I have the rampage IV extreme. I got a sata II 120 Gb ssd and a sata III barracuda. I'm under the impression that the HDD will not max out sata II speeds let alone sata III. What I've done is set the sata II ssd to the intel sata III port I, and I set the HDD to the other Sata III drive that is for data only (e1). I then set my blue ray drive to sata II. Additionally I used all sata 6 Gb/s cables. Should I set my system up differently? I'm still waiting on the ram but I have every other component installed.
Thank you for the response. I was going to use the hard drive as data and the SSD as my main board but I think I'm going to boot OS from the hard drive and use SSD as my drive for gaming. I can just get an external usb 3.0 drive for my music storage.
Lol well stated. I did end up putting my ssd in windows sata III slot 1 at 6gb/s and then putting my hdd in slot 2 and then switched it to slot 4 (which is sata II/3gb/s). The system is recognizing the hdd but not when I go under computer. I can only see it in some bios spots and under device manager.
