Installing HD, Sata can't reach Sata port 1, does it matter which order?

I have ports from 0 to 5, they are all the same color and are in different locations. My wire can't reach port 1 for my new HD, can I just use port 5? Its the closest

Oh yeah, I already have a HD in port 0. Who needs a cd player anymore!

It should be fine.

The one time it matters is if the motherboard has a mix of SATA II and SATA III and if your peripheral supports SATA III - you don't want it running slower.
