Upgrade to SB worth it?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hey all, from my current sig rig would it be worth upgrading to:

Intel 2500k + Thermalright Silver Arrow
Asus P8P67 PRO
2x Samsung 1Tb F3's
4Gb Corsair XMS3 1600Mhz 9-9-9-24
Nvidia GTX480

If so, due to the sata issues with the P67 and whatnot, which sata ports should I use? The Asus P8P67 PRO has:

2 xSATA 6.0 Gb/s ports (gray)
4 xSATA 3.0 Gb/s ports (blue)
Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Support RAID 0,1,5,10

Marvell® 9120 controller
2 xSATA 6.0 Gb/s ports (navy blue)*

And what's the difference between the navy blue sata 6gb/s and the gray sata 6gb/s?

Thanks

Yes it will be a massive speed boost for your system (In terms of benchmarks and startups etc and FPS).

Make sure to plug your HDDs into the sata 6gb/s so you can skip the issues with the 3gb/s sata

the 2 onboard are intel sata 6gbs, the back are marvell 6gbs I'm pretty sure.

You can use both those the 2 onboard and the 2 in the back with esata to sata cables around 4 bucks on amazon.

No I didn't list the esata ones on the back, which are on a jmicron controller

Here's an image which might help people help me




2 xSATA 6.0 Gb/s ports (gray)
4 xSATA 3.0 Gb/s ports (blue)
Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Support RAID 0,1,5,10

Marvell® 9120 controller
2 xSATA 6.0 Gb/s ports (navy blue)

JMicron® JMB362 SATA controller
2 xExternal SATA 3.0 Gb/s ports

So only use the gray and navy blue ports? Is there a performance difference between the Intel 6gb/s and the marvell 6gb/s?

Oh yea sorry I'm not real familiar with the asus boards but you get the idea.

I'm on a p67 ud4 so the ports are marvell in the back.

But yea only use marvel and intel 6gbs, the jmicron might not be affected tho I'm not real sure on that.

I would use the intel for say a ssd or something just because I imagine it's a better controller and then marvell for storage hard drives.

The 2 grey SATA III ports are controlled by the 6 series chip. The 2 Navy are Marvell

From the grapevine, here's what you "should" do:

SSD(s) into the gray
HDD(s) into the navy blue
If at that point you have any left over SATA III ports, use them for DVD drives, etc.

As a last resort, the DVD drives can be used in the SATA II ports.

If you're not in love with the ASUS board, perhaps you could consider an AsRock Extreme6 or Fatal1ty, as they both have 6 SATA III ports each

Well as you can see from my original post I'm not getting any SSDs, so would it be find to put my 2x Samsung F3's Raid 0 in the gray ports?
