    install AHCI/RAID Driver on samsung 950 pro

    I am going to be using the Samsung 950 pro on my Maximus Hero Alpha board.
    Do I need to install the Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology Driver Software?
    If not, how do I install the Intel(R) AHCI/RAID Driver? Do I need it? Why are these 2 listed together in the download section?

    Hello acerzr2

    If you're only running one ssd you can skip them both.

    No, the only driver you need for your 950 Pro is the Samsung NVMe driver, found here. It's in the section labeled Samsung NVMe Driver Installer. Windows 10 has its own NVMe driver (Win8 might too), but Samsung's is better. Then download and install the Samsung Magician Software for PC, found on that same page.
