Go into your device manager and then network card properties | power management | disable wake on pattern match

They won't work if they are plugged into the cpu fan port or cpu_opt ports. You can adjust them if you run them to one of the other ports with a splitter. PWM fans (4-pin) are best for CPU coolers, not 3 pin.

I am having issues with two external seagate drive which hold my home theater stuff... they keep disappearing when I plug them into the USB 3.0 or 2.0 slots. The drivers all seem to be updated- as I did that best I could. I am using my old Thermaltake 750W PSU from my previous build. This ran for about 5 years roughly 24/7. The case is up and running fine- maybe dim- could this be time to switch the PSU or would the whole gig just crap out if it was dying to begin with?
Are they disappearing on plugin or after reboot?
If it is after reboot/shutdown try this : http://www.overclock.net/t/1246595/official-asus-sabertooth-z77-owners-thread-club/4590_30#post_19160309
How old are the drives? Are they clicking? It is pretty normal for externals to run hot unless they are in a custom enclosure.
i'm not really a big gamer, but wouldn't consider myself a beginner and a build like this. Just haven't done one since my last one a few years ago.
Any ideas what might be causing this? The HDD temps are also reading very high if anyone wants to take a stab at that.[/quote]
