Check your Sata cables. Maybe they are bent too much in certain points. From time to time I have also having such "problems". Check plugs of your sata cables if they are inserted firmly to sata port in your HDDs' and on your MOBO.
Change your RAID controller from jmicron to SB750 Raid controller. It may help you.

Remember about AHCI or RAID drivers (usually installed during WIN 7 installation) but IIRC AHCI drivers could be installed afterwards (I mean ... after you install your OS).

There is one menu "On CHIP ATA Devices"> "On CHIP SATA Controller"> "RAID Mode" IDE/AHCI/RAID

So is it that one? The RAID Mode that should be AHCI?

Just the strangest thing is that the registry value is correct for the AHCI execution as the Start value is 0, even though my RAID Mode setting in BIOS are set as IDE and not AHCI.

I cant find where to change raid controller. under what category is it?
One more thing. the two blue sata ports that belong to jmicron. are those strictly for hdd raid? i have my dvd burner and esata ports connected to them since i ran out of normal ports.

Main Memory

• Supports four unbuffered DIMM of 1.5 Volt DDR3 800/1066/1333/1600*/1800*/2133* (OC) DRAM, 16GB Max

http://se.msi.com/product/mb/790FX-GD70.html#/?div=Detail

Does the board support 1600 Mhz and above memory?
post #9465 of 9641
If MSI says upto 2133, then it can run at this frequency. But memory overclocking is mostly depend on the strength of IMC (Integrated Memory Controller) of CPU. As far as I know that generally, no one has ever been able to run more than 1800mhz with Phenom II X4 CPUs. X6 CPUs have newer IMC over X4 and it can run at those high frequency. All you need is to find a low voltage high frequency say 1.5v 1866/2133 type memory. You might need to overclock CPU-NB to 3Ghz or more as well. Memory overclocking is not bad with this mobo. I have seen adata 1333 cl9 overclocked to 1700 cl8 on this mobo. I have done it myself. But stability can not be guaranteed because of having low phases.

Every time I hibernate, the computer turns itself on one second after. Anything I can do to fix this?
post #9467 of 9641
Have a thread regarding this, but will try here since it's this mobo:

Just finished the watercool setup and had my PC running.
The components felt hot from the start.
Could be that I even watercooled the mosfet too this time.
Only managed to see the GPU temps.
Idle was strange. Jumping around from 50 C  after 15+ minutes to slightly over 60 C within this time.
I ran a game for a minute, temps over 73 C.
Played some minutes more, screen turned black.

PC doesn't start, LED lights on keyboard don't light up.
No boot sound...
Motherboard LED lights are OK, and my only fan works.

What could have failed? CPU, GPU or something else?

The loop ran as: CPU>mosfet>NB>GPU to radiator.

This sounds like you fried your VRMs. It might be that your MOSFET block was not mounted correctly or was not in full contact with the VRMs. Did you smell anything burning?

The NB wasn't mounted correctly. Might be that. Mosfet was good, used the Anfi one, made for this board.
