Asus P9X79 Deluxe SSD Caching SATA Ports

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.

Yes, you can use them as regular ports. Be sure they are enabled in the bios, and any driver needed for them is loaded in windows.

Cheers for the answer!

Just wanted to be sure before I do something stupid!
