    Well it seems like i was wrong, the problem wasn`t solved. I emailed the store where i got it from but no response so far, i guess i`l have to wait untill monday i think there`s nothing else to blame except the hdd.

    Ya, that is kinda what I was thinking. Sometimes firmware just is broke, as is certain aspects of a HD no matter what you do.

    Get a Seagate I say!!!

    Never tested the other PSU then eh? Can you maybe go to a friends and bring your system and test his PSU with it to be sure it isnt the PSU? Although I do not see many issues such as this caused by a PSU, you never know stranger things have happened. But I would most likely think it is a actual Drive issue

    Seems like a known issue, I see a few places where people suggest IDE mode only for these drives

    Well it seems like IDE or not it`s the same issue. I can`t get a PSU from any of my friends because they have older systems with PSU like my old one and frankly i`m afraid to put that oldie in my system. I`ll wait till monday and see what they have to say it seems like my hdd has a bad firmware.I saw a few guys complaining about the drivers used. Those from intel gave them slower speeds than the ones from the motherboards`s site.

    Those drivers from Intel and Gigabyte site are one in the same, both sites may have different versions at the time is all but they are both indeed straight from Intel.

    I often see GA site is behind or ahead (?) of Intel with the Intel Inf Installer package, so I assume SATA drivers versions would likely differ at both in the same manner, but they are both Intel made and GA does nothing to them except re-host them

    I guess you`re right, i`ll talk to the guys where i bought it from and see if they`ll take it back run some tests burn it and give me a brand new and better one if not i`ll sell it lose some money and buy a brand new better one and that`s that.
