ASUS P8P67 Pro Motherboard Marvel Problem

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I tried out the Marvel port on my P8P67 Pro motherboard yesterday with my WD Black HDD. It worked fine for a few hours but it was slowly making my HDD slower. It eventually caused my HDD to read, then wait a few secs, then read again. After about 4-5 hours, my HDD pretty much didnt work, as it would read for 2-3 secs then stop for 2min before reading again. I thought my hard drive was dieing or something, so i ran some windows boot diagnostics(or w/e it's called). That didn't work so i hoped that if i put it back to the Intel chipset Sata6GB/s it would work like it did before. After i switched it back, it worked fine again.

Is this a problem with my motherboard, or just a driver issue?

Hmm... very odd.

Do you have the newest B3 rev? I can't remember if both B1 and B2 were affected, or if it's just B2, but either way I know that the B2 has VERY VERY buggy SATA 3GB ports. Extensive use can and WILL kill them.

If you don't have a B3 rev, call Asus and demand an advanced RMA on your board for a new B3 Rev. They're always very helpful and will gladly agree.

The marvel controller is not affected by the P67 chipset degradation issue.

Bench the drive on different controllers and check the SMART status. Try another computer as well to verify there isn't something else amuck.

I have Rev. B3 so i new that wasn't the problem. What sort of benches should i run? What should i use to check the smart status? Should i plug my HDD into another computer and test it?

Just run a HDtune or PassMark real quick and see if you get errors.

Why not test it in another computer? Troubleshooting is all about seeing what is broken, using a different computer/cable can help pinpoint the problem.

I have HD Tune, but what should i run in it? And i don't know about testing on another computer, as my family only has laptops except me.

It appears that the marvel controllers are less than perfect. They add insane levels of dpc latencies on BluRay players if you dont have a disk in it: http://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtop...?f=8&t=1141821. Frankly this is the reason why I went for Gigabyte this time, as DPC latencies are very important for me (for audio usage. new mobo on the way).

It may not be related at all but no matter, when people start recommending avoiding certain slots on a mobo I get cranky.
