Yes, using the SATA 3 6gbps ports means you're ok:
This is an issues with the 6 series chipset (Cougar Point) impacting SATA ports 2-5. If you are using ports 0 and 1 there are no issues. The issue was root caused and a new stepping (B2) is coming end of March.

If you have purchased 6 series platforms, call your supplier to return them (if you are intending to use SATA ports 2-5) All the ODM’s and OEM’s are notified and are being notified and they can give you more detail (or you can use me if you have more questions)

Oh glad that i'm with asus board, it has 8 Sata ports
0 - 1 = Marvell sata 3: okay
0 - 1 = Intel sata 3: okay
2 - 5 = Intel sata 2: fail

but, to move my SSD from Sata Intel to Marvell is really bad idea
it slow!
