    Hi All,
    Great Article DAGMAR, Thanks Its very appropiate for me!!

    Recently Purchased the ROG CG8580 - Extreme which came with Win 8 installed with IRST (Intel Rapid Storage Technology) on it!
    BUT, I am going to Install Win 7 Pro x64 on the Original Drives - 1 x Sandisk SSD & 1 x 2TB Seagate HDD. Have Backed up the Win 8 for Later Use
    etc and Both Drives are Now "UNALLOCATED"!! Once I've Set the "SATA Configuration" to "RAID" and the "Intel Matrix Storage Manager Screen" comes Up, to Create the RAID Volume (With above in Mind), Should I Set the RAID Volume to "RAID -0" OR should I Set It to Something else???

    Having SSD (Sandisk Extreme 120MB SSD) Mixed with the Seagate HDD is What Concerns me, But Guess it works! Also, I Understand that the "TRIM" function is Nowhere to be found!! Maybe someone can enlighten me!!

    I had also decided to Download the CG8580 Win 7 x64 "Chipset" & "SATA" files from the ASUS Download Site:

    What Concerns me is there is very little Info about What files Should be Installed (No Install Guide, No Readme etc) which help me decide what should be Installed First, ie What dependancies exist! EG Should I Install the "Intel Chipset" before the MEI (Management Engine Interface) etc.,
    and thats just the Chipset Files, Never Mind the SATA drivers etc which SEEM to also included the IRST files. Hopefully Someone can enlighten me with this as well. I have requested tech support from ASUS, But as yet No Reply to what File's should be installed 1st etc. I'm Sure there must be some sequence / Order of installation that need to be Met, But I dont like having to Guess!!!

    Anyway I'll Have a Look at the Intel Site & IRST and see what comes out of that, meantime if anyone can point me in the right direction, I would certainly appreciate it!!
