1TB Caviar HD SATA 6Gb/s

I just bought a Hard Drive 1TB Caviar SATA 6Gb/s from Neweggs online store to install it on my PC which has a Motherboard Gigabyte P55 UD4P and an Intel Core i5 750 1156 Socket processor, Nvidia GTX 260 Palit. Anyway I found out that this board only support 3Gb SATA. I have not install it yet, so my question is Can I install the 1TB Hard Drive SATA 6Gb on my PC which support up to 3Gb .I will appreciated!

    Yes, you shouldn't have any problem with compatibility, and the speed will just bottleneck at 3GB/s.
  2. I agree. Most things is legacy meaning backwards compatible, it just means you may not get the full experience ur expecting. If the computer supports 3 gigs it will only do 3 gigs. To experience the full 6 gigs u of course need to buy a motherboard that supports it. Good Luck.
  3. Is there any HDD that can saturate 3Gb/s SATA?
  4. No HDD will saturate 3Gb/s yet, only the cache.
