Attention:
1. Attach the CPU and heatsink using silica gel to ensure full contact.
2. It is suggested to select high-quality, certified fans in order to avoid
damage to the motherboard and CPU due high temperatures.
3. Never turn on the machine if the CPU fan is not properly installed.
4. Ensure that the DC power supply is turned off before inserting or
removing expansion cards or other peripherals, especially when
you insert or remove a memory module. Failure to switch off the DC
power supply may result in serious damage to your system or
memory module.
Attention:
W e cannot guarantee that your system will operate normally while
over-clocked. Normal operation depends on the over-clock capacity
of your device.
Attention:
Since BIOS programs are upgraded from time to time, the BIOS
description in this manual is just for reference. W e do not guarantee
that the content of this manual will remain consistent with the actual
BIOS version at any given time in the future.
Attention:
The pictures of objects used in this manual are just for your reference.

NVIDIA RAID
RAID Arrays
This section describes the following types of RAID arrays that NVIDIA RAID
supports:
v RAID 0
RAID 0 defines a disk striping scheme that improves the disk read and write
times for many applications.
vRAID 1
RAID 1 defines techniques for mirroring data.
vRAID 0+1
RAID 0+1 combines the techniques used in RAID 0 and RAID 1 arrays.
vRAID 5
RAID 5 provides fault tolerance and better utilization of disk capacity.
vSpanning (JBOD)
JBOD provides a method for combining drives of different sizes into one large
disk.

Appendix
Additional RAID Features
NVIDIA RAID offers the following additional features:
vFree Disk and Dedicated Spare Disk
A Free Disk or Dedicated Disk can be automatically used in case one drive of a
fault-tolerant array fails. NVIDIA RAID defines a fault-tolerant array as either
RAID 1, RAID 0+1, or RAID 5. A free disk can be used by any available faulttolerant array, while a dedicated disk can be used only by the array to which it is
assigned.
vBootable RAID
This allows you to install the operating system onto the RAID volume.
vMorphing
Morphing is the ability to convert from one RAID mode to another RAID mode.
This allows the user to upgrade their current disk or array for better performance,
higher security, and increased capacity. More importantly, this is accomplished
withouthaving to go through multiple steps. The morphing feature gives the user
an upgradeable option to manage storage easily.
vHot Plug Array
A nice flexibility feature is the ability to move MediaShield RAID arrays from one
nForce system to another. Since most nForce systems support SATA hot plug
capability, you can add/remove a RAID array even while the system is running.
This is done using the Hot Plug Array wizard.

Basic Configuration Instructions
The following are the basic steps for configuring NVIDIA RAID:
Non-Bootable RAID Array
1. Choose the hard disks that are to be RAID enabled in the system BIOS.
2. Specify the RAID level, either Mirroring (RAID 1), Striping (RAID 0), Stripe Mirroring
(RAID 0+1), or Spanning (JBOD) and create the desired RAID array.
3. Install the operating system on one hard disk, then reboot the computer.
4. Run the Windows nForce Setup application and install the RAID driver.
5. Initialize the NVRAID Array.
Bootable RAID Array
1. Choose the hard disks that are to be RAID enabled in the system BIOS.
2. Specify the RAID level, either Mirroring (RAID 1), Striping (RAID 0), Mirrored Striping
(RAID 0+1), or Spanning (JBOD) and create the desired RAID array.
3. Boot from the Windows CD, then press F6 when the Windows Setup appears.
4. Insert the RAID driver floppy to Install the nForce RAID driver.
5. Initialize the NVRAID Array.

Setting Up the BIOS
1. Start up the computer, then press Delete to enter the BIOS setup. Select Integrated Peripherals, use the arrow keys to select IDE Function Setup, then press
Enter.
2. Use the arrow keys to select the RAID Config, then press Enter.
3. From the RAID Config window, enabled the RAID Enable, the other items would
be light, then you can enable the disk that you want to use as RAID disks.

Entering the RAID BIOS Setup
1. After rebooting your PC, wait until you see the RAID software prompting you to
press F10. The RAID prompt appears as part of the system POST and boot process
prior to loading OS.
2. Press<N>, and the NVIDIA RAID Utility --- Define a New Array window will appear.
The default RAID Mode is set to Mirroring and the default Striping Block is set to
Optimal.
Understanding the “Define a New Array” Window
Use the Define a New Array window to
• Select the RAID Mode
• Set up the Striping Block
• Specify which disks to use for the RAID Array
Depending on the platform used, the system have one or more adapters. In a typical
system there are usually one channel and multiple adapters, and each adapter
have a slave and a master.
The adapter/channel/master/slave status of each hard disk is given in the Loc
(location) columns of the Free Disks and Array Disks lists.
1. 0. M
M: Master
S: Slave
0: Channel
Adapter 0 is used for PATA drives;
Adapter 1 is used for SATA drives.

In the example above, 1.0.M means the hard drive is attached to Adapter 1, Channel
0, and the drive is set to Master. The following is a list of all possible combinations:
Parallel ATA

Adapter 2, Channel 0, Master
Adapter 2, Channel 1, Master
Adapter 3, Channel 0, Master
Adapter 3, Channel 1, Master
Note: There is no such thing as Slave drive in Serial ATA. All drives are considered to
be Master since there is a one to one connection between the drive and the channel.
Using the Define a New Array Window
If necessary, press the tab key to move from field to field until the appropriate field is
high lighted.
• Selecting the RAID Mode
By default, this is set to [Mirroring]. Change to a different RAID mode, press the
down arrow keys until the mode that you want appears in the RAID Mode box—
either [Mirroring], [Striping], [Spanning], [Stripe Mirroring] or RAID 5.
Note: Not all RAID levels are supported on all platforms.
• Selecting the Striping Block Size
Striping Block size is given in kilobytes, and affects how data is arranged on the
disk. It is recommended to leave this value at the default [Optimal], which is 32KB,
but the values can be between [4 KB] and [128 KB].

• Assigning the Disks
The disks that you enabled from the RAID Config BIOS setup page appear in the
Free Disks block. These are the drives that are available for use as RAID array.
To designate a free disk to be used as a RAID array:
1. Tab to the Free Disks section. The first disk in the list is selected.
2. Move it from the Free Disks block to the Array Disks block by pressing the right
arrow key (→). The first disk in the list is moved, and the next disk in the list is
selected and ready to be moved.
3. Continue pressing the right-arrow key (→) until all the disks that you want to use
as RAID array appear in the Array Disks block.
It shows that two disks have been assigned as RAID1 array disks in the figure
above.
