Solved SSD and HDD at the same time? Tags: SSD SATA Hard Drives Storage Last response: December 11, 2011 7:53 PM in Storage Share smeelo December 11, 2011 7:01:19 PM I am soon planning to get a Corsair Force 3 series 90gb sata III SSD to install windows 7 and battlefield 3 to. My question is that can I have the sata III SSD running at the same time as my sata II HDD and keep the SSD at sata III speed? I'm worried that with a sata II drive running at the same time that the motherboard will run the SSD at sata II speeds also.
