Quick SSD Question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello, I'm about buy a c300 SSD and i had a quick question.. my motherboard is an asus p8p67 pro and i noticed i have two sata 6.0 ports 2 gray and 2 blue.. i think the blue ones are the marvel ones.. and i noticed a post on trim not being supported by marvel controllers.. does anyone know if my gray ports on my mobo will? or which ports are the best to install my ssd on? or if there is any difference in performance between the two? thanks

I'm helping a friend of mine right now on a C300 SATA III drive. That's why I'm here to find out if there is a Intel RST controller driver avaiable for a SATA III drive. He tried the old Intel RST and said it's only for a SATA II drive.
But one thing I can help you with, that he was having problems with is, only the 2nd SATA III connector (he only has 2 on his Sabertooth MB) works with SATA III, the 1st one only works with SATA II for some reason. It's a MB fault as all MBs 1st SATA III ports don't work. It is of course back compatible to SATA II so can be used for a DVD or SATA II SSD-HDD.
When/if I find a SATA III controller I'll report back to this post for you.
