Hi Stephen,

What Nvidia chipset did you have a problem with? My sister's myth box
has an Asus M3n78-pro mobo with a GeForce 8300 chipset. It has been
supporting 3 3TB sata III drives for a few years and I'm planning on
swapping one out for a 6TB sata III drive for Christmas. I'm hoping
since the mobo hasn't had any problems with the 3 drives, I won't hit
the driver bug you did. If it's the same chipset, maybe the bug is
limited to SSDs?
