limited to sata 2 speeds, and Bottlenecks. Like the poster above, I am a little disappointed I cannot Raid zero the two Samsung (MZ-V7E1T0BW) 970 EVO SSD 1TB - M.2, I bought for this Build, or Boot from them. I did not know about this VROC thing, or Keys, when I found out I was getting a X299FTW, for my E762 RMA. Guess I have a lot to learn, if anyone wants to teach. I hear they are killing off IRST too? So much is and has changed since my X58 Build,,, PCIe lanes based on what CPU you buy, Features that are disabled if you buy the wrong CPU, Still waiting on all my Parts, it's looking like the build will be the easy part, and making everything work, a bear, I was looking forward to learning about UEFI BIOS, But the more I read, the more worried I become. Any other tips and tricks I need to know about? I just learned the 10980XE was about half the price of the 9980X, but just a little more than I originally paid for my 980X. I Hope it's Not true what they say about teaching old dogs new tricks.
arestavoAlso, per core overclocking seems to not be fully stable even at all core settings that were. I'd stick to the standard all core OC if I were you, but if you do per core OC remember that your (per core) vcore will use default (hard coded) values if you use adaptive voltage and the per core frequency is lower than the turbo boost 3.0 single core boost speed. This translates into 1.3+ volts being used on that core, and a VERY hot core. Using voltage override instead of adaptive voltage fixes that. Also, it's the only way to set lower than 1.2 volts for vcore. These large core chips get HOT, and less voltage helps keep the temps down.
woodzstackso apparently RAID 0 is no issue at all for this, according to EVGA, I called them. They confirmed.
