AMD NVME Raid Drivers, which one to choose?

Hi there,

I am running Windows 10, x570 Gigabyte Aorus Master motherboard.

I wanted to create a NVME Raid0. I am wonder what is the difference between the nvme_cc and nvme_did drivers found in the zip package here:

I am surprised no one knows the answer to this question? And AMD doesn't even provide anything in the manual to guide people?


I would let Device Manager decide which one it best for your motherboard.

Unpack the AMD RAID package and then go Device Manager and locate where you have the RAID  drivers installed. Click on the RAID driver's UPDATE DRIVER and guide it to the unpacked RAID Installation folder.  Then click Next and it will automatically scan the entire RAID Installation folder and pick out the correct RAID driver and install it.


Hmm good point. I will do that thanks!


AMD's documentation on this is less than stellar.  While I do not have a direct answer for you I can share how I got NVME & SATA Raid working after days of research and time dealing with ASUS & AMD.


The Best Doc:

Driver Selected: NVME_DID

1st rcbottom

2nd rcraid   (Both from the NVME_DID) Folder contained in the AMD / Chipset Drivers / Raid Drivers

*Order is critical.

Ver: from: 


Boot Method: Windows 10 boot USB created on a Win10 machine with MS MediaCreator.  Partitioned USB Drive into 2 separate partitions.  1st Windows 10 Boot, 2nd Driver Storage (Loaded above drivers to this partition).  Win10 Installer did not see second USB partition until I selected "Rescan" in driver loading section of install.

Big gotcha when the windows installer comes up do not delete any partitions.  If you do- it will also delete the critical RAID information on the disk and you will not be able to install the OS.  This info is buried in the guide above.

Pay close attention to the RAID setup in the BIOS.  When you setup an array it initializes the array and stores the array config on the drives.  When installing windows and after you have loaded BOTH the additional drivers (rcbottom then rcraid) you will see the RAID volumes and other volumes.  If you do not see the RAID volumes go back to BIOS delete and rebuild the array(s).  

Deviated from DOC by not enabling CSM BOOT.  When done properly one can conform to the new MS UEFI security and still have RAID.

SATA Drive connections in SLOTS 1 & 2 worked.  Had to move the drives to the first two SATA ports on the MB to get RAIDXpert2 config to see the drives even though the MB saw the drives in other slots.  Until moved to port 1 & 2 the drives did not become available in the RAID config utility.

My Raid Setup:

2 X M.2 1tb RAID 0

2 X 6tb SATA RAID 0

*Awaiting parts to convert both RAID0 arrays to RAID10.


My Specs:

MB: ASUS Zennith II Extreme Alpha BIOS: 1402

CPU: AMD Ryzen 3960X

Mem: 64GB Corsair 3600 DDR4

M2: Samsung EVO Pro 1tb x2

SATA: WD Red Pro 6tb x2


For my MSI MEG x570 ACE motherboard and Ryzen 3950x CPU these docs say to use NVMe_CC.

I noticed you said the order matters, but did you need to install the 3rd driver?

The RAID drivers from AMD came with rcbottom, rccfg, and rcraid.

Did you not install rccfg?

Before I found this thread I tried installing each and every driver, NVMe_DID, NVMe_CC and RAID_SATA. I *think* I did try NVMe_CC first in one of the attempts, but I can't be sure at this point.

I'll give it another go and see if the array shows up this time. 

The drives did appear before, but they didn't get grouped together...



Yes. Load the drivers in this order. RcBottom, RcRaid, RcCfg. 

You sir have just saved me MANY hours of trying to figure this out….THANK YOU!!!!!!!

Thank you for this! I am surprised this information is not in the Quick Start guide. That table is definitely required.


yay i’m all up and running! fast too! getting around 7GB/s sequential read/write speeds with crystaldiskmark. i’m very pleased. 

i really wish i had found this sooner

all the answers are within. 

let’s go!
