    Place you system HDD's/SSD's you want speed from on the Z87's native yellow ports.

    The ASMedia controllers ports are notorious for being slower. CD/DVD/BD and other slower interface devices I'd place here on the brown ports.

    From the Specs page of your MB, found HERE:
    Code:
    Intel® Z87 chipset :
    6 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), yellow
    Support Raid 0, 1, 5, 10
    Supports Intel® Dynamic Storage Accelerator, Intel® Smart Response Technology, Intel® Rapid Start Technology, Intel® Smart Connect Technology*3
    
    ASMedia® ASM1061 controller : *4
    4 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), dark brown

    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.

    #3 - Please use the PSU Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be the PSU causing issues. I do(Lifetime PRO ver.) and will mention so if it is marginal for your build.
    ____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.
