I cannot edit my answer, but I mean which of these should I select from bios

system options \ sata controller options \ 
enable sata legacy options
enable sata ahci support
enable dynamic HP smart Array B120i RAID support

Use ahci sata not legacy, i think its better; I use the raid controller because the fan is  6-8%, with ahci I get 12-17%.

If the 16% fan is not bothering you and you don't need raid for your drives stick with ahci, it offers good performance.
