    Default Looking for recommendation on storage config using SSD and RAID 1 on Z68 Exteme4

    I'm new to the world of SSDs, but am about to start a build on a machine I plan to hang onto for at least 5 years and wanted to take advantage of some of their benefits. I have a Crucial M4 128 GB SSD and 2 WD Black SATA3 1 TB drives. I'd like to use the SSD as a boot/system disk and the WDs for data. I was intending to hook these up as follows since the Marvell controller does not support RAID:
    Connect the SSD to the Marvell controller SATA3 and use the Intel SATA3 ports for the WD drives in RAID 1
    I'm wondering about the performance of this setup though. Another option is:
    Connect the SSD to a Intel SATA3 port, and connect the 2 WDs to the Intel SATA2 ports using Intel Rapid Storage

    Anyone have experience running a SATA3 SSD boot disk off the Marvell? Any recommendations on which option would provide better performance? Any other configuration recommendations? Thanks for your help.
