    Default sata connections

    I am buying the extreme 11 and just wondering which ports should be used for my 2 ssd's and my 2 optical drives to gain the most benefit.

    Is that the X79 or Z77 Extreme 11 board?

    Really doesn't matter, they both have the similar SATA and SAS chipsets.

    Your SSDs should be used with either the Intel SATA III ports, or the LSI SATA III ports. You'll need to test the SSDs on both interfaces to find which one has the best performance.

    Optical drives operate at SATA I speeds, regardless of the type (BD, DVD) and can be connected to the Intel SATA II ports.
