I need to add a new content DB (sharepoint 2013). The difference between this one is that it will be on tier 2 storage so will not use the default SQL Server paths for the mdf and log files.
I I create this new DB in SQL Server can I "introduce" it to SharePoint rather than create it in Central Admin?
I know I can use Mount-SPContentDatabase to use an existing content DB but this will be a empty newly created DB does this make a difference?
I could always create it using central admin and then dettach it, move the files to the desired location and then attach it again.
Which is best?

I would suggest you to create using central admin, then detach and attach by moving the files. Let SharePoint create it on default path and then you can move it.

That worked... once I remembered to give the correct NTFS permissions on the new path!
Thanks.
