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 :
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 :
2 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), red JMicron® JMB362 controller :
2 x eSATA 3Gb/s port(s), red
I have Kingston HyperX SSD 120GB, SATA-3
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.
