Use SSD cache port sa "normal" port?

Hello!

 

I got an Asus p8z77-v Deluxe motherboard and i wonder if i can use the 2 sata ports with SSD CACHE stickers on as "normal" sata ports?

 

I tried to connect an ordinary hdd to it but when i started the computer up it just staid with a black screen and didnt load.

Normally you should be able to. Is your bios set to boot from that drive?

Core i7 2600  Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3P-B3  EVGA GTX 970 FTW  16Gb 1600Mhz G.SKILL

The bios is set to boot from the ssd which is connected to the Intel 6gb/s chipset

 

But the screen is black before i have a chance to go into the bios

Make sure that the Marvell controller is enabled in the bios as those two ports are controlled by Marvell and not Intel.
