Intel Rapid Storage Technology..question.

I don't run RAID, but just wondering if these drivers are required/useful on my Gigabyte Z170X motherboard.
I have an Intel 750 SSD, and Samsung SSD's installed.

Just curious.
Thanks.

And it continues.
I found that the AX860i is at fault, because there were no stop/start/stop/start booting problems when I swapped it for my 'old' HX620W PSU.

So, something else to RMA back.

Thanks very much for taking time to reply.

A very nice list to choose from, so in the end it may just come down to price, but whatever I choose I know that it will be worthwhile.

Thanks again.
