Force 3 reboot loop on Marvell 91xx SATA 6G Controller

Recommended Posts

I have an 1124... Force 3 F120 and if i connect it to the Marvell 91xx SATA 6G Controller on my Asus P7P55D-E Board it rapidly reboots after initialasing the Controller. (Force 3 is shown by the Controller)

If I connect my Seagate 3TB drive it works with same cable on same Port.

On Intel Onboard 3GB/s Sata Port the Force is working fine but not with full speed. (Only 280 MB/s max)

Is there any firmware update or trick to make it working on the marvel Controller ?

BIOS is 1504 (latest ASUS BIOS for this Board)

I tried now with shorter cable and the reboot loop is gone, but now it shows "Disk read Error"

If i connect and boot from 3GB/s Intel SATA it works well but not at full speed...

The truth is that the Marvell controller sucks it's a proven fact. It even says 91xx on its bios screen lol... Come on Marvell, you don't know whether it is 9123 or 9128?


I would try using the Intel sata 2 controller instead, to see if it still gives an error.


The Intel might be a bit slower on sequential reads/writes. But from what I have read, 4K operations are what matters in daily use. And the Marvel 912x doesn't pass trim commands with any driver - the intel does.
