Setup: 2x OCZ Agility 3 60gigs (2.15 fw) - On the 2 new sata cables that came with my new mobo connected to the two sata6 ports and verified in bios

ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN 3 (latest/only bios)

Bios settings: Sata mode: Raid Raid 0 configured in the Intel raid bios utility Fresh install of windows 7 64 pro

The problem is that I cannot get sata 6gbs. I can only get sata 3gbs as verified by the Intel Rapid storage utility version

All parts are new, and all cables, softwares and firmwares are the latest and greatest.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Are you saying that the speeds you're getting don't reach 6Gbps (which can be a result of other factors), or that the Rapid Storage utility is telling you this only support SATA II rather than SATA III? – Shinrai Jan 9 '12 at 17:17
Rapid Storage Utility reports that it is only connected at 3gbs. And speeds are consistent with that. – eficker Jan 9 '12 at 17:55
What if you're NOT in RAID? – Shinrai Jan 9 '12 at 17:59
I cannot verify that, but it is a good step to look at. I would have to break my array, go back to a single disk and re-image the drive. I was hoping to avoid that step if possible since this is my system drive. – eficker Jan 9 '12 at 18:07
I agree that's it's probably a huge pain, but I can't think of another test offhand (at least one that has any reasonable chance of success) that wouldn't require swapping hardware. If you have a hard drive you can clone your current install onto, that might help simplify the process at least. – Shinrai Jan 9 '12 at 18:10
