From the following SATA ports on an Asus P6T Deluxe V2, which one is SATA port 0, 1, 2 and 3? Where does SATA port 0 start? This picture shows a V1 of the Asus P6T Deluxe, but I assume the port numbering will be the same.

bjorn3d.com doesn't allow direct links to images -- your link just produces an error message.

The preview of my post worked fine, I saw no reason to believe the final post wouldn't. Either way, >> here is << the link to the page with the SATA ports picture.

Thanks for the photo link. Going by the numbering that I can see on the PC board, the orange connectors are the 2 SAS connectors, and the red connectors are the SATA ports. The photo of the SAS/SATA connector area shows that the 2 SATA ports next to the SAS1 and SAS2 ports are SATA3 and SATA4. From an earlier photo, it looks like the other two 90-degree SATA ports are SATA1 and SATA2, and the two "normal" SATA connectors are SATA5 and SATA6. Double-check the labeling on your board.

So focusing on the four red ports next to the orange ports - the left two are SATA 3 and 4, and the right two (next to the IDE connector) are SATA 1 and 2? In the case of SATA 1 and 2 (next to the IDE connector), is SATA 1 the port on top or the port right next to the board?

Thanks.

Based on the SAS1 and 2, I would think the top is SATA1 and the bottom SATA2, but it might be the other way around.

i have the p6t deluxe v2 board. only difference is no SAS. So, starting from the SAS ports: the two red sata are sata3(top) 4 (bottom), then sata1(top) 2 (bottom). the two next to the southbridge heatsink is sata 5(top) and 6.
To answer aln688 question, SATA1 starts on the IDE connector side.

Easy way to do this. Print out a graphic of your MB. Plug a single SATA drive into any port, fire it up. Go into BIOS and see what drive/port it shows. Write it on printout.

Repeat...
