Thanks, but I may have been a bit unclear.
I'm not concerned about speed, but just whether an optical drive will work in the intel SATA III ports because the manual seems to say that the SATA III ports are only for Hard Drives.
From what you said, it sounds like it is fine to plug an optical drive into an intel SATA III, but I just wanted to make sure. (I've heard that optical drives generally don't work in the Marvel controlled SATA III ports.)Edited by magogian - 2/26/11 at 8:52pm
