Please Help! Force 3 SSD 240GB shows as SCSI

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello All - So I'm hoping I can get some help as I've searched around a bit with but can't seem to figure this one out.

I just installed Windows 7 on a Force 3 SSD, 240GB. It's Running on an Asus Sabertooth mobo with an intel i7 3820.

I noticed that device manager is showing the SSD as a SCSI device. I have it plugged into the 6g Intel sata port (top brown connector) and it is definitely using a 6g sata wire.

Any thoughts?

Yes I believe so, because I did not have to switch it as it was already set by default in bios.

It is fine, I think it is just the driver you have installed. I think because the X79 SATA driver is usually a Enterprise driver from Intel atm that is why it shows up as SCSI.

Thanks for the reply. After more research it appears that you are correct. Hopefully this helps if anyone else notices the same thing and is having the same problem.
