I have a new i7 mobo.
Problem: after putting in this new mobo, cpu and ram in my box, once I hit the power button the PS/system starts then restarts 3 times before really starting. I was told this is an issue with fast ddr3 and x58 chipset. My primary hard disk is a SSD which does not like the power cycling thing and does not show up in bios most of the time.
I think my solution will be to get and externally powered esata HD enclosure so the drive does not see the power go up and down.
Question is: If bios suppports booting from external esata will it be much slower than plugging it directly to an internal sata port?
