Any Advice on SSD, HDD, Blu-Ray setup?
I currently have SSD on Primary and HDD secondary (Same PSU cable) Both Black Sata ports on MoBo.(Manual says to use black SATA for HDD..?..)
Blu-Ray is on its own PSU cable and Gold Sata on MoBo.

I'm looking at the Z87 Pro manual now. It's in my hands actually. Where do you see it recommending black ports for a hard drive?

Use the the 2 black data ports they are data 6 much faster.. And its support raid. The yellow sata port are good for later down the road when u need more hard drive space. U can more.. I hope that helped. smile.gif

Ok now that's what I thought I read...
Now I'm confused. I have the manual here as well.
Do we know what page or can we site a website for reference?
I just want to be absolutely sure this setup is as proficient as possible.

ASUS includes a total of eight on-board SATA 6Gb/s ports located just under the chipset cooler. The six gold colored SATA ports are controlled by the Intel Z87 chipset controller. The two black colored SATA ports to the right of the port block are controlled by the ASMedia controller.

So whats the Difference? And How do they effect preformance of the SSD/HDD and Drives?

CTRL+F "SATA" when you get there.

BTW, I have her all set up and ready to power up. Just got to figure this SATA port thing out real quick.
