Windows 7 Professional 64 bit ASUS P8Z77-V Premium motherboard
The ASUS motherboard has 4 Marvell 9230 SATA ports which seem to be causing BSODs. When downloading large files (defined roughly as 10-40 GB in size) to the drives connected to the Marvell ports my computer will often BSOD. The drives connected to the Intel SATA ports operate without causing crashes which is what makes me suspicious of the Marvell SATA ports.
The Marvell SATA controller apparently has its own BIOS (current version 22.214.171.1241). The current firmware version is 126.96.36.1997. Marvell's website does not appear to have recent versions of either the BIOS or the firmware. Also, it is unclear whether or not the Marvell BIOS screen is in fact a BIOS at all. I have downloaded the latest files from ASUS's website, but this does not appear to update the BIOS or firmware... at least not according to the information obtained from the Marvell BIOS screen.
I am trying to avoid purchasing a new motherboard. Any suggestions or thoughts on how to bring the firmware and BIOS to current versions would be greatly appreciated. I would be happy to provide any additional information if necessary.
