This is the boards storage configuration:
Intel® P67 Express Chipset
2 xSATA 6.0 Gb/s ports (gray)
4 xSATA 3.0 Gb/s ports (blue)
Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Support RAID 0,1,5,10
Marvell® 9120 controller
2 xSATA 6.0 Gb/s ports (navy blue))*
JMicron® JMB362 SATA controller
2 xExternal SATA 3.0 Gb/s ports*
* These SATA ports are for data hard drives only. ATAPI devices are not supported.
I will be using a SATA III Crucial RealSSD CS300 64Gb drive as the OS drive.
I have 2 x SATA II Samsung Spinpoint F3 1Gb drives that will be in Raid 1.
I also have a SATA II DVD Burner
So here is the question... If I put the SSD on the Marvell 9120 6.0 Gb/s controller and the HDD's on the P67 SATA 6.0Gb/s in RAID 1 am I going to have potential trouble by putting the DVD on the 3.0 Gb/s? I only plan on using the DVD burner to install the OS and maybe MS office, then it will just sit there looking pretty until the new p67 reloaded boards come out and I RMA this turd.
This is a nightmare because all the parts have been shipped from different vendors and are coming from all over the USA this week... My wife is already pissed I spent $1600 on my new toy and I can't imagine what she is going to say when I tell her that the toy is broken even before it gets here... Somebody shoot me!
Anandtech's advice is to stick everything on the 6g/s controller for now. All of the descriptions on the bug I've read is that its a wear/use over time issue where if you have heavy traffic over the controller degradation may start to appear. I think, if you hook everything you can that's important to the 6 Gb/s controller and put the DVD drive(used only for installs) on the Gb/s controller I don't see why it would have a problem until you RMA it to the vendor.
