Look in your manual and find the Intel controlled ports.

Intel sata 6 and the Intel sata 3 should be used.

The white ports are Intel SATA 6GB/s, the light blue are SATA 3GB/s

SATA 2 SSD in SATA 2 port or SATA 3 port ans the SATA 3 SSD in the SATA 3 port.

I just checked out your motherboard. Ya you want to use the Gray port for the Sata 3 SSD and the Light blue ports for Sata 2. If you wanna squeeze some boot time or remove unnecessary drivers from your computer I would (and do) 100% disable the Marvell ports and the JMicron controller in the BIOS, assuming you aren't using those for anything. Marvell ports have a history of being terrible and sinking your SSD's speed.

As far as I know, no. I have the P8P67 Pro motherboard, a lot like yours, and I disabled the Jmicron and the Marvells. If you do encounter anything weird just re-enable them!

No.. The J-micron controller is for your e-SATA connections on the rear panel, and the front expansion header. Only needed if you use the external SATA. the marvel controller controlls the two (I think dark blue) sata connectors on the motherboard. If you have nothing plugged into these (you shouldn't unless you've filled all the intel connectors), turning off in the UEFI saves a couple of seconds on boot.

My bad.. should have looked at your motherboard in your sig. the J-Micron controller is for the two rear panel e-sata connectors. Now that I think of it, I don't think the P8P67 deluxe has an internal e-SATA connection on the motherboard, so if you are connected to a standard SATA connector on the motherboard, turning off the J-Micron controller will not affect the front panel sata connection.

I was thinking e-SATA when I first posted, and realized after your post, that what I was really thinking of, was the FireWire 1394 connection mid board... not e-SATA. Sorry for the confusion.
