Most SDDs need a SATA 6GB/s connection to reach their maximum speed. Why was it difficult to gets things working on the SATA 6GB/s ports?
My Crucial m4 SSD runs fine on my DZ68BC, but I am not using it as a cache. Did you install the latest revision of the Intel Rapid Storage Driver, v10.8.0.1003 at the moment (2012-1-18). For some reason the driver download page of the DZ68BC lists an older revision, but other Intel download pages provide the link. You can also double check if your board has the latest BIOS revision. I would assume that just moving the cables will do the trick. Other thinks I can think of are: bad sata cable, check for newer SDD firmware revision.
vbaderks, thank you for the prompt answer to my query. I bit the bullet and made the SSD a boot drive using my TB drive for data. Probably the best solution. Both work perfectly on the 6 Gb/s bus. I really didnt think there would be enough room on the 64 gig SSD for the OS and assorted programs - however I was mistaken. Plenty of room remaining after Win7 install.
