^ Not sure. All my systems are intel based. I've installed win 7 on P965 and P55 and H55 system (Raid0 on first two) and on my two laptops. None required (F6) drivers. On the P55 (I5-750) I dropped the Raid 0 and installed the Intel G2 80 Gig SSD.
You are probably correct on SATA3 vs Sata6, Just looked at a performance review of 4 SSDs in Raid 0. MB used was a Asus P6X58D. It only has 2 Sata 6 connectors, would have been hard to put 4 SATA drives on the Sata6 connection, so thy must have used the Sata3.http://blog.corsair.com/?p=2409
