Thread: SATA on SAS ports causing headaches

  1. #1

    Default SATA on SAS ports causing headaches


    I am struggling to get my GA-x79s-up5-wifi up and running. If I don't connect any drives to the SAS ports it is fine but as soon as I connect one the boot time goes from seconds to about 10 minutes. Also, when a SATA drive is connected to a SAS port the device manager is slow to open and mmc.exe crashes every time I close it.

    I'm assuming that because because I can't find anyone having the same issue I must be missing something obvious but I just can't work it out and after two days of trying to get this thing up and running I'm starting to lose the will to live.

    Has anyone else had any issues like this or can anyone think what I might be missing?

    you'll get more help is you state your specs/hardware.... what drives are you using and in what plugs? what OS? Power Supply? etc...

    SAS is a different beast than SATA, plugs can look the same but it's really up to the controller on how well it will play together... let us know what hardware you are using and we can go from there.

    Main Rig
    OS = Win8.1
    CPU = i7-980X @ 4.17Ghz 144x29 cooled by custom Loop
    Mem = 12GB 2000Mhz corsair Dominator GT at 2010Mhz @ 9-10-9-27-2T
    MB = Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5 v1.0 with F6 Bios - Dead Board
    MB = EVGA X58 Classified3 e770
    GPU = 2x Sapphire r9 290x in xfire
    HD = 4x PNY 120GB Raid 0
    Storage = 2TB WD Black
    PSU = EVGA SuperNOVA 1300w
    Case = Cooler Master HAF-X 945

    HTPC / Home Server
    OS = Win7 64Bit running XBMC HTPC Front end with Windows Server 2011 Virtual Machine with 8GB ram assigned for homer server with exchange
    CPU = AMD 1090T
    Mem = 16GB 1600Mhz Kingston RED Limited Edition running at 1600Mhz
    MB = Gigabyte 790FXTA-UD5
    GPU- EVGA GT210
    HD = too many to count, but about 5TB of storage all together including backup
    PSU = Corsair TX750
    Case = Too embarrassed to mention.
