    Gigabyte x58 Board + Samsung 850EVO SSD

    Hello there
    Well i still got my x58 pc and i will upgrade the coming summer.resently i bought a Samsung 850 EVO SSD3 6gb
    My Board has 6x Sata 2 Intel Ports and 4 Marvel Sata3 Ports ( Bios all on AHCI-Bios Settings are correct)
    The Question is:
    Should i use the Intel Sata2 Ports or the Marvell Sata3 ?
    I Did some Benchmarks seems Marvel is a bit faster .But still ..
    What you guys recoment?

    Well i read here and there marvel sata3 is slower than intel sata2 etc etc . but didnt find any proof.as i sayd my benchmars show marvel is faster but not as it must be. sata3 should max spead/write speeds but i dont get more than 300-350 read/write speeds on sata3.
    or maybe i do something wrong?

    The only way the Marvell controller is slower is that it's an additional drive controller to be loaded at the initial boot, but being as it's probably already enabled, then that's not a problem! Use the SATA III Marvell port

    These aren't rhetorical questions:

    Does the Win 10 installer include drivers for the Marvell controller?

    Would Windows 10 install on a drive on the Marvell controller even without special drivers?

    Does Win 10 support the installation of extra drivers during the Windows installation? (Prior versions of Windows: invoked by the F6 hotkey.)
