    Still cannot get the SSD to be seen on the blue ports, system just hangs on the port that the SSD is plugged into. I've updated the firmware on the SSD, and updated my mobo bios to F9M, and changed the SATA cables....still no joy.

    Good luck, I'll keep an eye on this thread incase you have better luck than me.
    I was really glad to see your post. I was also using the ICH10 SATA - and no difference if I used the Vertex 60GB or X25M 80GB drives - I would get the same hangs you did. The blue ports are supposed to be better. Like you I updated the firmware on both SSD's, ran Intel SSD Toolbox on the X25M, etc. Also changed cables with no luck. I RMA'd the board to my eTailer this morning luckily. I will see what happens with the replacement board when I finally get it, in the mean time I've ordered a Classified 760 board which will be here tomorrow. I really wanted the Gigabyte board to work but honestly it is the strangest behaving mobo I've had in the past 10 years or more. Just got a bad one I think.
