Which SATA3 (6 Gb) controller to use on motherboard with Intel 510 SSD

I was not able to wait for a revised Intel 1155 Motherboard, so I purchased an Asus motherboard about 10 days ago. I also have an Intel 510 120 Gb SSD. I noticed from various reviews of the 510 that it uses a Marvell 88SS9174 Controller. My Asus Sabertooth P67 motherboard comes with 2 different SATA3 (6Gb) controllers on the motherboard, one Intel and one Marvell. Should I use the Marvell motherboard SATA3 (6Gb) controller for my Intel 510 SSD (with internal Marvell controller), or use the Intel SATA3 (6Gb) motherboard controller?

Use the native Intel SATA 6Gb/s controller for best performance. If you aren't using the Marvell controller, you can disable it to save a few seconds during boot.
