  1. Either way, I'm going to reinstall windows because I've been having a few issues with programs failing to update. If I have any issues with resetting windows I will post a reply to this post. Thanks for the clarification about the NVMe raid and dynamic drives.
  2. I totally forgot my bad. Here's the link to the pictures, they were to large to send in one reply. https://imgur.com/a/ia3ogVY
  3. Here are some pictures of the various raid settings in the BIOS. It appears that the drives are using "NVMe Raid Mode" which uses my boot drive to boost their performance.
  4. I am pretty sure I saw that the drives were seen as one in the BIOS but I will have to check again. I'm just waiting for this flash drive to reformat, its at 98%
  5. I am 100% positive that those 3 drives are in raid 0, I just don't know exactly how they are configured. Let me boot to the BIOS and take pictures of the raid settings.
  6. The bottom 3 drives listed as type "dynamic" in the list view at the top and the greenish/brown color shown next to the volume view at the bottom means it's a dynamic drive.
  7. I have the manual for my motherboard and I will read it and see where all the raid settings are. I have also attached the disk management screenshots Disk 4 partition 2 is the flash drive. (Its 32gb but I had it formatted for memtest86 so it shows up as 249mb)
  8. There are raid settings changed in the BIOS but I really do not know exactly how it is set up because I did not do it myself. There are no raid files/programs in windows as far as I can tell but I do not know if anything in specific was changed in windows when it was configured.
  9. Would resetting all of the bios settings to default reset the raid configurations and restore normal function of the drive or am I going to have to reformat each of the drives afterwards as well? My boot drive is not a "dynamic" drive like the other three in the raid, but I am not sure if the raid drives are using part of my boot drive to boost their performance. Should I put a windows 10 on a flash drive for reinstalling windows in the off chance that I am unable to boot to windows after resetting the bios?
  10. Yes, I have backed up all of my important data to an external drive.
  11. For a few months now, I've had a raid 0 configuration on my computer. I had someone try to fix some of the issues I was having previously, and in the process the guy configures three of my drives into raid 0 without me knowing or agreeing to it. I didn't even notice my drives were in raid 0 til a month ago because I barely knew anything about raid. Raid 0 is something I absolutely do not running on my computer especially when I have a hard drive that I've been using since 2014. Not sure which thread this should be in, but I figured "Storage Devices" was a good option. I want to reinstall Windows 10 while removing the raid configuration at the same time. I have already backed up my data and stored it on an external drive so I'm not worried about data loss. I can reset and reinstall Windows, but I do not know how to go about removing the raid 0 configuration from my computer. I do not want to brick my hard drives while trying to reset and reformat them. I will provide my full system specs and as much information as possible but I know very little about the raid 0 on my PC and how it was setup. All I know about the raid configuration on my computer is that it is an AMD software related configuration. I also know there are some raid settings turned on in the BIOS but I haven't tried changing anything. I will provide more information if need be. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Specs: AMD Ryzen 5 1600x Asus Prime x470 Pro Corsair 2933 C16 2x16GB RAM AMD Rx 580 8GB Windows 10 Pro version 1909 build 18363.836 1TB NVMe SSD (Boot drive) 1TB SATA SSD 1TB SATA HDD (2014 drive) 4TB SATA HDD
  12. So then why would it be under-performing so much? What configurations would I need to change?
  13. So is it safe, lifespan wise, to enable and disable RAM caching at will? I am just going to switch it a few times for testing purposes, would that notably affect the lifespan of any of my parts?
  14. You will technically need to overclock your RAM to get it to work at the advertised speeds. Its completely safe as long as you do not go above the speeds that your RAM is rated for, in your case 3200 MHz. Its a simple change in the BIOS settings, I had this same exact problem with my RAM. I have 2x16 GB Corsair 2933MHz W/ RGB and it is working completely fine and stable at its rated 2933 MHz after a simple change in the BIOS settings.
  15. Check to see if your PC can even recognize the card to begin with, I would recommend using the BIOS or Device Manager on Windows (If you use Windows) Your BIOS may be configured to use the integrated graphics on the mobo instead of the dedicated graphics on the GPU. Check those two things and then respond with what you find. System specs would also be greatly appreciated and helpful.
