SATA 1.5GBS port on MB Tags: Motherboards SATA Hard Drives Overclocking Last response: March 2, 2007 2:20 PM in Overclocking Share lucas_donaldson March 2, 2007 1:27:15 PM 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.
