    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:
    IntelŽ Z87 chipset :
    6 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), yellow
    Support Raid 0, 1, 5, 10
    Supports IntelŽ Dynamic Storage Accelerator, IntelŽ Smart Response Technology, IntelŽ Rapid Start Technology, IntelŽ Smart Connect Technology*3
    
    ASMediaŽ ASM1061 controller : *4
    4 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), dark brown

    #3 - Please use the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be your PSU at issue.
