    id try each sata2 port aswell with the dvd drive and try with different sata cable just to rule out faulty cable or port
    will do wazza, you're the best, will play with all that when i get my new memory from Crucial...............i bought 2x8gb of 1600 ram from Microcenter with the board, (along with an i5 3570) , BUTgot home and noticed they weren't a matched KIT..............so, Crucial said they would RMA me a matched pair.

    thanks again !

    Any chance you found a solution to this??? I have the exact same issue and I still haven't solved it!

    I'm thinking this board was a really poor choice!
