Hi [MENTION=80840]trs2099[/MENTION] ,

I agree with [MENTION=15026]topgear[/MENTION] . If you are planning for high storage like up to 3TB, you have to set the BIOS to UEFI and the drive in GPT format. Normally, the MBR format supports up to 2.2 TB so your MOBO is fine for that. If you need a 3TB, so I advise to update the BIOS.

For more information regarding the file systems, Please refer the link below:

Good luck
