that is the thing. i am not entirely sure what needs to be set to auto or manual or none. The manual states IDE should be left on Auto, though i did not know that. I am using the Second PCIe(Black) slot, but i had it on 16xup16xdown. Then there is 5xHT . I am not sure what that does. i am guessing hyper-transfer bandwidth or frequency maybe. ill give it another go shortly.
Also if anyone recommends not using the same surge suppressor as the one this pc is plugged into , do let me know please.
