hope you're still active in these forums.
I'm trying to do the same thing with my Z820, speeding up Davinci when working with 6k timelines.
I've installed the Z Turbo Quad Pro, but I can only see one one of the four drives installed.
Did you have similar problems and were you able to solve them?

I get real 2500 write / read speeds on 4K with these drives striped raid 0. Hope this helps!

Thanks for your quick reply.
Very unfortunate, I wonder if this is a technical limitation or something HP did on purpose.
I know PCIe bifurcation needs to be supported for the Z Turbo Quad to work, but there is no info available regarding the Z820 on this subject.
I assume you tried all three 16x Slots, tried all the addresses and variuos BIOS settings (still wondering what PCIe Performance Mode is)?
Are your CPUs v1 or v2? Maybe that makes a difference.
I already bought the Z Turbo Quad Pro and 4 1TB M2 drives, so I would have to sell the card and get two G2 cards.
A bit of a headache ...

Hp sent another quad to test along with emulating my system setup with a setup in support department. The end result was the Z820 wasn't compatible with the quad.
