    Best for the Hyper Card in the 1st PCIe slot (1) for the X16 x8 lanes and the graphics card in the 2nd PCIe slot (2).
    The graphics card won't fit on the 3rd bottom PCIe Slot (3).

    You can't put the graphics card on top 1st Slot (1) with a Hyper M.2 Card under it in the 2nd PCIe Slot (2) position because it covers the intake fans for the graphics card.

    Anyone know how to set up a Hardware base VROC Key module boot-able RAID10 on CPU with the Hyper M.2 Card and x4 7600p series SSDs?
    Yeah, I figure probably not. I've been asking ASUS Support to give me that information for a couple weeks now.

    Feel free to help out and post those steps if you know them, and if you do, please include the driver & application file steps.

    The ASUS RAID Guide has some steps, but without those for the HD key BIOS setup or the driver & application files.

    Appears to be no consensus yet for exactly which of those Key files (RSTe or VROC) to use for the HD Key.
    Only known working key is VROCISSDMOD which you dont need for raid0 but do for everything else. This is confirmed with the original RVIE only though, I dont imagine they changed that. The change up in PCIE slots is what kept me from upgrading. Ill stick with my two AIC 900P drives in the other two slots that are not available on Omega or Encore as Im using the 2 X16 for GPUs.

    As for the question of why put to X16 AIC drive cards in some people need fast file transfer in and right back out. Put 4 together and you get better than 10GB/s

    If you go back towards the beginning there is a step by step of what drivers to use in what order and where to get them on winraid. Takes two drivers during the install at the F6 prompt.

    YES VROCISSDMOD is the only key that works AND it ONLY works with high end intel SSDs like Optane 90x series.

    a key can be bought for $20 here: https://www.evga.com/products/produc...W002-00-000066

    lots of other sites charge crazy prices and evga is the cheapest I know of currently.

    Might as well buy the key to allow you to configure multiple RAIDs in various modes: RAID 0 for fast access and super high IOPS and RAID 5 or 1 for redundant storage. $20 is peanuts given how much a system like this cost in total.

    I have found that VROC scales very well with the CPU. I.e. 18 cores and good OC improves the disk access/IO scores (Crystalmark etc).

    If you are concerned about space limitations on the Intel octane m.2 drives, get the U.2 model and use u.2 cables to M.2 converters problem solved...

    Also based on 2 years of VROC experience, I can say that VROC is rock solid - it just works - period. (downside is it only works with intel high end drives on a X299 and requires the VROCISSDMOD key to use RAID other than RAID0).
