Rofl. The Geek Who Doesn't Game doesn't exist you're sayin? One hour nap on the kids floor. Must have fallen asleep during sing-song. Another 3 hours on the couch. Coffee. Got the rig out, POSTS and goes to BIOS - the interface for that is nice. I'm gonna go in and hook up the two drives and the GPU. I may have questions. Actually I have one already. I'm pretty sure we found the only cable from the PSU that would fit the GPU plugs. There are three (what do you call them)... inputs on the PSU cable and 2 plugs for the GPU. 3rd is just extra? So, my mobo came with 2 6GB SATA cables, i guess it's one for each of the ODD and SSD. So ya my PSU has a single cable with 3 SATA connections, just like the GPU situation. These are obviously closed circuts, just leave the 3rd one hangin, rignt? General SATA questions: the cables are 6 GB/s, so I'm thinking I fill up both 6 GB/s inputs on the mobo. Neither drives say anything about GB/s. For SATA in general do you just fill up the fastest first? And what about SATA I/II? None of the mobo connections make the distinction. There is however a Marvell SATA connection. Is that one just for super-nerds? SSD SATA hooked up. I have to move the ODD up a few racks, for some reason I chose to have it in the lowest one, so the right-angle SATA won't fit because of the bottom of the drive rack is in the way. In the mobo manual it looks like you can just reverse the SATA cable, but that won't work either cause the right angle won't fit on the mobo.
