Quick question guys, I got everything in today apart from the memory (had to be shipped from Cali
). I was flipping through the mobo manual and saw the diagram of how everything is connected/what talks to what (can't remember what it was called) and I noticed that 2 of the 8 SATA ports go through the northbridge, while the other 6 go through the southbridge first. Is there a reason for this (i.e. the 2 are faster so should be used for boot drives)?
Thanks! Can't wait to get the memory in and get it running tomorrow. It looks like the box was abused a little bit, fingers crossed it will POST on the first try!
