I am planing on connecting the following drives into my P8Z77-V PRO/THUNDERBOLT
2 WD Red 1 TB NAS Hard Drive: 3.5 Inch, SATA III, 64 MB Cache - WD10EFRX in a raid 0 config
2 Western Digital Caviar Blue 500 GB SATA III 7200 RPM 16 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Desktop Hard Drive - WD5000AAKX
1 Samsung Electronics 840 Pro Series 2.5-Inch 128 SATA_6_0_gb Solid State Drive MZ-7PD128BW
but the mother board says
Intel® Z77 chipset : *5
2 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), gray
4 x SATA 3Gb/s port(s), blue
Support Raid 0, 1, 5, 10
Supports Intel® Smart Response Technology, Intel® Rapid Start Technology, Intel® Smart Connect Technology *5
ASMedia® PCIe SATA controller : *6
2 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), navy blue
would be great if someone can help me figure out how to connect these drives.
thank you so much. I have also decided to use only 1 blue drive to save a little money and I think its safer to have a remote back up via usb that I only connect when I need to back up something. and also becase my understanding is that a virus or something can wipe out everything on all the connected drives.
it looks like I will finally make the order today. I think I might ad a fan to the i7-3770k and maybe one to my cooler master storm trooper.
