ports 1 and 2 are Intel 6.0 Gbps, 3-6 are the Intel 3.0 Gbps, and 7 and 8 are Marvell 6.0 Gbps.

They will only be faster if your SSD is SATA 3 though

got bored last night and pushed the OC the 2500k to 4.7GHz and ran prime 95 blend overnight. Was still running when I work up, temps were 69* on air. Not bad and seems solid enough for normal use.

Just in case anyone else has the same problem as I had, I'm going to share my fix. I installed Windows 7 in AHCI mode for my SATA drives and the problem I had was that every time i accessed any of my drives, the computer would "hang" from anywhere between 5 and 30 seconds. The fix was simple - I switched to IDE mode and the problem is gone

What do you guys think of this new z68 board in the $130 range http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130618 it suppose to only have 6 phase change do yall think that's good enough for a stable 4.5ghz OC?

Hello everyone. This is my first post here. Been reading this thread for a while now. I just finished building my rig and got into OCing tonight. I pretty much followed Bio's guide to the letter. Put Vdroop Control on Auto. Contrary to basically everyone, I am not getting an increase in voltage on load ?

I set 1.32 Vcore in the BIOS (1.D), running at 4.5 GHz. At idle, Vcore is 1.312and at load (Prime95) I'm getting 1.304. I don't understand why this is happening, but I kinda like it.

Cheers
