    Prime-A Z590 - only with nvme-SSDs - do i need AHCI-Drivers?

    Hi,

    i want to run 2 nvme-SSDs on my Prime-A Z590.
    1 PCIe 4.0 4x in Slot M2_1
    1 PCIe 3.0 4x in Slot M2_3
    NO SATA-Drives!

    I disable all SATA-Ports in the Bios.

    Do i still need the AHCI-Driver or is this for SATA only?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    No, you don't need SATA AHCI drivers.

    Note : Since you are not using your SATA ports at all, in order to save energy, you can disable your SATA Controller in your BIOS (Avanced > PCH Strorage Configuration > SATA Controller : Disabled then F10 to save & exit).
