  1. just thought I would come back.... it was an easy one... the SATA 3 ports were set to ACHI and they needed to be IDE with my drives Switched in Bios and works... but you are correct.. no difference in speed
  2. Yes... the Hard drives work perfectly on the SATA 2 ports...... but when I plug them in to the SATA 3... they aren't even seen in the BIOS... and as I mentioned.. the optical drive IS.... that is the weird thing as I know for a fact the optical drive is not SATA 3 either...... I guess it is no biggy.... just curious.
  3. Repost with correction Finally have everything up and running!! Zooom! Couple minor hiccups in the switch..... one strange one though.... Tried plugging my internal drives into the SATA 3.0 headers (Contrary to lots of reports I read, the install of the Chipset 3.0 drivers went fine) ANd neither of my drives were even recognized (I know they are older and not 3.0 drives...but I thought they would at least be recognized) But...My DVD drive, which also is Not 3.0 IS recognized......... any ideas on that??? thanks
  4. I concur... intake front low egress high and rear.... that being said EVERY system is different... test different configurations. cable placement, carpet floor vs wood floor, location under a desk, etc. etc. etc all change things. put them one way.... test... switch them around.. test. etc
  5. Hmmm... 4200 I would think it should be a bit better... any obvious bottlenecks? http://www.3dmark.com/pcm7/690171 details of setup in link
