It seems the eSata ports on our boards are controlled via a Marvell 9172 controller. (I swore I knew this, must have slipped my mind).

So, it seems keeping the eSata mode set to AHCI is correct and will support port multiplication as well as hot swapping.

HOWEVER! Windows uses the default AHCI driver for the Marvell controller which uses the controller as a "internal" sata connection.

Installing the Marvell driver seems to solve all that ails us.

Download it HERE

I installed the driver and my external setup is now correctly recognized as a removable device and is instantly detected, where as before I had to power cycle the unit to mount the device.

It fixed my problems, I hope it adds port multiplication to the equation as well.

Good stuff! I will upgrade the driver when I get home and let you know how awesome you are!

I look at it like this, if you aren't overclocking or plan on using the original hsf then you won't be able to run enough voltage to overheat the vrms as your cpu temp will be at it's ceiling. If you do get an aftermarket cooler, then you can take the amd fan from the old hsf and use it as a spot fan. I think though, as long as the case has good airflow it shouldn't be a problem. I have seen many without spot fans running decently high voltages and I have seen many using spot fans, but I don't think anyone has had to go aftermarket on them.

I think you might have overlooked that he is using a 990fxa-D3. Which does not have a VRM cooler...



But I would, for the most part, still stick by what Ultracrapet said.

That board only has a 4x1 power phase scheme. I would NOT even attempt to overclock on that board. And where as the VRMs will get hot if the system is used full load, if a high temp situation is encountered the bios will throttle.

According to the Cpu Support List for that board, the 8350 is supported via the F8 bios.

So bottom line... don't worry about a heat-sink... But don't push the clocks anywhere. thumb.gif

Thanks -
The board will be running at stock clocks . I have not sorted a cooler yet (She is looking for a fairly quiet machine ) Case is an Antec Solo II . ( I get to build PCs for nearly all of my family - such fun )

Which driver am I replacing?

I have 3 Storage Controllers, and you only have 2 in your device manager.

Look under your "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers" ... the will probably be a "Standard Sata AHCI controller" ... maybe two... they should both be Marvell controllers as you use 2 controllers on your board.

If anyone can help I have a UD3 rev 1.1 and i need help flashing my BIOS. It says there aren't any files on my flash drive, however i've got the F9 update files on the drive. Any help? Also, posted a thread on this earlier. As well as this, I don't see my HDD showing up on My Computer. It only shows my SSD (which is on the primary sata slot) and my optical drive.

Thanks for the quick reply. I didn't mean to take so long to respond, but its taken me this long to make it work.
You were completely correct on the fix. I have just been having problems as the Marvell Driver 1.1 kept installing, and to make this work I had to manually pick the 1.2 driver (1.2.0.1002). Driver 1.2 is actually 3 weeks newer then the 1.1 driver.


Thanks for your help!

EDIT:
BTW, I now have 5 devices under Storage Controllers in Device Manager. That just seems like a lot for not using any add on cards/straight from the MB.

Well there you have it. I have now seen Win 8 BSOD for the first time. Its failing on these 1.2 drivers....
