P55-UD3R, and you said that you cant afford a 2tb harddrive
I have a Seagate 1tb external drive too, same issue. Works great, but clicks like a mofo.
Anyway, AFAIK, seagate offer a data recovery service if your drive has to be RMA'd. They charge you for it, but thats probably your best option.
Mine was free.
Mine was solely on the motherboard. The drive has no malfunctions of its own that i know of. I find it kinda hard to believe it was just cause the slot but oh well, as long as it works right
Whats your maping of the sata's in Bios? I found that with ACHI, if you install a non SSD, normal hdd, in the first two sata ports (0/1), then the hdd will have a clicking noise to it since it's trying to get data from it faster then it's set up to do.
I tried it since I went to the Raven case. But, since I first heard the clicking:
the SSD is in 0
Hdd's in 2/3
Opticial in 4
In all, I'm glad you got it working man!
I had the drives in 2 and 3. As in drives i mean 1tb and 2tb Seagates. Ive had my dual 1tb drives in those slots since ive had the board but it just went bonkers on me so i moved both drives to 4 and 5 which have never been used.
Im glad too cause i was seriously going nuts. First that, then the citation fine Now all i gotta do is fix the fine.
It is strange.. I'll have my system back up come tonight when I get my 5870 back in.. I'll try and hear for clicking since I got a seagate 1.5tb that started it when it was stationed in port 1..
Did you update the bios to A51 (I think its 51, might be 56) yet? I haven't since I haven't felt the need to..
I havent updated anything really since i got this thing. Havent felt the need either.
Edit: Just updated the bios. It has an over 200 bsclck setting now. Idk if we could get higher OCs with that or not though. I capped around 220.
my seagate clicks too intermittenly. I blame gigabyte. I stuck a known good drive on this motherboard and it started clicking too. GAH! It's like the motherboard is overclocking the harddrive. Lol?
is that really your PC in your system specs?
Cheap PCI-e controller card and you are off and running again.
@brandon: well it's one of my PC's and my favorite and most beloved. I think Leo LaPorte would agree. That antec case alone is a conversational piece. When it was introduced Antec had a picture of a 6ft tall dude standing on it. It weights about 70lbs and it's built like a tank. Best of all it costed me only $89 in 1998 and it came with antec server grade power supply. hehe.
ok back on the subject.
@steevo: well I can buy a pci-e controller for $79 or I can buy a full p45 + ich10r motherboard for $79 and ditch this POS fry's freebie gigabyte g41 no ahci crap.
im really surprised someone around here knows who Leo LaPorte is
I taught him everything he knows.
I loved the Screen Savers and Call for Help, when G4 TV was known as Ziff Davis TV- ZD TV then Tech TV.
I also own a case from the Early 2000s, and its built like a tank, wish Antec would make the same case but it being wider, having more cooling, and more 3.5 internal, more than 7 PCI Expansion slots and more 5.25 slots. Overall Taller, Wider and Longer.
Yea i thought about that. It dosent need to boot but damn thats a killer on cable management for me
