HDD's Not Detected

Level 9

I have a z790 Apex Encore. I have two NVME SSD's that work perfectly. I also have two HDD's for storage. 

If I boot into the BIOS the HDD's show up in the BIOS. After I exit the BIOS the HDD's show up in Windows and work perfectly.

But let's say I shut my PC down. The next time I turn my PC on the HDD's no longer show up in Windows.

So in order to access the HDD's I have to boot into the BIOS every single time.

Help!

I updated the BIOS for the Apex Encore and that resolved my issue. I'm still running XMP1 8000

Hi @heyimben 

Are you able to post your full system specs, please?

Also confirm this behaviour is replicable at Optimised Defaults - no XMP/EXPO overclocking.

 

13900KS / 8000 CAS36 / ROG APEX Z790 / ROG TUF RTX 4090

I definitely have xmp1 8000 enabled - that's the beauty of the Apex Encore. That would prevent the HDD's from initializing on boot up?

I don't see how specs matter, as I assume this is just a BIOS setting, but I could be wrong of course:

13900K

1TB NVME SSD, 4TB NVME SSD

4090

2x24gb ram G.Skill

1300w PSU

3x120 AIO

Pretty standard stuff

 It's not "standard" stuff, that's pretty much the point 😄. Whilst the Encore is fantastic at memory overclocking, all overclocks have the potential to be conditional. Hence, you'd be wise to remove overclocking when diagnosing a problem (troubleshooting 101).

8000MT is a heavy OC. Intel max supported frequency in 1 DPC on a 1DPC board is 5600MT. Please clear the CMOS and retest at Optimised Defaults. Update if behaviour is the same
