Connecting DVD writer: Sata 6Gb/s or Sata 3Gb/s?


I bought an LG DVD ( )burner and Im not sure if I should connect it to a Sata 6Gb/s port or if it does not take advantage of the bigger bandwidth at all.

I have an Asrock Z77 Pro3 Motherboard.

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

    It won't even take full advantage of the 3 Gb/s speeds. I'd put it into the 3 Gb/s port to leave your 6 Gb/s ports open for further expansion like SSDs.
  2. DVD drives only requires even at SATA 1 (1.5 Gbps)
  3. Got it, thank you both for the responses!
