Adding HD

Recommended Posts

How much trouble (if any) will I encounter when I try to hook-up 2 Maxtor 6L300S0 HD's. I have one installed already. I gues one would install to SATA 1 AND the other to SATA 2

none what so ever so long as you keep them off the unlocked SATA ports (1+2) assuming you overclock.

Adjst the BIOS settings - auto detect should be fine and thats it really.

 

Things get a tad more involved if you plan to RAID them.

Using port 3 right now. When I try using 3&4 it does the same as when I try 1 &2. Boot order is to HD and that works but as soon as I try the 2nd drive nothing

As I stated earlier; check the jumper settings of your new HDD. The NF3 ULTRA-D only supports SATA (1.5Gbps) while most new drives are SATA2 (3.0Gbps) and must be jumpered when they're used on regular SATA ports.
