Because I want to connect a external SATA USB 3.0 Goflex HDD via the USB 3.0 port on the mobos back panel and USB 3.0 Pen drive.

Don't want z68 mobo cuz like I said I'm looking for cheapest mobo.

Hi,

I want to go in for a mobo with SATA 3.0 AND USB 3.0 for performance. It seems ASROCK H61M/U3S3 uses ASMedia ASM1061 for SATA 3.0 AND ASMedia ASM1042 for USB 3.0.

A. Which will be faster a mobo with H67 that got native USB 3.0 AND SATA 3.0 OR the above model?

B. Will use of these chips result in the above mobo result in a performance almost equivalent to that of

i. H61 with USB 2.0, SATA 2.0 or
ii. H67 with USB 2.0, SATA 2.0

Which do you think will give a noticeable performance improvement.... ASRock H61M/U3S3 , B (i) or B (ii) above.

SATA 6Gb/s is backwards compatible and it gives you some future proofing with that board.
