View Full Version : MAXIMUS XIII HERO + 2 x M.2 + I9 11900K -> impossible to have raid

04-13-2021, 04:42 PM
Hello everybody ,

I have a problem with my new hardware.
I bought a Maximus XIII Hero with Bios up to date. The processor is i9 11900K . So i have PCIe gen4 . I have installed 2 m.2 on M.2_1 and M.2_2 . Both are recognized. Till here, no problem.. But, When I choose RST for raid, I don't have any option about "M.2 Raid Support" to enable..

So , I can't have a RAID 0 on my 2 M.2 .. I have already sent an email to the support but, everyday we send an email and there is no solution for the moment. What's the problem on my configuration ?

Can you tell me why I can't make a raid on my 2 M.2 that are both recognised ..

Thanks in advance

I hope to read you

All Z90 chipset's Motherboard. To have raid 0 with PCI16x gen4 , You must buy 2 Intel's NVME m.2 .. other brand won't work.
But ,at this time, Intel doesn't have it's PCIE GEN 4 NVME M.2 device :D

so forget this.. AMD is better for this..

Z590 is the previous chipset with little options that work with some specific brands.
