Find your motherboard manual; it is a must to have.
I do agree with kbrady1979, stick with the Intel SATA ports.

Your could check the Asus motherboard forum and see if their is a way to use all 4 sataIII ports at the same time.

I called Asus again, and spoke to a rep that previously helped me.

There are 4 6gb ports, but the other 2 are external, which I am using for my external hdds.

Thanks again for all the good advice from all who replied.:)

Or storage and optical drives where speed isn't as important.

You could do that, IF you have hard drives using up the Intel ports. I would keep everything off the 3rd party chipset ports and disable them to be honest. I've got mine disabled currently. I would rather get a RAID card for more SATA ports than use the ones on boards today lol.

Gotcha. Honestly, I wish I hadn't put an optical drive in this rig. I think I've used mine once since I built this rig, which was over a year ago.
