    ASUS ROG RAMPAGE VI Extreme Encore Motherboard - Connecting the Board Components

    ASUS ROG RAMPAGE VI Extreme Encore Motherboard - Connecting the Board Components
    As an average PC Builder, I believe even the best of us can have trouble connecting up all of the peripherals from time to time.
    Let's face it, not all components come with the easiest to understand or to follow instructions.

    MY POST here is intended to help those building with the ASUS ROG RAMPAGE VI Extreme Encore Motherboard or the Corsair Graphite Series 780T Full case.

    I apologize for not posting the intended PDF file of steps I created during my Build to date. I have been trying to complete the VROC HD KEY RAID 10 on CPU with the ASUS Hyper M.2 Card. with x 4 M.2 SSDs.
    ASUS Support kindly provided the ASUS Motherboard RAID Configuration Guide steps to follow.
    I have been unable to progress through those steps, because I am waiting for ASUS Support to provide the answers to those problems I ran into with following them. No answers yet to date from Support.
    After so many case tickets and weeks of asking, it seems doubtful that the ASUS support resources for the latest Rampage VI Encore board have caught up with providing all the answers yet.
    So, all I can do is hope to find another builder on one of the tech Forums. Maybe someone who has successfully managed to navigate the issues I ran into and put together the VROC HD key Module RAID 10 on CPU UEFI Bootable.


    MY POST Revision; Most post viewers are searching to learn how to do something or fix something.

    GETTING STARTED SHARED LINKS You Can Go To:
    Note: While not all links are the most current of date, they are still relevant enough to convey what you need to understand at a basic level.

    This is the ASUS Rampage VI Extreme Encore Online Motherboard Manual link with a separate side menu Table of Contents for Quick Navigation.

    takes us to the ASUS Driver & Tools or BIOS & Firmware Download screens, specifically for the ROG Rampage VI Extreme Encore motherboard model. Click on the Please select OS and chose the WINDOWS 10 64bit or other OS you have.

    The above Link explains the differences between MBR and GPT disk formats.


    SETTING UP THE RAID: Know and Decide what kind of RAID to setup you want depends on how drives and types you have to use.
    TWO BOOT TYPE RAIDS: BIOS boot-able RAID or Software Boot-able RAID [ RSTe Driver RAID or RST Program RAID ]
    NOTE: VROC x299 Boards require the purchase of the HD Key Module for a BIOS Boot-able VROC RAID 1, 5, 10 as listed in my Hardware List above.
    NOTE: VROC x299 board doesn't require the purchase of the HD Key Module for a (Non-BIOS) Software Boot-able VROC RAID 0

    You will need Compatible VROC NVMe Hard Drives. Intel 7600p series was listed as on of several intel offer (But it not limited to just Intel )
    I'll again look for Intel's compatibility list and post the link here later.

    For Multiple M.2 SSD configuration RAIDS there are several devices with which to do that based on the number and size RAID you need.
    The ASUS Hyper M.2 X16 Card V2 can do x2 or x4 RAIDs. { Know which PCIe Slot it goes in)

    [/B] Updated July 10, 2019
    NOTE: In no situation should Intel RST and Intel VROC be used on the same platform at the same time. This use is non compatible with the platform and is not supported.
    Q.8Where can I get an Intel VROC hardware key? A8: With Intel VROC moving into sustaining mode on X299 HEDT platforms, the Intel VROC hardware keys will no longer be actively sold to X299 customers. Please use Intel RST instead which does not require a hardware key.[/SIZE]
