Asus Sabertooth P67 and SATA 6Gb/s

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
The Asus Sabertooth P67 has two SATA 6Gb/s pairs of connectors. One pair is through the Intel P67 Express Chipset and the other pair is through the Marvell PCIe 6.0Gb/s controller. My question is, which is the better choice for connecting my SSD to and what's the difference between the two?

The intel ones are superior

IIRC they have the same read capacity but the Intel has a faster write capacity

So if I don't have any devices connected to the Marvell SATA controller, do I still need to install the drivers for it in Win7?

You are better off disabling it in the bios or it will show a screen everytime you boot.

Yeah, I just looked at the manual and saw that it can be disabled.

Is the JMicron JMB362 SATA Controller only for eSATA on the Sabertooth P67?

Is OptionRom the boot menus for each device/controller?

Also, the Marvell Sata ports are only for data drives - ATAPI is not supported. I use one for my DVD burner and the other for the front E-Sata. This leaves the other 6 SATA ports for my system drives.

Well, the DVD burner I have is SATA 3Gb/s so this won't be a problem for me at the moment but maybe in the future if I decide to upgrade my DVD/Bluray drives.

How do you know it doesn't support ATAPI? Is it from personal experience or did you read it somewhere? If the latter, can you post a link to the article?

The ATAPI info is actually from the users manual - page 2-17 in the little finger-pointing section below the pic - direct quote "The SATA6G_E1E2 (gray) connectors are for data drives only. ATAPI device [sic] is not supported."

That sucks about no ATAPI devices. Anyway, I don't have many storage/ATAPI devices so I should be ok.

I would appreciate it if someone can answer my questions about JMicron and the OptionRom. I haven't build a PC in 4 years and a lot of these settings are new to me.
