Hey all,
Just wanted to make my first post to kinda introduce myself to everyone.
I just got my new board burned in as of yesterday and am surfing for the first time today.
My SSD runs a whole lot faster at SATA3, which is why I made to switch.
One of the things I'm gonna have to get used to with my new board is the speed
at which it now boots. I have less than 2 sec. to hit the delete key to enter the bios!
I'm looking forward to sharing with all of you and learning as well.
Regards to all,
FX 6100/3.3GHz, GA-970a-UD3/F5g, 8GB/1600MHz, Crucial C300 SSD-7pro64, 700w SilentPro, EVGA-GTX470/1900X1080 on Samsung 42" LED, Water cooled ATCS-840

Hi Dave and welcome onboard.
Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.
