I looked into this a few weeks ago and it doesn't look like you would be able to boot from NVMe on SR-2

No problem ! I love my SR-2, still going strong ! 
 
On a similar note... Have you every had issues with your SATA 3 (red) ports ?
Mine are 'on' in the bios, but bios doesn't see drives connected to them ?
If you are using SATA 3, are your speeds better than the SATA 2 ports ?

Hohohhold on guys! The SR-2 CAN boot from an NVMe drive with Clover / DUET the same way X58 boards can. Not even talking about the 950PRO that supposedly has AHCI mode but mine never booted on the SR-2 without Clover.
I've done it years ago and remember it booted from USB drive first which then initialized the NVMe drive and booted Windows.

Use a cheep raidcontroller with a bunch of SSD's in raid0.
4x250GB SSD around 1800mb/s, r/w in a old SR-2 is fast.

And its easy to backup the system and restore it after hd failure

Hi Rob,
 
I have 20:SSD’s on a Areca 1882ix-24 but thought a NVME would freshen up the old lady πŸ˜‰

Re: SR-2 and NVMe drives 2020/06/28 15:27:17 (permalink)
I've recently set up a Kingston A2000 NVMe with Silverstone M.2 - PCI-E adapter, works like a charm by using this guide: https://www.win-raid.com/t3286f50-Guide-NVMe-boot-for-systems-with-legacy-BIOS-and-UEFI-board-DUET-REFIND.html 
Done in 30 minutes, including Windows installation, much easier than it used to be years ago when using Clover.
I do get the 'WHEA recovered' errors sorted out, disabled SATA3/USB3.0 but it still drops me PCI-E related WHEA warning (not BSOD, just a warning) in event viewer every 5 minutes. Could be the NVMe drive, could be the GPU (GT1030)...P95 passed hours and hours of testing, 0 issues.
Considering this is obsolete hardware and has no W10 drivers, it could be absolutely ANYTHING, it's not OC related either.

If i was 100% sure where it came from, I wouldn't care but...I have no clue what causes this. :D 
You won't see any messages on the screen, just in the event viewer.

Re: SR-2 and NVMe drives 2020/07/05 08:11:12 (permalink)
My LSI9260 pumping  2000/1400mb/s  R/W
4 ssd drives in raid0.
HD bench is little unstable because im OC cpu`s, probably better results with original settings.
 
Theoretical:
5 ssd`s 2500/1650mb/s
6 ssd`s 3000/1800mb/s
 
PCI3.0 is 100% faster than SR-2`s Pcie 2.0. 
So  Nvme 4x pcie Pci 3.0 adapter is half the speed on SR-2.
A Samsung 970 pumping 3500mb/s on a 4x pcie 3.0 but only half the speed on a Pcie2.0
So theoretical  1750/1750mb/s  R/W on a SR-2 with Nvme  and 4x pcie nvme card.
 
Pcie 8x and 16x nvmecard is only for motherboard with 4x4x4x4 and 4x4x in uefi.
 
So a pcie 8x raidcard with a bunch of ssd`s  is faster than a single nvme

Of topic SajinΒ 
Put your pcie 4.0 nvme in a SR-2 and u get 1700-1800mb/s, my old raid card is faster.

Ouch, I stripped two Corsair MP600 but their perf isn’t that great or at least I am not able to make them sing 🎢 
 
I’ll try and find the benchmark result

I have an MP600 too...was hyped when it came out and just 'yolo' ordered the 2TB one, just to find out 970PRO kicks it's butt in everything but Q8 sequential read/write. Empty 4x1TB 970PRO array was hitting 13GB/s read on the TR I can't wait for the 980PRO's, these should be around 20-24GB/s read, nearly approaching DDR3 RAM :D
The MP and the Aorus PCIE4.0 NVMe's are all TLC drives and they get a big hit when you fill them up with data. 970PRO is MLC and doesn't care that much.
The MP600 is nothing special:
