just got a Asus ROG (X570) Crosshair VIII Impact, AMD - and every SATA connection i have eventually corrupts the drive or the drive never really is able to be setup. now the BIOS does not even see the drives? first is was one of my small 2.5" SSD, then a week later the second and now it will not see my new 3.5 HDD. the HDD was in the BIOS, i enabled it, went to windows to set it up - it asked if i wanted "MBR or GPT" pinwheeled and now the BIOS cannot see it. never had issues with SATA before. thanks so much

Did you try a different cable? should be a fast test to rule at least that out. Also did you try accessing the drives on a different machine?

thanks for replying turns out it has something to do with the EZ-config which improves RAM performance but breaks the SATA connections. gonna reverse engineer it
