Solved MegaRAID SAS 9260-4i 6Gb/s SLI MegaRaid Card Plugged into PCI Express X16 3Gb/s Board Tags: Storage MegaRAID Motherboards PCI Express Last response: December 22, 2013 3:39 PM in Storage Share eProvided_Com December 22, 2013 8:32:10 AM He peeps I have a GA-G41MT-S2PT motherboard with: [1 x PCI Express x16 slot] Slot: Motherboard support only 3Gb/s I have a: [LSI MegaRAID SAS 9260-4i card being used in that slot This card is a: [6Gb/s SLI MegaRaid Card] Can this [Raid0 SSD setup] on this [LSI Card] run at 6/Gb/s as this port is PCI Express x16. I guess what I am asking is if the Raid card is a 6Gb/s card plugged into this PCI Express 16 port but motherboard says it's 3Gb/s supported can I get that card to operate then at 6Gb/s? Wow hard to explain this one, lol.

A SATA 3 (6Gb/s) RAID card will work at 6Gb/s speeds if it is connected to a PCIe x16 slot.
