Thanks for all your help. as i said before i cant use the black sata ports they are all used up.

I want to use the blue sata ports as individual drives, ill explain

I have 2tb Hitachi SATA2 and 500gb Samsung SATA2, when i put the jmicron Raid controller into JBOD mode i could see the hitachi drive however i couldnt assign a drive letter to the samsung.

If i put the raid controller into normal mode then i only see one of the drive.

Im sure you can see them as individual drives. Its very confusing.

Someone on here must have done this, again thanks for all your help, its most appreciated.

Guys, ive just put it into JBOD mode, i can see the 2tb drive in disk mangement and windows explorer however the 500gb only been seen in disk mangement when i right click on the 500gb drive to setup the hdd all the options are greyed out.

I think im nearly there, in device manager under storage controllers i see a au4y90a9 ide controller, does that look correct

Im a total newb at this, thanks all

No idea, you might not be able to use it individually because it IS a dedicated RAID controller. How it is, we dont know, being a certified POS controller, but IDK man. I have NEVER tried using them on my rig. Try that same hdd that you cant use in the other slot all my itself, or swap them? Does it still happen to the 2tb disk when the 500 is in the working slot?

again, these are Jmicron Raid sata ports; AFAIK individual HDD;s for boot/storage cant be done..

if you just need it for storage why not use the e-sata port at the back panel.. smile.gif

Ok I been trying to get my proc to 4.0 ghz and I can't. I just keep getting the bsod... I only set my multi to x20 and my voltage from 1.45 to 1.5 with no luck. My ram is set to 1:4 at 1600 mhz. Any suggestions and settings that worked for you guys will be greatly appreciated.

BSOD is usually RAM related. MAjor CPU instability could cause RAM to error obviously, but if you are stable 3.8 and BSOD at 4.0, then I suspect RAM issue. Start off with max voltage they can handle, and stock timings. I got my RAM 1600 stable by boosting drive strengths +1 to 2 notches, w/e the measurement of each is, I don't recall now, lol.

Thx for the reply... well my g.skill ram stock is the 9-9-9-24 @ 1600mhz @ 1.65v. You think I should bump up the stock voltage? to say 1.7?

Guys,

I did a complete clean yesterday of my system, i gonna rebuild my OS again, havent got much stuff installed anyway.

I got a feeling the the win7 disk management aint that great, once i install from fresh ill see what happens. I know for def the raid controller can be put into JBOD mode, so it should allow to setup both drives as one large one or two individual drives.

Once i get windows, drivers, updates all sorted, im gonna try a more powerful disk management tool and see if i can get the other drive to work correctly.

Its a shame really whats the point of including the extra ports if you i cant use them individually, dumb really. I do have to admit this is one of the best boards i own.

I dont know anything about overclocking but somehow, ive managed to get 4.0Ghz on my phenom2 965 with alittle volt increase and multi change and run my ram easily at 1600 1t as well as nb2800 htt2600 easily.

Maybe i got lucky with the right combination of PSU and mobo, as its been solid for about a 1.5yr no problems.

I will report back my findings, thanks for helping, if anyone could shed any light on the subject, itd be most appreciated.

Drop that htt back to stock, 2 ghz, you dont need to increase that one bit, theres actually performance loss at that freq. The RAID controller is dedicated RAID, its not supposed to work in individual disk mode. If you need more sata, get a 32-bit, PCI sata controller. To be serious, its probably best bet.

Guys,

I did it, i figured it out, disk mangement dont create a mbr instead create a gpt.

Once you do this then i created 2 simple volumes at any size vola hey presto i now have 2 individual drives at the correct size.

When you create the gpt your drives will be combined into one large drive you then can do what you want, eg strip, raid, simple volumes.

Man im good, i basically created a simple volume at 2tb and another for 500gb.

I even installed the jmicron drivers before i did it, now come to think of it you dont need to.

Well i hope this helps someone else.
