Default Quick ? number 2 ... IDE

When using SATA connections on MB for HDDs, should I use the Primary or Secondary IDE ports for my optical drives ... does it matter?

Yeh it doesn't matter. The option of having 2 is so you can have 2 drives in ur comp, for extra space Just as long as ur bios is set to boot the correct drive.
