Sata 3 cable up in smoke ! ASRock Extreme 4 p67 Gen 3

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
What do you guys make of this ?
This was the first time plugging a drive into one of the intel sata 3 ports on my ASRock Extreme 4 p67 Gen 3 board.
I had intended to just pull a few files off my wifes old laptop hard drive (which had been working without issue up until last night when I replaced it with an SSD). I hooked it up to the power supply and used one of the included sata3 cables that came with the board and almost instantly after powering on the system there was smoke pouring out and the sata3 cable was melting !

Now I'm scared to try the HD on another port in case that cable burns up ... and I'm not to keen on sticking my new ssd into one of the sata 3 ports...
What do you guys think ? Bizarre HD failure ? horribly defective sata cable ? or epic failure of the intel sata 3 port(s) ?

not sure if the image will be viewable, but

Wow, that would take some serious current to do that to a sata cable. My guess is a faulty motherboard, send ot back, sounds like there is an issue with the Serial ATA voltage regulations.

It is a short out.

take an old drive(dvd) or old hd and try again just ensure you dont want the drive incase it dies.... but it does sound like a board problem

The picture isn't worth uploading again, just a black sata cable melted out at either end. Tried again with a new cable, and the system would shut down immediately after trying to power it on and would remain unresponsive until the cable/drive was removed.
Already got an RMA setup and the board's been shipped back to ASRock.
