I have a Rampage iii extreme that I bought a while back but didn't use much. Recently, I tried to rebuild my system and noticed that 3 SATA ports are malfunctioning already. What happened today, however, is why I'm posting this. I was using my PC today, which I've been using for hours daily for the past two weeks, and suddenly I couldn't access some folders in a storage drive, then I couldn't access the drive, then I could access the drive but none of the folders... it kept happening randomly until I changed the SATA port. It seems to be working now, but it also seems that I'm losing ports. Can anyone help?
