Windows 7: Intel or Marvell SATA3 Port?

Intel or Marvell SATA3 Port?

Hello everybody,

This is my first post here and im glad to be here .

Im building a new system and i have this Asus Maximus Extreme Z motherboard.On the board i have these ports :

Intel® Z68 chipset : *1
2 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), red
4 x SATA 3Gb/s port(s), gray
Support Raid 0, 1, 5, 10
Support Intel® Smart Response Technology on 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor family
Marvell® PCIe 9182 controller : *1
2 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), red
JMicron® JMB362 controller : *1
2 x eSATA 3Gb/s port(s), red

I have Kingston HyperX SSD 120GB, SATA-3 with TRIM feature.

I am being for hours on Asus Republic of Gamers forums and it seems that nobody doesnt know which port is better and more stable for usage.

I still dont know on which SATA 6Gb/s port to connect this SSD?

The intel connectors are set to AHCI by default.

Do i need to configure RAID's to be able to boot from CD?

Should the windows recognize the SSD when i boot from CD ?

I would really appreciate your answers and support on this one.

Thank you
