Installing Optical Drive

Hey guys,

So my parts are arriving soon, but I'm
Not exactly sure where I should connect my BD-ROM/ DVD REWRITER (optical drive) to?
I've got the Asus Sabertooth Z77 and it has the following connections:

Intel Z77 Express Chipset
2 x SATA 6Gb/s ports (Gray)
4 x SATA 3Gb/s ports (black)

2 x ASmedia 1061 SATA Controllers
2 x SATA 6Gb/s ports (Gray)
2 x eSATA 6Gb/s ports (red)

I planned on connecting the SSD and HDD to Intels Sata 6Gb/s, but then I realised I wanted maximum read times from my optical drive? So what should I connect my optical drive to? I was going to connect it to the ASmedia, but the manual on my mobo states those ports are strictly for data hard drivers only?
Some help would be great guys!
