    Those are same ones as on Gigabytes site, i have them installed from Gigabyte site, goes in before operating system on thumb drive during custom install. IRST second one on list in picture is just the software, first is the drivers for controller. Same page not shown Chipset drivers are there too. Look under Windows 8.1 64bit you will see all, also have F6 BIOS GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 2011-3 - GA-X99-UD3 (rev. 1.0)

    I don't know if you looked at Intel IRST drivers: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/dow...ST-RAID-Driver

    Look at post # 31 again for controllers.

    Did you check performance of SSDs ? A lot can be gleaned about their and drivers work from that.

    This part ?

    to gather or collect (something) in a gradual way: to search (something) carefully
    : to gather grain or other material that is left after the main crop has been gathered

    Asking right person on that, buddy, gathered and searched enough info on this issue. Second time talking to Gigabyte support picking there brains. To them or me does not seem like a driver issue as even BIOS does not recognize it when it goes, does not need a driver for BIOS to see it. Plus other same model SSD works fine.

    Asking right person on that, buddy, gathered and searched enough info on this issue, post #45 already. Second time talking to Gigabyte support picking there brains. To them or me not a driver issue, as even the BIOS does not recognize it when it goes, does not need a driver for BIOS to recognize it. Plus the other same model SSD (OS) is working fine. Looked back and read all my posts in this thread, see all i have tried or looked into. Even the Crucial article is showing some......... Glean !

    So odds of one SATA port going bad is rare, usually all, the controller on Motherboard. Why with HDD on same port is not disappearing, sometimes it did take up to two weeks for issue to occur again. My thoughts were HDD might not be as sensitive to an issue as SSD was on same port, this saying the port is bad.

    Gigabyte asked if i had another SSD to try on the suspected port, i do, but what will this prove if HDD on same port is fine so far. Something i said before about difference in the sensitivity of a connection problem between a SSD and a HDD.

    You may be right about HDD in same place, they are much slower so short misfire in communication with it may not affect it same way. It's really frustrating to troubleshoot intermittent problems specially when not occurring regularly. MFG's support is of no real help, they tend to talk down at you and most used advice is to reboot computer. I gave up on them long time ago.

    Yes, this was my diagnosis about HDD compared to SSD, you may have mentioned something about sensitivity compared with SSD when i changed the cable then. Gigabyte support then thought the same idea about that. Talking to support over the years i notice, because i have learned more over time too, i feel like i may know almost as much as them. Plus i needed some extra thoughts on this issue and googling this drives you mad after awhile, so many slightly different scenarios and forum opinions and never the exact same issue as yours. Sure people searching this similar issue come to this thread too.

    I may either wait a bit longer see if something happens or try another SSD on that suspected port. Been over a week since the swap, hey, took two weeks after the cable change.

    Other SSD i have is 250GB, these on the system now are (2) 512GB. One 512GB with issue was used for games, so hate use 250GB for that as will consume most of the drive. Unless i put OS on 250GB move 512GB the original OS drive on suspected bad Port. Again this means another clean install or use Macrium reflect. Unless i just pop the 250GB SSD on blank wait till christmas for it to fail

    Sorry, i sounded abrupt as i am bit frustrated being an intermittent issue and hard to solve. Appreciate any advice.
