Your model KV8-MX motherboard does not have a SATA controller.
To install a 1Tb SATA hard drive you need to install a PCI SATA controller and then connect the SATA hard drive to this controller board.

I just want to know whether SATA 1TB hdd support Asus K8V SE Deluxe Motherboard or not? and also i want to use 512 MB grafix card. can both things support to this motherboard?


Yes as long as there are SATA ports on the motherboard it will work fine.
You will need to find out if your graphics card is pci-e or agp and make sure it matches the motherboard.

Hi, I'm having K8V-MX Asus mother board with AMD 3000+ processor wih 1GB DDR ram, with 80 GB PATA Segate HDD connected. After adding 500GB SATA HDD to this mother board, my system performance is very low....


Hi,
Thanks for the details. I have used K8V-MX Asus motherboard and found it very reliable with quite reasonable performance. It definately supports 500 GB Sata drive and there must not be any issues after increasing just the storage. However, Operating System upgrade may result in sluggish performance. Drivers dont seem to be an issue to me either.
I suggest to review a few points detailed as under: -
- K8V-MX Asus Supports RAID, so, check for any RAID Drivers/ settings. (You dont have to use RAID for two Hard Drives of different make, capacity and speed). Try using one disk at a time having same Operating System (e.g. Windows XP) and compare the performance.
- Infact SATA Drives have better data transfer rate than IDE, which results in enhanced performance.
- Some Programs (that you may not be using with 80GB drive) Like antivirus may result in decreased performance.
- Please Review you Operating System environment and software installed. Make sure that the new drive & Operating System are free of any virus, which results in CPU Utilization upto 100%.
- Also, motherboard supports Max 2GB RAM, so you may consider adding more RAM.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Hope it helps! Good Luck!

SATA HDD is not detceted properly


As far as I can remember, the VIA VT8237R southbridge used on this board has a bug, causing it not to recognize SATA II drives.
You may be able to configure your hard drive to use the slower SATA 150 mode (1.5 GBit/s or 150MB/s) by setting a jumper on the drive. Unfortunately, this is not supported by all models - check the jumper description on the drive.

If the drive doesn't offer this feature, you might consider adding a SATA controller like this one (you may be able to find better and cheaper controller cards at your local computer store).

K8V-MX motherboard+HDD size limit


yes the mother board supports SATA However if you connect large Disks to the SATA connectors they are recognized correctly with full size. So leave your 500g and less HDs on the IDE and the big ones on the SATA. you can check this link for the manual for more information ftp://ftp.chiligreen.com/Desktop/Manuals/manual_a_k8v-mx.pdf hope this helps .thanks and Godbless pls appreciate by rating as fixyaa

HDD Connection


Hi, you'll need one of these: http://www.csncables.com/Cables-to-Go-1018X-GY1352.html (Data cable).
& one of these:
http://www.mwave.com/mwave/Skusearch_v2.asp?scriteria=BA00307 (Power cable IDE 4-pin to SATA drive). Unless your current power supply has a SATA power connector.
Open your manual to the top of page 1-24. SATA data cables connect one way only. It does not take much to break the ( L ) shape end of either the data cable or the SATA power cable.
(All SATA drives are seen a master drives). When in your bios choose the correct drive under Boot > Boot order.
Need more info, just ask.

Good luck!
