Hi everyone, I just got my P8Z77-V Deluxe board and Ive just about finished putting the whole thing together so I would like some advice on to which SATA port should I hook up my various drives to since Ive read various opinions to use the Intel SATA 3 port for the SSD and the Marvel for SATA 2 and on other the whole way around. Here is what I have:
I have a brand spanking new Crucial M4 64 Gb SATA 3 that I intend to use as a system drive for its fast boot speeds and what not, maybe Ill install Office.
3 WD Caviar 500 GB SATA 2 that are my data disk
1 NEC IDE DVD/RW with a IDE-SATA adapter (these converters rarely work like they are supposed to, but will disconnect and remove if proving to be too much of a nuisance)
Where should I connect each of the devices taking into account that this is mostly a gaming rig?
