  1. Try a new cable. Otherwise you might want to RMA that board.
  2. Have you tried swapping SATA cables?
  3. Do you have the voltage of the CPU and memory correct?
    Do you have the FSB and memory ratio correct?
    I had to manually enter the correct values on my motherboard.
    Your system may not be fully stable until these values are correct.
  4. i tried a diferent cable , i think ill RMA tis board
