I just upgraded to the R3F from the P6TD V1, really love the aesthetics of this board along with it's many features, even though I probably won't fully utilise many of them.

My Patriot SSD and the WD raptor work just fine. Any idea how to get them working? Cabling?
I've got 4 HDD's at the moment, an OCZ Vertex 2 SSD as OS drive. a Seagate Barracuda ST32000641AS 2TB SATA3, a Seagate 1TB SATA2 and 500GB SATA2. All HDD's were detected and working well. I've got the SSD, 1TB and 500GB drives hooked up to the SATA2 ports and the 2TB on the Marvell SATA3 port. Also I set a couple of options in bios:
Main -> Storage Configuration -> Configure SATA as 'AHCI'
Advanced -> Onboard Device Configuration -> Onboard SATA6G Controller: AHCI
Also I disabled the "Onboard SATA controller" as that's the JMicron JB36X controller and I haven't noticed any difference disabling it except for it got rid of the JMicron screen on bootup.
