Red is not native sata controller, but a Marvell sata3 controller, that would explain why it won't let you run that Intel Optimizer

Marvell sata3 controllers just like the nec usb 3.0 are not the ideal controls I won't update my board untill proper native support is implemented into the chipset.

so far only AMD added native support for SATA3 in their chipsets, Intel is being lazy.
That maybe the reason I plug it in the red connector, can I just unplug the drive and replug them in another Sata connector or will that bork my install? thx Niekro for the help.
