Advanced Format HDD and onboard RAID controller

Question asked by quwy on Dec 27, 2016

Hi all. After creating of RAID5 array on the my system, based on the AMD970+SB950 chipset, I noticed what RAIDXpert say about 512-byte sectors on the my physical HDDs. But my drives uses Advanced Format and one physical sector contain 4096 bytes.


Also I see 512-bytes sectors on the stand-alone SSD, which connected to this controller, but does not assigned to any array.


Is this mean what my HDDs and SSD works in the compatibility mode with performance degrade? Can I force 4096-bytes sectors usage?
