Going to be starting my first build but not sure about sata controller. Before installing windows I want to make sure I have the bios settings right. The Asus book says to set sata port #5 to IDE and plug the optical drive into it. But not sure about 1-4. Some web sites say to put them on AHCI and other sites say if I am using two drives (SSD and HDD) to use raid 0. Which is correct?



CPU: AMD FX-6350 3.9GHz 6-Core Processor
Motherboard: Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard
Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk
Storage: Western Digital BLACK SERIES 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: Asus Radeon R7 250X 2GB Video Card
Case: Cougar Archon ATX Mid Tower Case
Power Supply: Corsair RM 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24F1ST DVD/CD Writer
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (64-bit)

Thanks
