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! m 0 l smorizio a c 462 V Motherboard a b å Intel June 9, 2013 11:15:22 PM 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. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
