Examples 1) A SATA II device on a SATA II port = SATA II speeds and a SATA III device on a SATA III port = SATA III speeds on the same motherboard. 2) A SATA II device on a SATA II port = SATA II speeds and a SATA III device on a SATA II port = SATA II speeds on the same motherboard. 3) A SATA II device on a SATA III port = SATA II speeds and a SATA III device on a SATA III port = SATA III speeds on the same motherboard. Basically, the drive will run at the SATA controllers speed, be it SATA II or SATA III, along with mixed controllers being used. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
