    I think the 6GB/s Seagate starts with 2TB - 1TBs are all 3GB/s

    what is the specific model name of your Seagate HDD? and the firmware on the HDD as well?

    sounds like a compatibility issue then - if it's set in the bios it should work!

    got latest bios?

    you can email Asus but my experience is you're better off here, or on www.asusrog.com.
