Keep in mind though the Marvell controller does not support trim. Something to keep in mind.

I've heard about the TRIM thing but I honestly don't know what that is, so I'd like to avoid using it if possible..

Just to make it clear, I should observe no difference between these two configurations right?

1.
HDD->intel chipset 6gb/s 90degree cable
SSD->intel chipset 6gb/s straight cable

2.
HDD->intel chipset 3gb/s 90degree cable
SSD->intel chipset 6gb/s 90degree cable

Trim is basically how the drive handles garbage collection with deleted files. Every ssd still has on board garbage collection that does the same thing but slower.

I have had my crucial ssd on the marvell controller for months and have noticed no degradation benchmarks are still the same. Having extra space helps though. The nature of trim on the Marvell controller is still hazy.

If you put a sata 6 drive on the intel it will work but be capped at sata 3gb/s speeds. If you go this route you could save money and get a normal 3gbs drive which will still be faster then a hdd.

Ok, but I plan on using my regular HDD for data storage and games. You mentioned I won't see a speed increase with using 6gb/s, but my HDD is SATA 6. It is still optimal for me to use the 6gb/s slot on the intel, correct?

Sorry, I'm kind of confused. So even if I put the SATA 6 into the 6gb/s slot for regular HDD it will still cap at 3gb?

Yeah the hdd will never reach speeds to take advantage of the 6gbs or even the maxspeed of the 3gbs port. It's just marketing. It will work in both but given the larger number and better support just use the intel ports.

The 6gbs ports are only useful for ssds
