just assembled my new pc, everything kinda works, but i cant see my samsung f3 , mb is Asus M4A89GTD PRO/USB3

at the beginnig there were a bit of clicking sound from hdd, could it be broken ?

stupid question, but theres only 2 wires (1st sata for me :D  )

when i added my dead/half dead ide hdd it at least tried to work, but my nw hdd does absolutly nothing, except for making a clicking sound for a bit

Clicking sounds could signal a broken HD. Before I would call it dead I would try a few things.

Do you have a SATA dvd player? If bios can see that it would confirm that your mobo works.

Try a different SATA cable in a different SATA port on the mobo and a different power cable off your PSU. You do all that and the mobo still doesn't see it I would RMA the HD cause it's dead..
