AMD Raid - X570 and MP600s not playing nicely

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Afternoon all!

 

I've a weird problem that is frustrating me, and I'm hoping that someone here will have an idea of what the problem might be. The essence of my problem is that I have two 1TB Corsair MP600s in RAID0 using AMD raid on my Asus Crosshair VIII Formula motherboard. This drive, my D: drive, will lock up the whole computer eventually with 100% active time. It will only do this when a significant amount of writing is done to the drive. My system boot drive is a Samsung 950Pro 512GB on a PCI card. Has anyone come across anything like this?

Yep, I have the Asus windows AMD raid drivers installed. Also have latest BIOS on the motherboard, all windows updates, chipset drivers updated, etc. Tried clearing CMOS. No luck.

Try disabling armour crate ? Or maybe your exceeding the speed limit!?

What do you have in the pci-e and sata ports?

LOL "exceeding the speed limit". Is that a technical term?

 

I've 3 x WD 6TB black drives, a Samsung EVO 860, an RTX2070 Super, and the system drive on a Samsung 950 Pro an NVMe PCI card.

Haha

+ gpu? How many PCI-e lanes is that? Hint: check CPU specs + chipset specs

I shouldn't think I'm close to using all the PCI lanes - Zen 3 and X570 are noted for having plenty. It's probably something else.

Update: Having disabled the AMD RAID in the motherboard, and reinstalled windows to use 1 MP600 as the boot and system drive, and the other as D:\ drive, the locking up problem has gone away. It looks to me like the issue is either with the motherboard or with the raid drivers. Bah humbug. That took a lot of sorting out.
