    Default GA-P67A-UD 7 Hard Drive setup Questions

    I have this mobo and am waiting for more parts to arrive to start the build. I am trying to figure out how to setup my existing hard drives. Realizing the SATA ports are bad and the board will eventually be replaced I am trying to figure out if I can set this all up. I have an SSD that will plug into SATA 0 and be Drive C for the OS. After that, I have a SATA DVD/CD and 4 Internal SATA 3 hard drives to plug in. I will NOT be using raid on these. I simply want them all as stand alone drives. I know the board has 8 Internal SATA ports but I don't completely understand the SATA / GSATA thing. Can I realize that SATA 0 and 1 are SATA 6, hence the SSD which is SATA 6 on SATA 0 port. Can I simply put the DVD/CD on SATA 1 and then the four HD's, which are SATA 3.0 devices, on SATA 2 thru 5? Also, I am thinking by the mobo manual schematic that SATA ports 6 and 7 are on the Marvel controller? Can someone explain to me the whole Chipset vs Marvel controller SATA / GSATA thing once and for all.

    Put any OS hdd/ssd on port 0,or first sata3 port,don't use the supplied drivers for sata3 though,just let Windows find and install its own,you will have better results/reliability,

    As for SATA dvd drives plug them in ports 4/5,any storage drives plug them in the ports that's left,remember to enable ahci in the bios for your ssd,before you install the os
