Question GIGABYTE AORUS GA-AX370-Gaming 5 maxing out HDD 100%

Jun 21, 2020
so ive bought 4-5 of these motherboards and all of them seem to have a problem with HDD's has anyone else had this issue? if so how were you able to resolve the issue.

each one keeps maxing out the hard drive at 100% rendering them almost useless until i reboot and even then it doesnt always fix it. am i doing something wrong with these boards or should i just switch all of them to SSD

(I have also flopped which sata plug they are plugged into as well. with no such luck of fixing them. as well as trying to change the plug order from big to little or little to big)

also each HDD says they are at 100% health with HDD sentinel
