Sabertooth X79 - USB ports and HDD/DVD connections

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello!

I7-3930
PNY GTX295
Sabertooth X79
Windows 7-32 bit (later will be 64-bit)

Help me, please, to connect my HDD and DVD drives to Sabertooth X79.
I have four internal WD Black, a couple years old HDD's (one of them is system drive) - no RAID and two internal DVD drives: DVD read (going to replace wth BD+RW later) and DVD+RW. Also thinking about adding SSD drive next year.

There are 2 brown, 4 black and 2 grey USB connectors. Which way is more efficient to connect all this staff?

P.S. And also any recommendations for 4x4GB 1866Mhz memory kit?

Do you mean 2 brown, 4 black, 2 grey SATA connectors? I have the exact same board but mine are white, black, grey. The brown and grey should be your 6gb SATA connection which you should plug in your HDDs to. The black ones you can use for your optical drives since they are your 3gb slots. As for memory I have always stuck with corsair or kingston, the corsair vengeance is pretty good. Hopefully this helps.
