  1. Now that helium hard drives have been on the market for a couple of years, would you consider them to be as reliable as existing "conventional" hard drives, more reliable, or less reliable? Will the helium inside eventually leak out?
  2. My motherboard recently died and I just got a temporary replacement while I RMA my motherboard. Anyways, I have 1 SSD and 4 Western Digital Black hard drives, along with a Blu-Ray burner. My new temporary motherboard (an Asrock Z97 Anniversary) is not seeing my 4 Western Digital Black hard drives at all in the UEFI BIOS. The drives do not show up at all. I've tried swapping the SATA cables, swapping power supplies, swapping power cables, and tried mixing up the connectors. There are 6 SATA 3 headers on the board. Apparently the board is known to prioritize SATA headers 0 and 1, but when I swap them around, the hard drives still are not recognized. Resetting the CMOS with the jumper did not do anything either. A dying motherboard could not kill 4 hard drives could it? I think it has to do with the motherboard itself? Is this a BIOS issue? OR something else? I don't have a spare system on hand to test the hard drives, which complicates things somewhat. This guy here had a very similar issue: Did I get a bad motherboard?
