Its time to install my 3 optical drives and the 3 extra hard drives into my case. Any help or advice on how to split the drives, masters settings or Slave for each drive. Also any thoughts on optical to Motherboard and hard drive to additional card, or mix them up etc, and best card to use. From experience I wont be using the promise 133, could never get one to run on my older Asus board. System Specs below. My thanks in advance.
