SATA 1.5GBS port on MB

The motherboard I'm buying says the SATA ports are 1.5GBS but the hard drive I'm buying is 3.0GBS. Will these components play well together? Will the hard drive just back down to the MB speed? Thanks in advance.

  1. There should be a jumper on the drive that will set it to 1.5gb/s.
  2. you should be fine; some drives are backwards compatible, and yas HawkEye said - there might be a jumper.

    you probably won't notice a difference in performance, not sure if the HD even uses all of SATA1 bandwidth, let alone SATA2.

    in any case, check the manufacturers website
