I am getting ready to install my ssd on my new build. I will need to install it in the sata 6Gb/s but am wondering which ones people usually use. Do you use the on controlled by the Z68 or the Marvell chip? What is preferred? Thanks.

I would always choose an intel controller over marvell. Make sure the mode is set to ahci and you do the necessary tweaks for a ssd drive. If you do not want to do them manually, you can download any number of tweak utilities.

It is a brand new GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD4-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68. I think so:rolleyes:

Where can I find the tweaks to do to an SSD?

Good win7 will align partitions correctly and make most of the changes during setup. Just run the tweak utility when you are finished with the install. Done.
