After I added my new SATA drive by using the PERIP port accidentally, my system seemed to become completely unstable. My Thunderbolt PCI-E card in my system is randomly not showing up, my display (also PCI-E) stopped working for a second...
 
But, everything I've read suggested the PERIP port and the SATA port on the PSU are interchangeable. Is that true or is that only the cables that are interchangeable?

    SATA and PERIF are interchangeable, otherwise, the connectors would be keyed different and not fit.
     
    Just make sure you bring the new drive online, then use the wizard to assign a drive letter to it and quick format it so that it's good to go..Roll from there.
