ASUS ROG Zenith EXTREME NVME Raid 0

Hello Everyone,

My end goal is to setup raid 0 for my two 500gig EVO NVME drive. I am using the 902 bios

Here is what I have done so far after some research.

Launch CSM: Enabled
Boot Device Control: UEFI Only
Boot from Network Devices: UEFI Driver First*
Boot from Storage Devices: UEFI Driver First*
Boot from PCI-E Expansion Devices: UEFI Driver First

Advanced tab AMD PBS setting and change it to Enable NVME RAID

I am see conflicting information as in to set up sata as RAID from amds website then I see in some cases not to.

I can See the AMD RAIDXpert2 RAID Management Utility

From their I am just wondering if I need to delete the array then assign the drives individually to raid 0?

Am I missing anything?

Maybe take a look at this video...BIOS options should be the same I guess

Options in ASUS UEFI seems to marry up with video.

OP check out the section NVMe/SATA RAID in OP of this thread, there is a larger PDF within AMD SW (links/info there).

I was able to get raid 0 setup :). Now I am trying to figure out if it would be best to user Asus or AMDs raid drivers and chipset before installing windows. I will be using the f6 method

I'd opt for AMD 😉 . I also just fixed the links in that OP section to Flaxen Hegemony post, which has testing on ASUS RAM Cache II, do take note of Ljugtomten's post as well.

That is what I was thinking is to use AMD instead of ASUS

You'll find latest ones will always be on AMD site, ASUS site may or may not update later. I tend to always get drivers from manufacturer of xyz if you get what I mean.

Yes, that is highlighted in the OP section on OCN 🙂 and I would use the later drivers 🙂 .

The reason the KB link has been kept there is as it has extra info, which the driver page does not.
