    im no expert on ssd's but from what ive read unless your running sata3 ssd's then the intel ports will be fine and may have better reliability/performance than the onboard sata3,but your mb doesnt have those correct? if so try with the sata3 pci-e card,i dont know how it will perform you should run some ssd benchmarks and see

    I have not seen anything about the card you mention, so not sure if it will be better than the Intel controller or not?

    I assume not though, because all the current 6Gb/s solutions are the same Marvell 9128 controller, so if it's that then it will only be faster at Sequential read speeds nothing else that matters such as 4K/4K threaded operations.

    You do not want to use the onboard Gigabyte/J.Micron ports for any RAID unless it's data backup that you don't care about speeds.

    You also do not want to use the onboard Marvell 6Gb/s controller for RAID either, it will drop drives on you and Gigabyte has noted in the board specs that 9128 can't handle SSD in RAID.

    Check out my review here for more controller comparisons and thoughts about the various controllers.
