  1. All sata is backward compatable.
  2. Best answer
    As Hawkeye22 indicated, yes the sata ports are backwaed compatable.
    Recommend that you place on a sata II port, don't waste a Sata III port.
    Exception, if have a Unused marvel based Sata III port that would be OK as it is not as good as using an Intel sata III port when using a SATA II/Sata III SSD.
