P8Z77-V Sata ports

Hello, on my motherboard P8Z77-V I have 2 different kinds of SATA 6gb ports, there are 2 Intel ones and then there are 2 Asmedia ones.

I'm just wondering which ones are the faster ones.

I appreciate any input on this!

  1. On Asus mb the asmedia ports made for data drives only.

    Does this mean I should use the Intel (white) for my SSD (with OS), and then the Asmedia (dark blue) for my Data Drive? (with all my games, music and programs)?

    I'm very much a noob at this stuff, so if you know why this is this way, I'd like to know, so I learn some stuff!
  3. Want use all the intel ports first. A Sata hard drive can't max out the slower intel blue ports. On my sabertooth I have my cd roms on the blue intel ports and Ssd and hard drive on intel 6g port.
