Hey all, does the Z68x (more specifically -UD4 and related) motherboard support hard drives larger than 4TB+ via SATA?

This is an old mobo, circa 2011? and on it's official manual, it says it supports 3TB+ HDD. But back then, there were no 4TB, 6TB drives. So the manual doesn't specifically say 4TB+ is supported.

I was wondering if anyone here have a Z68x mobo and using a 4TB drive with their setup.

FWIW, I do have an external 5TB USB drive connected to this machine, but not sure if a same size hard drive will work connected directly via SATA.

Thanks!

Ok, I noticed it says 3TB+ (didn't notice the + sign). So 4TB will work on this old mobo? It's got the UEFI hybrid bios, whatever that means.
