Solved Using a SAS to SATA adaptor Tags: Hard Drives SATA Motherboards Storage Last response: September 20, 2010 5:34 PM in Storage Share jrosenow1 September 20, 2010 2:11:53 PM I have a Cheetah 15K HD and want to buy an adaptor to use with my desktop motherboard. I have a motherboard with SATA @ 6Gb/s. Will my motherboard fully support the 15K drive or will there be some other bottleneck rendering it less than optimal?
