Mobo:GA-MA785GT-UD3H (rev. 1.0) and HDD-Sata3:WD10EARX Issue Tags: Hard Drives BIOS Storage Last response: June 2, 2012 8:35 AM in Storage Share romanoone June 1, 2012 7:03:57 PM My PC: Model Name : GA-MA785GT-UD3H(rev. 1.0) -------------------------- M/B Rev : 1.0 BIOS Ver : F8 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- VGA Brand : PowerColor Model : HD5770 CPU Brand : AMD Model : Phenom II x4 Speed : 2800 Operation System : Win 7 32-bit SP1 Memory Brand : Type : DDR3 Memory Size : 2x1GB Speed : 1600 Power Supply : 660 W Hi all, I've just installed new HDD-Sata3-6Gb/s-Buffer:64Mb(WD10EARX, 1TB). The Bios just recognize my new HDD 1.5Gb/s(Capabilities) while setting RAID. This is a picture of Gigabyte manual, and the description-part is my problem. I tried on jumper setting of my new Sata3-HDD(WD) to set it down with 3Gb/s but the Bios just recognized 1.5Gb/s, too. I used the other official SATA cable. No change. And my older HHD-Sata2-3Gb/s-Buffer:16Mb(SeaGate, 320Gb) still recognize this HDD-SeaGate 3.0Gb/s(Capabilities) while setting RAID. I've bench my new HDD Sata 3 with HD Tune Pro. It seems so-so performance. I thought our Bios could not recognize new-kind Sata3 or the mobo's south-chipset SB 710 could not recognize Sata3? Could you please make a discussion for this my issue? Thanks Regard. More about : mobo ma785gt ud3h rev hdd sata3 wd10earx issue Dereck47 a c 539 G Storage June 1, 2012 9:09:07 PM Hard drives cannot spin fast enough to achieve SATA 3 (6Gb/s) speeds. The drive can briefly (milliseconds) get SATA 3 speeds from data that's in the cache buffer (in your case the 64MB cache). Your drive can Read/Write at sustained speeds of only 110MB/s. So your HD Tune results appear to be normal. Here a link to the spec sheet of your drive: http://www.wdc.com/wdproducts/library/SpecSheet/ENG/287... m 0 l romanoone June 2, 2012 8:35:48 AM Thanks for taking a glance at my post. The goal i need to get is, why my mobo can't recognize my new WD-HDD-Sata3 as Sata 3G(see the picture i posted) but Sata 1.5G . I really need my mobo recognize recognize my new HDD as 3Gb/s(Capabilities) while setting RAID, not Sata1.5G . Could you please discuss more... Thanks. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
