what sata ports to use for raid on asus p8-p67 pro?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hello guys i need some advise here. I have two WD 750GB size both sata3(6Gb/s). My question is which ports should i use to set up a RAID 1 on an Asus P8-P67 PRO. Should i be using the Grey ones or the light blue ones(Marvell controller)?

I already use one of the grey ones for my ssd(OS use only) so should i leave it there and use the Marvel ones or use the Marvel for the ssd and use the others for the raid?

Grey ones.

The mobo has 6 native SATA ports..... I assume you have a SSD, ODD, and 2 HDD?

You can just disable the Marvel controller until you need it.

Well it has 8 sata ports, 4 sata2 and 4 sata3. I currently use one sata 3(grey one) for the ssd and 2 of the sata2, one for optical drive and one for another sata2 disk used for storage. I will add another two in raid1 both sata3 and i was wondering which sata3 ports to use. So you suggest to remove the ssd from the Grey sata port and putting it on the marvel ones and use the grey for the raid?

Motherboard is rev 3 if that makes any difference.
