2) I have a 6gbps hdd connected to the sata3 port on the marvell controller but on bootup it shows only 3gbps. I can't figure out why. Any ideas?
1) leave it on auto its safer
2) did you use the gray sata cable that came with the mobo?? its the one that supports 6gbps transfers

hope this helps

Did you do your install on to your SATA III disc? or are you planning on making the SATA III disc a boot disc? You need to do the install and everything with it connected to the SATA II port and then afterwards connect it to the SATA III. To be honest though a standard HDD isn't fast enough to utilize the whole speed of SATA II so its almost pointless to connect it to a SATA III port. The only thing that can really benefit from a SATA III at the moment is SSD's and maybe some SCSI drives at 15k RPM's and maybe a velociraptor but even those aren't maxed out on a SATA II.

just out of curiosity do you have any jumpers on the drive?? cause i ran in to this same problem. jumper on pins 3 and 6 forces it on 3gbps mode no jumper makes it 6gbps mode. just a thought

i know this cause i have the exact same drive as you for my storage

Hi,

This is my first build in a number of years & just had to build it rather than buy a Dell or some other PC store. I ordered the parts Last Mon & they arrived on Fri. I had it assembled with in 2 hrs minus the video card & the SSD.

I was going to get the HAF 932 & P6X58D Premium, but saw newer models available along with the HAF-X.


I received the video card; a EVGA 480 ( not super clocked) Sat. & the SSD came this past Mon. I was able to install the OS; Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit.


More pictures to follow...

I ran across a tid-bit that might help...

Some have said that the earlier version of the SATA III WD blacks need a firmware update to work as SATA III.
