Hello guys,
I am trying to connect ssd to my motherboard (GA H61 ma d3v), but the problem is that it only has 4 SATA II ports (and 3 are already blocked by a GPU because of a terrible design of this low end mb) and 2 GSATA (Marvell 88SE9172) ports.
SO I wanted to ask is it better to connect ssd to SATA 2 and HDD to GSATA (I will try to down spin it anyway to stop it vibrating) because I read that people face problems using marvell ports and its in general worse than intel sata port. Or should I use ssd via Gsata?

MB: GA h61ma d3v
GPU: asus 960 strix
SSD: Crucial MX500
