Could I have bricked my board from BIOS update?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I'm wondering if my mobo could have been bricked from updating the BIOS. After updating the BIOS, I had to reinstall Win7 and it didn't recognize any HDs. I have 4 total HD's (2 different types, 2x320gb RAID0 & 2x2TB). Win7 didnt recognize any and I've installed Win7 on this motherboard and hard drives before with no issues.

The only thing that has changed was BIOS update.

More info on my issues.

Thank you.

Are they recognized in the BIOS? Did you reload Optimized Defaults?

If you can't see them in your BIOS try different sata ports. If you still can't see them on any port check your Sata cables then if not its your mobo, try to flash back if you can or RMA it if unflashable. If your BIOS sees them but Windows doesn't then, I have no idea.

Ok... I figured it out w/ a Gigabyte rep. I just had to setup everything correctly and then UNZIP the sata raid drivers once I did that I was able to install Windows 7 np and OC'd.

And this morning:

Hows it look?

If you don't mind me asking...how are you at 30c on all six cores @ 100% load? At idle and stock clocks/voltages I'm lucky to drop below 38c, with a Corsair H50 and CM R4s doing the cooling.

When you install Windows it says "press F6 to install a third-party SCSI driver or a RAID driver." At least for the future you know! That's good news! 1 lesson learned and now you can help other people out too

Because the Corsair H50 isn't a custom water loop I ordered the H50, same day I ordered it, I ordered a custom loop.

So in short, custom water loop > H50
