Hi, Darius.

I have a G74SX (Intel HM65 Sandy Bridge) with a Crucial M4 SSD 128 GB SATA 3 as its primary drive.

I'm guessing your question is related to the fact that you have a Motherboard Chipset
with Intel HM65 Cougar Point (B3), and that the older Cougar Point (B2) Chipset may have some
issues with HDD, SSD, and DVD/BD player?

I've read a relatively old white paper from Intel about the Cougar Point (B2) issue:
http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/6/sb/CS-032521.htm?iid=en_US_01_chipset%20gg_headline

and from ASUS:
http://service.asus.com/notice/FAQ.aspx
http://event.asus.com/2011/SandyBridge/notice/

Since you have a Motherboard Chipset with Intel HM65 Cougar Point (B3), I would say your G74SX
isn't affected by the aforementioned (B2) issue, and in relation, would support an SSD SATA 3.

All G74s support SATA 3 for the two HDD ports, and SATA 2 on the ODD port.

SATA 3 is detected automatically....you don't need to configure it.

I have found Intel and Crucial SSDs to be very reliable, solid performers. I don't bother with benchmark testing, since I really don't believe that any differences between brands or models will be noticeable in everyday use. The big, obvious impact is seen when you go from any HDD to any SSD. Variances between SSDs will be miniscule in comparison.
