After searching the web for answers and asking Gigabyte about our storage problems with the Gigabyte P965-DS3P, we finally found a fix. Since we still have a pair of 160 GB Hitachi Deskstar 7K160 and Western Digital Caviar SE 1600AJS in our labs, we've decided to take for a spin on Intel's ICH8R to see how it compares to J-Micron's controller.Check it out at Tech Hounds.

Tech Hounds has completed another article. After talking to Gigabyte's rep and obtaining a fix for the ICH8R & Marvell EEPROM problem, they took a pair of 160 GB Hitachi Deskstar and Western Digital Caviar SE drivers for some additional testing with ICH8R.
