    Have just made up a new PC using the GA-P35-DS3 board.

    This is the first Intel kit I have made up since leaving for AMD many
    years back but now back into INTEL again - thanks to the Duo's.

    This is also the first kit I have made up using SATA, and see that
    GigaByte have their own SATA controller and associated with the purple
    sockets on the board.

    I have connected both my SATA HDDs to these purple sockets (GSATA0 &
    GSATA1) thinking it would be the best option over the standard Intel

    Ok.... doing that, will I have to make any changes in the BIOS to
    activate the GB controller or does all this happen automatically. For
    example, do I need to do anything with the 'SATA AHCI Mode' setting in
    the BIOS ?

  2. Actually, the Intel SATA controller is the best choice UNLESS you plan
    to implement RAID.

    The Gigabyte part is actually a JMicron part and is used in a LOT of
    other motherboards including the Asusp P5B and P5B-E, which is
    functionally almost identical to the Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3
