Hey guys,

I now have:
3 1.5TB Seagate drives. 7200.11 Sata 3GB/s
1 1TB Hitachi 7200 rpm
3 WD Red 3TB Drives intellipower Sata 6gb/s

1. I put the Windows OS on one of the new Seagate 1.5TB drives and I was wondering if I should have put this on the WD Red drive instead as it is SATA 6B/S

2. Which ports on my motherboard should I put the Red Drives on? Currently all of my drives are on the South Bridge. But I know the WD Red can utilize the SATA 6b/s ports should I use these? I read the Micron chip has issues and I wanted forgo any issues, if so would it have been better to have put the OS Drive on the WD RED then?

South Bridge:
6 x SATA 3Gb/s connectors (SATA2_0, SATA2_1, SATA2_2, SATA2_3, SATA2_4, SATA2_5) supporting up to 6 SATA 3Gb/s devices
Support for SATA RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, and RAID 10

Marvell 9128 chip:
2 x SATA 6Gb/s connectors (GSATA3_6, GSATA3_7) supporting up to 2 SATA 6Gb/s devices
Support for SATA RAID 0, and RAID 1
* SATA3 RAID 0 4x and SATA3 2x performance are maximum theoretical values. Actual performance may vary by system configuration.
* SATA3 SSDs are not recommended for use in RAID 0 mode on Marvell SE9128 ports.

GIGABYTE SATA2 chip:
1 x IDE connector supporting ATA-133/100/66/33 and up to 2 IDE devices
2 x SATA 3Gb/s connectors (GSATA2_8, GSATA2_9) supporting up to 2 SATA 3Gb/s devices
Support for SATA RAID 0, RAID 1, and JBOD

JMicron JMB362 chip:
2 x eSATA 3Gb/s connectors (eSATA/USB Combo) on the back panel sup- porting up to 2 SATA 3Gb/s devices
Support for SATA RAID 0, RAID 1, and JBOD

Should I then put the games and other important items on the WD Red NAS 3 TB drive and then put this on the marvell? Or is it better to keep most on the Southbridge?

Use native ports until you run out of them.
