HYPER M.2 X16 CARD and raid 0 on x299

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello as the topic states im trying to get my hyper m.2 x16 work with me and allow me to make a raid 0 array, but the bios wont even find the drives, windows find them just fine done alot of googeling but no luck all threads end dead 
Anyone here have anything to add that might help me do this ? 

I want it as a raid 0 array bottable, i know Linus did a video a while back so it is possible 😜

Thanks for any replys 

Best Regards
Optimize

Im doing it for the storage space, been running raid 0 for non NVME drives for years but im new to NVME drives but they are driving me insane since windows sees them and the bios sees them as a boot device but they dont show up in the intel raid manager under  the bios... its like they dont want us to do it and i know Linus and the guys thad some serious issues getting it to work

its also not worth it as it can be buggy, slower, and just not work . Just keep them separate or put them into a storage pool.

You are adding more hardware, which implies more troubleshooting / support. I would contact ASUS directly, the link is under "Do you need more help?":

With 4 900P drives in VROC 0 this is what you get for performance.

This is an Asus x299 Apex and the Hyper M.2 16X.

While the sequential speed is no doubt insane its actually the 4KQ1T1 that really stands out. Usually when you have anything in RAID 0 the 4K speed goes directly to hell but not here. VROC works very well with Optane.

Obviously the price is too much to consider but this is what performance is technically possible.

EDIT:

Yes this is bootable.

As crazy as this is, here is a guy that did the same thing with 8 900P drives.

It requires 2 Hyper 16x cards obviously but you also lose the ability to boot:

Whoa, that's a fast roller coaster! 😮
