Power HDD from PSU with data cable disconnected = drives spin up (but not detected because no data connection)
Power HDD from psu with data cable connected then once in bios pull power cable and reconnect = drives spin up then if reset (no power loss) drives detected in bios fine
Tried F3 bios (original one of the baord) and now im using F5q (latest) both exhibit the same issue
Drives are both Samsung 1TB HD103S
POST code reads A2 while taking forever to get into BIOS (when drives are detected instantly from another psu powering them bios is instant almost)
Seasonic 760W PSU
16GB Corsair 2400Mhz vengeance pro
This issue does not affect my SSDs OCZ Vertex 2e 60gb/kingston hyperx 3k 120gb/crucial m4 256gb
not sure wth is causing thing, never had this issue on my old i7 950/asus r3gene with same psu/drives, any help would be sweet because this sucks.
