Nice little board apart from some niggles, these been. Using e and 3gb ram and a Nvidia GTX with a watts power supply and windows 7 64bit. I use several different flash drives with different configs for testing. I also tried swapping RAM from my other systems and they’re all the same. Couldn’t install windows 7 on an ssd with more than 2gb ram installed Also as a budget board I didn’t expect a large overclocking headroom, and this is what I got.

I ask that because I know some devices have their own controllers which can conflict with the onboard ones. What our customers say about us 4. Please enter the text in the following text field. But aside from the USB thing, this board rocks! I removed the hard drive from the enclosure and ran it through one of my SATA ports. I cut and pasted this from what I said in the forums. I think it runs SATA 3. Copyright c Tweak Town Pty Ltd.
I think only 5 people posted this issue over the internet.
Booting off with the same hard drive in my Laptop takes 2 mins. Sata ports are poorly positioned. I also have other Enclosures here and tried those, it is still slow. Ask a question Compare. I don’t know about the rev 2. I also tried disabling the USB 2. There is in fact, as Bob says below, a chipset limitation.
Booting off from an osx86 dvd but placed on an external hdd is so slow. Cipset both have ICH7, if than even matters.
If this is normal, I guess that’s what I get for what I pay for. It works fine except for one thing — USB speed booting off of the flash drives. Tried other NON-beta releases and all are the same. I hope I get news from gigabyte. So I tried an enclosure of a 3. Sturdy platform, plus micro atx, so in a atx case lots of room to store caboles.

Hmm, is there a jumper on the back of the drive? I got the 1. This is the most interesting part.

It seems ok, just like a normal hdd. This cutting-edge processor offers significant performance boosts and provides an overall more energy efficient platform.
Lovely little board little being the operative word – I did not know this was a micro ATX board! They haven’t replied yet.
