1. If I plug it into the grey ports, should I still be using the white 6GB/s SATA III cable? Or does it not matter?
2. I believe the "WD Raid0 is on the grey connectors" is set to RAID and not AHCI, should this be an issue if I do decide to put the SSD on the intel controllers and if so I'm not sure I can change it without getting an error on the WD drives.
1- It should not matter, but to be on the safe side use the cable for the Sata II ports.

2- RAID is a form of AHCI or AHCI is a form of RAID, either way you would not have to change it.

Thread Starter 
I was getting around 300-370mb/s for sequential read in SATA III and now im getting about ~270-300mb/s in the SATA II intel grey connectors with the SATA II connector wire.

That is interesting, everything that I have read says that specification wise there is no difference in the two cables only that the SATA III cable maybe a better quality, but there should be not difference in performance if on a SATA II port.

Maybe I will swap my SSD SATA II cable to a SATA III cable and see what happens.
