Well I figured it out, but thanks...

Asmedia ports are just a 3rd party controller, probably best avoided unless needed? SO Im going put both drives on the intel ports. I didnt realize that the intel chipset only included 2 SATA3 ports.

As far as installing both drives before I install windows, I'm still unclear about. I'm sure it doesnt matter in long run but I don't want the board to think I have a raid setup. Is it best to install the 2nd drive after windows?
Thanks, new build:
