Or do i hook up boot hdd to sata 1, backup hdd to sata 2, and dvd to sata 3? please help in middle of build.
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_???.
