  1. I am getting ready to install my ssd on my new build. I will need to install it in the sata 6Gb/s but am wondering which ones people usually use. Do you use the on controlled by the Z68 or the Marvell chip? What is preferred? Thanks.

    That is a joke about surfing the internet. I do a lot of video work and I needed something with some more pop. Thanks.
    I have spent a long time looking for good deals on good products. I saved almost 1 grand on these components compared to what I would have paid without sales or rebates. There may be better components out there but not for the price I ended up paying that's for sure.

    The Intel chipset ports perform far better than Marvell and JMicron controlled ports.
