Thread: GA-X58A-UD3R rev 1.0 Sata3 stops working




  1. #1

    Default GA-X58A-UD3R rev 1.0 Sata3 stops working

    GA-X58A-UD3R rev 1 running 7f bios
    i7-930
    cheap low-power graphics card.
    12 GB OCZ memory (details if needed)
    12 disks, varying manufacturer
    Antec 1200 case
    Antec 650watts.
    Fedora 14

    Problem: After moderate use, the disks attached to the SATA 3 on-board pair suddenly drop out and are no longer accessible. Eg, can copy 70 to 300 GBytes to the disk pair, and it will then stop responding. Sample linux dmesg error message(repeated hundreds of times):
    Code:
    [ 1847.802644] sd 7:0:0:0: [sdh] Unhandled error code
    [ 1847.802645] sd 7:0:0:0: [sdh] Result: hostbyte=DID_BAD_TARGET driverbyte=DRIVER_OK
    [ 1847.802648] sd 7:0:0:0: [sdh] CDB: Write(10): 2a 00 13 74 fc 3f 00 04 00 00
    [ 1847.802653] end_request: I/O error, dev sdh, sector 326433855
    All disks are set up as AHCI. All are single disk to the motherboard, but most are running as linux software raid 0 pairs at the OS level (with both disks in the pair attached to the two Sata3 ports in the problem cases).

    Not likely a physical disk problem - occurs with a pair of Hitachi 2TB disks and with a pair of Seagate 2TB disks, both pairs of which work fine when connected to other SATA connections (either onboard, or pci-ex1 card).

    I get the same behavior using initial BIOS or latest (7f) BIOS. Currently running without overclocking while investigating this (normally a mild overclock to 3.2 GHz). Same behavior with both Fedora 13 and 14.

    I don't need the speed of SATA3, just the SATA connections

    On a related note - is it the case that all problems with onboard ethernet are solved with the latest BIOS? When I first put together the system months ago, I had to add a PCIe x1 ethernet card since the onboard port would eventually fail if subjected to long-term 900+ mbps transfers. If the ethernet is fixed, I would feel better about adding more PCIe-x1 cards to substitute for the non-working SATA3.

    are you using latest drivers? sata3 ports cant handle raid very well though,you would be better off using intel ports due to poor drivers,there fine in single disk mode

    Thanks, but as far as I know the sata 3 drivers have absolutely no knowledge that they are being used in a raid, so that shouldn't be the problem (linux software raid is at a higher level).

    I don't know of any later linux drivers other than what is in Fedora 14.

    As I said, I can add another pcie-x1 card if I have to, but I'm trying to see if I can avoid that. One reason is I don't know enough about bandwidth constraints on the PCIe busses. I'd end up with my graphics card (very basic), Gigabit ethernet card, 2 internal SATA pcie-x1 cards (to get up to my 12 internal disks), and an e-SATA pcie-x1 card all on the two PCIe busses.

    I've noted this is possible with single drives on the Marvell controller, so that's the problem as I see it.

    I'm sorry, can you clarify for us newbies:

    • What is "this" that is possible with single drives on the Marvell controller?
    • What is the problem as you see it?

    Please and Thanks

    Sometimes you can cause the controller to freeze or drop a drive, more often with RAID as it's not suggested to be used with marvell controller, but single drives can cause this as well.

    It happens more often if you use the Marvell drivers as well, so if you want to use the Marvell ports do not install the Marvell drivers (Magni Console driver is fine to install, to shut up the device manager), it's the actual marvell mv91xx drive drivers that can hang (Aside from the controller itself under heavy load)
