MB: Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R - Bios ver FH
CPU: Intel 960

POST detected (IDE Channel 7 Master) my OCZ Vertex 4 SSD fine; Windows loads perfectly OK; BIOS Boot priority detects the SSD OK;

But, nowhere I can find my Vertex4 SSD in the 'Standard CMOS Features'; my other (Seagate 1TB) HDD shows OK.

Also, my CPU fan seems to be spinning fast at ~1374 rpm when idle, idle temp: 37 C; CPU Smart fan control is set to 'Auto'. Looks like it is not working correctly as it should be.

Any suggestions?

Are you running it on a SATA controller that is in RAID or AHCI mode? If so, drives on those controllers usually only show up on the controller's own BIOS extension popup during POST, not in standard BIOS setup.

1374 rpm is pretty slow for a CPU fan, that sounds pretty normal if you have auto fan control turned on to me. I have mine off for maximum cooling and the fan full speed is 3300 rpm
