post #852 of 3170
I have been using Samsung 30nm 1600 RAM (2 sticks) on my ASRock Extreme4 using 2133 11-11-11-28-1T 1.45V DRAM settings with absolute stability. For a time, when I added 2 more sticks for the total of 4, I couldn't get that many stable up to 1.65V DRAM and had to go down to 1866 9-9-9-24-1T 1.5V DRAM, but those extra 2 sticks of RAM are now in my second computer, and I am once again stable at 2133MHz with 8Gigs. Still using BIOS version 1.3 that came stock with my motherboard (1.7 is the most recent version).

I just purchased this board but I'm stuck with installing it. Here is my problem:

I have 4 drives:
A. 120GB Raptor X
B. 2TB
C. 500GB
D. 256 Samsung Extreme SSD ( brand new, never tried it before )


Irregardless of which SATA ports I connect A & B to, they work! However, irregardless of which SATA port I connect C and D to, they are not recognized by the bios!

I've tried mixing and matching the SATA cables, but I'm having absolutely no luck. I'm pretty much stuck here, since my SSD is the one I'm looking to install windows on. Any suggestions? Anyone run into or hear of this problem?

EDIT: To clarify, in the bios... both drive C (which worked a few hours ago on my rig prior to the upgrade) and drive D don't appear as 'plugged in' either, when you go to the system browser.

On the Extreme4 the OS drive should go in Sata 0 (light blue-intel) port.

Just speaking on the SSD, I tried plugging it into the 4 light blue ports. I even tried plugging it into the black ports. In all cases, the drive isn't recognized as being plugged in or detected by the bios.

The same case is for the 500GB drive I know was working before.

what if you just plug the SSD in(or the 500gb drive) so disconnect the other ones. it doesnt recognize them? i guess this is kind of standard but make sure the connectors are properly connected to them tongue.gif have you tried using a different cable/power connector, does the HDD spin up when you boot? use the cable you can confirm working on the other drives on the SSD for example.

Unfortunately I tried all of that, including trying to use a new cable. I'm going to try updated the bios of the mobo, which is currently at 1.20, and updating to 1.70. Hopefully that will make a difference.

I haven't tried listening to the 500GB to see if it spins. I will try that if the bios update doesn't work frown.gif

edit: I'm now at 1.70 and still no HDD

Time to play around with the cables some more... redface.gif

I'm an idiot... the darn power cables were loose! It's so funny when we think we double and triple checked such a basic thing, only to be found wrong.

when you think something is wrong its usually just a little thing ;P anyway glad you got it working smile.gif avoid the SATA 3 A ports(the asmedia controlled ones) just connect your HDD's to the black ports they wont notice a speed difference anyway

Haha very true biggrin.gif

Why avoid the SATA 3 A ports? Is there something wrong with them? I was originally going to hook everythign to the light blue ports, as suggested by an earlier poster and the little sticker on it.
