Hi Gents

i'm trying to install Asus HYPER M.2 x16 v2 with 4 pcs NVMe SSDs (Corsair Force MP510 3D TLC nand) and I fail. My BIOS is v1.25 on this machine by the way (legacy boot).

As I know z840 supports a bootable nvme like Z turbo drive (g1 & g2), however after installation Asus card I see only one of total four drives, thus no RAID, nor other ssd.

I tried to test by replacing of standard Z turbo drive ssd with corsair ssd - it does work but with SMART error message. Asus card with Corsair ssd boots also with the same message. Speed is 2x faster by the way than Z-drive

Therefore two questions:

  1. does Z turbo drive G1 supports a nvme TLC ssd except the original? I checked specs G1 and G2 support MLC kind of
  2. how can I disable SMART check ? why I see this error? and what are the possible consequences?

I will also give a try Asus card with original ssd from Z turbo drive today.
