I installed Windows 10 on my PC yesterday and ever since I've noticed a clicking coming from my two Samsung SpinPont 1TB drives that I have running in a RAID0 array.  I've tried installing the most recent chipset drivers, as well as all the other possible drivers from my MB's website(ASRock Extreme4 z77).  I also disable the power saving option where the drives would be shutoff after 20 minutes.


If i boot off of my old SSD's where windows 7 is installed, I don't run into this issue so it defintely seems like a driver issue to me... but I can't seem to find the right one?  From my understanding the Sata controller should install with the INF package, which I downloaded directly from INTEL.  I considered using the version from ASRock, but it prompts be it's an older version when I try to install, so I'd rather not go backwards.  I even tried the ASMedia Sata 3 driver from ASRock in hopes for a fix but no such luck...


Can someone point me in the right direction?


Current Setup:

i5 IvyBridge

ASRock Extreme4 z77

2x 1TB drives running in RAID0

1x 240GB SSD OCZ

2x 60GB SSD Crucial(windows 7 install)

1x 1TB Green WDC - Disconnected in hopes this was where the clicking was coming from


Thank you!
