It is true that on say, the P8P67, which has 4x6.0gps ports (2 marvell and 2 intel), it is 100% safe to plug drives into those 4 6.0 ports as the degrading problem is only located on the 3.0 ports right? That includes both the Marvell controller and the Intel controller?
I just want to make sure that it will be fine to run my PC like this until the recalls start.
Of the two Marvel 6 GB SATA ports available on the chipset, only one is available for a boot device. A third party SATA controller would solve any problem with number of usable problem free SATA connectors until a replacement can be had.
