    Default GA-MA790FX-DS5 sata config

    I have a GA-MA790FX-DS5 i am going to use for crossfire. I am thinking of using OCZ vertex plus 60gb SDD for OS only and HDD for the rest. I'm wondering if it makes any difference which sata ports i use. For instance, would it be better to run the OS in gsata and the rest in esata?

    You want to use the first AMD SATA port (SATAII_0) for the OS drive, any additional storage drives after that, and put CD/DVD on the last AMD SATA port.

    Don't use the GSATA ones until last, as in all other SATA ports are used up.
