  1. Jmicron is your onboard RAID Controller. You don't need to hook anything up to those slots, if not doing a RAID. Hook up your boot drive to the first SATA slot, than your other hdd's, followed by DVD drives and eSATA connections on SATA_1 through SATA_???.
  2. Please don't triple post.

    To answer - I would use the Intel SATA slots first. I would use the jmicron as secondary (DVD drive, etc).

    Jmicron manufactures chips to be used for additional devices - eSATA, IDE, etc. Usually the intel slots perform better, though I've had no problems with the jmicron chips on my boards.
