Jumped in to that one a little too quickly. Awaiting an update on the Sniper 2 bios or a method for downgrading back to F5. U1A looking great so far, just missing some important features and a lot of issues with boot stability (hanging on POST).
If you already have the drive plug it in and see how it is detected. From what I know I believe only the second half of the x58 series added support for 3tb+ drives. So EX58 does not support but X58A does. So anything older then X58A does not support 3tb+. Someone can correct me if I am wrong.
If you want to use the drive as a storage drive (not a OS boot drive) you could just partition the drive in half (1.5TB each) or 1 partition have 2tb second have 1tb and then you can have all 3tb.

Any news for a flashtool that allows flasing back to award, to restore full functionality for z68? Or new bios uefi?
