    you have the older marvell controllers on that mb,the newer ones are as good as newer intel sata 3,but those are poor,you might see better figures than on sata2 but idk how reliable they are,unless you tested them,in raid0 they would probably crash or error but for a single drive you might be ok

    running on intel sata2 ports will be fine though you would get max sata2 speeds on those without issue

    For a ssd boot drive you would see better performance on the intel sata2 ports then you would on the older marvel ports. If this was going to be a storage drive then the marvel ports would be better.

    If I was you I would get a sata3 drive so if you decide to upgrade your motherboard at a later time you would already have a sata3 drive to use.

    X58A-UD3R Rev. 2.0 Bios FH MOD Complete
    Updat with...
    IRST 11.1.0.1413
    Realteck 2.46
    Jmicron 1.07.28
    Marvell Bios Version 1.0.0.1033 / Firmware 2.2.0.1125
    After flash is complete, shut down fully and switch off PSU, wait one minute and clear CMOS. Then turn on, boot to BIOS and load optimized and save/apply/reboot back to the BIOS. Once in the BIOS again set AHCI settings and Marvell Firmware mode to "Force", then save/apply/reboot and let it load through to windows, before that happens Marvell Firmware will update and board will reboot.*

    I would probably use the marvell ports, you would see overall better speeds on them but you would see better 4k speeds on the intel sata2 ports. OS start up would be a little faster on the sata2 ports but by how much maybe a 1sec or 2.
