GA-EP41-UD3L: AHCI and SSDs
« on: May 15, 2012, 07:13:28 pm »
Hi

I am considering purchasing an SSD drive for my PC. However, from my research on the internet it seems as though it is advisable (but not essential) to set AHCI mode for storage in order to get maximum benefit. Two years ago I purchased a Gigabyte GA-EP41-UD3l mobo but try as I might I cannot find any way of setting AHCI mode. Is this because this mobo doesn't support AHCI? If it does, could someone please tell me how to select it in the BIOS. Or is it a case of updating the BIOS (I have v6.00PG)? If this mobo doesn't support AHCI, what sort of degradation would I be likely to see in the performance of an SSD?

A few questions I know but I hope someone can come up with some answers for me. Many thanks.

Tracey
