Solved Crucial Real SSD question Tags: SSD SATA Intel Storage Last response: November 18, 2010 12:27 PM in Storage Share Nubiatem November 17, 2010 8:38:27 PM From what I understand since intel does not support sata 3 yet boards come with a different controller for it. I have the rampage 3 formula board and plan on using sata 3. My question is is it necessary/optimal to use Intel rts drivers "f6" or is that not possible because the drive will be used as sata 3? These questions might be noob, but I don't wana wreck anything, and the crucial forums are a bit sparse. Thanks.

You can not use the Intel AHCI driver, so no F6, just install using the default uSoft AHCI driver. Share Nubiatem November 18, 2010 12:27:41 PM Thanks! m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
