My System Specs

Default

You are correct about the audio connector, it will plug into the AAFP port. However, you will use "ac97" or "hdaudio" connector depends on what you use in the BIOS. I typically use "hdaudio" and make sure the BIOS reflects that.

I think your black SATA connector is just a "bonus" connector that they've added because they could. They wanted to include PATA on this motherboard and the chipset they used to include PATA came with a bonus SATA connector. I just assume they said "Hell why not" and just connected it for you.

I would connector your HDs to either the 6 Intel ports or the 2 Marvell ones.
