Asus Maximus Formula II mobo- what SATA port to install Vertex2 SSD ? Tags: Motherboards SATA Chip Last response: December 30, 2010 12:20 PM in Motherboards Share Mfusick December 27, 2010 12:43:30 PM Does it matter what chip or Sata port I hook my new OCZ vertex2 120gig up ?? I plan to clean install windows 7 64bit onto this as OS drive... Is one chip better or faster than the other? I plan to do a Raid Array of cheaper 7200rpm drive for storage at least 2X500gig or larger... and I have a 300 gig Velociraptor I plan to use in combo with SSD for downloads/mydocuments/Mymusic folders...
