Im using maximus hero vi and currently I'll only use 1 SSD for the whole system. Im trying to connect things together and I wonder if it does matter in which port of the mobo I'll plug the cable from the SSD. ( I got 8 choices )

On that particular board theyre all sata III connectors so as far as speed goes it wont really matter. i would plug it in to sata 1 or 2 (its actually labeled on the board itself if you look closely, but thats just me.
Connect your drive to one of the Intel 6Gb/s ports. The ASMedia 6Gb/s ports perform slightly slower. Make sure that the port is set to AHCI mode in your motherboard's BIOS.
