Which SATA on Mobo GA-x58-ud3r? Tags: Motherboards SATA Gigabyte Last response: March 21, 2010 2:46 AM in Motherboards Share jetpack March 20, 2010 7:59:01 PM Hi, My Gigabyte GA-X58-UD3R has both an ICH10R and a "Gigabyte Sata2" controller. I'm not sure which to use to connect my primary boot drive (an SSD) and my primary data drive (HDD). I'm not doing any RAID and these drives only work with SATA 3Gb I believe (the board has DATA 6Gb connectors as well). Thanks all!
