Asus P9X79 Deluxe SSD Caching SATA Ports Tags: Motherboards Asus SATA Cache SSD Last response: August 20, 2012 7:59 PM in Motherboards Share RugaCH August 20, 2012 6:44:10 AM Hello, I recently aquired an Asus P9X79 Deluxe Motherboard and am happy with it. I currently use 6 of the 8 available SATA Connectors on the Motherboard. The two unused ones are the gray colored ones with the SSD Caching Sticker on top. I was wondering - can I just hook up two regular SATA devices to those two ports? I have no intention to use the SSD Caching feature and would just like to add 2 more devices.

Be sure they are enabled in the bios, and any driver needed for them is loaded in windows. RugaCH August 20, 2012 7:59:03 PM Cheers for the answer!
