Unreliable on my system (GA-71x mother board)

By: Bodger - 07/08/2021
Adapter appears to work Ok at first at first, but subjects system to crashes at random intervals thereafter. Bios set to auto detect IDE connection PIO mode and UDMA- these are default settings for the BIOS (Award) Protruding "ears" prevented location in Master IDE slot- ( Interfears with smoothing capacitors on mother board) Had to use secondary IDE socket for test run to miss obstruction
