Today I received the final parts of my PC rebuild. Over the last month I have replaced case, Mboard, CPU, GFX, PSU and today I received my SSD, HDD and new ram.

I keep reading on guides that I should always install SSD to the Intel SATA port not the Marvel but my Mboard is a gigabyte and the manual  does notspecify which of my 4x SATA 3 ports or my 2x SATA 2 ports are which. Help?

My processor is an Intel btw I'm not running AMD.

Also I'm writing this on my surface so apologies for spelling mistakes.

Thanks in advance

It may be that your motherboard doesn't have any Marvell SATA ports and only Intel ones

That is my understanding that Intel are the good ports

Depends on your board model number, without knowing there is not much input we can give.
Mine are coloured differently, SATA2 are intel, SATA3 are Marvel.
