From what I have gathered, the e-sata port, and the 5th sata connector, near the I/O panel on the board are connected to the Silicon Raid controller.
My question is, if I disable the Silicon Raid controller in Bios, like I did with A8N-SLI Deluxe, does that disable the connectors completely, or can I use them as regular sata connectors? If I do Raid, it will be off the nvidia controller, so want to use those two for an optical drive, and an external backup drive.
