GIGABYTE Releases 6 Series SATA Check Utility

GIGABYTE Releases 6 Series SATA Check Utility

GIGABYTE today published an application for checking SATA performance of motherboards with Intel’s 6-series chipsets.

The news of the SATA 2.0 issues with Intel 6-series chipsets has sparked a lot of uncertainty about how this will affect those who have upgraded to the new Sandy Bridge architecture. Essentially, if one or two SATA devices are used, then this chipset issue will not affect the motherboard at all - because all devices can be connected to the two white SATA 3.0 ports that are downwards compatible.

However, if three or more SATA devices are used, they should be prioritized. Important devices (e.g. hard drive with your operating system) should be connected to the white SATA 3.0 ports while the less important devices (e.g. a DVD ROM) should be placed on the Intel PCH SATA 2.0 ports.

To help our customers optimize SATA performance on their 6 series motherboards, GIGABYTE has created an easy to use utility called The GIGABYTE 6 Series SATA Check, which tells the customer if the SATA ports that are in use are in fact the affected Intel PCH SATA 2.0 ports. The software cannot analyze if the motherboard is affected by the SATA 2.0 issue, which could affect less than 5 percent of the chipsets during the next three years, as Intel said.

The software will primarily analyze if SATA 2.0 ports are in use and suggest changing SATA devices to the white SATA 3.0 ports. The utility is a simple program that will work on any 6 series chipset based motherboard, and has three possible scenarios that offer different advice for users to configure their SATA devices. 

Please copy this utility to your P67/H67 system’s Windows desktop, unzip, and double click the "67sfck.exe"-file. 

 


The 1st scenario shows there are no devices connected to the affected Intel PCH SATA 2.0 ports, and the utility will let you know that your "SATA configuration (is) OK". 

 


The 2nd scenario shows that your devices are all connected to the affected Intel PCH SATA 2.0 ports, and the utility will advise you to "(Please) move 1 or 2 devices from (the) Intel PCH SATA 2.0 ports to the free SATA 3.0 ports".


The 3rd scenario shows, you have devices connected to the affected Intel PCH SATA 2.0 ports as well as having the SATA 3.0 ports populated. In this case the utility will advice you that the "Use of (the) Intel PCH SATA 2.0 ports is not recommended".

The GIGABYTE 6 Series SATA Check utility will be available for download at the GIGABYTE website shortly.
