Hi there!

New in the forums, long time subscriber and lurker.

Anyway, I want to buy the new RAIDR Express, currently I have a Maximus Formula V with 2 ASUS Matrix Platinum in Crossfire, my question is, do you think I can expect some "problems" with my Crossfire? Do I need to disable the CF or it's safe to install without experience some issues or troubleshoots?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Kind regards!

Hi there!

How does it work with your SLI configuration? Better, worst or equal. I really want to buy it, but I have my concerns if it's working properly with CF or SLI configurations. Thanks in advance.

Just FYI everything works fine with my sli. Still running at 8x in both slots. Installed raidr in top slot of maximus formula v

uhmmm.,, in a slot PCIx1 ?

Could you used the last pcix 3.0, to x4...

maybe pcix 3.0 x4 ... it´s similar x8 in pcix 2.0 ?

Anyone know if this will work with Maximus VI Hero in SLI?? Was going to use but will it stop the Dual SLI on the Hero???

No it's a pcie 2 slot. No you can't use last pcie 3 slot. Nvidia cards need a minimum of 8x for sli. If ur running amd cards then I guess using last pcie 3 slot would be ok.

Yeah... But... Its x1 size...

Asus raid r :E

PCIe 2.0 x2; 240GB; Dual LSI® SandForce SF-2281 controllers; Toshiba® 19nm 16k page size Sync MLC NAND Flash; sequential read/write speed 830/810MB/s; Up to 100,000 4K read/write IOPS*

I like this mb, but the limit of pxi1 size... I dont sure...

Could we install cards x4 size bus in this smalls pcix 1?...


Slots
3 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16 or dual x8 or x8/x4/x4)
1 x mini-PCIe 2.0 x1
3 x PCIe 2.0 x1

And... Does the armor of mb permit this install ?

The img see that asus raid r is more long...

And the last question:

PCIe Bandwidth Comparison (Each Direction)
* PCIe 1.x PCIe 2.x PCIe 3.0
x1 250MB/sec 500MB/sec 1GB/sec
x2 500MB/sec 1GB/sec 2GB/sec
x4 1GB/sec 2GB/sec 4GB/sec
x8 2GB/sec 4GB/sec 8GB/sec
x16 4GB/sec 8GB/sec 16GB/sec


With 2.0 in x1 go to 500 mb/s... Asus raid r can do 800 mb/s if it in x2 pcix... And a good sdd in sata 6 can do 600 mb/s...

I dont sure about all this... But i think something rare options install...

Again dude u are wrong. I think I know what my board has. My formula v has a pcie 2 at 4x. Thats what I'm using.

Of course... I was speaking about new formula vi...

Your formula v like me a lot of more... 😉 that the new formula vi...

Excuse me please.
