I have a dilemma. I have 3 storage drives on my PC. My C drive (SSD) is used for O/S, Applications. The other 2 drives are D for media and E for video-editing project files. The problem is I only have 2 SATA6 ports on the motherboard. The drives on the SATA6 ports currently are Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB each, running @ 7500 rpm. Should I switch the SSD to the SATA6 port and use the other SATA6 port for just 1 of the other drives? The remaining drive would have to be connected to a SATA3 port. Or should I move both the 2- 1TB HDDs to the SATA3 connection? Thanks for any info.:) Elwoodbluesman
Been four weeks since I originally posted this topic. Any info would be MUCH appreciated:)
Your existing configuration sounds fine. Are you having some kind of problem that has triggered the question ?

nealeh, thanks for the reply. No, I'm not having any particular problem- just want to get the most out of my SSD. My question is; Is it better to have the two SATA3- 6 gbps ports connected to the media and projects drives or use SATA2 ports, there by enabling me to connect the SSD to the SATA3 port?
