Solved Do the latest motherboard support older SATA drives Tags: Hard Drives SATA Support Motherboards Storage Last response: March 29, 2012 5:18 AM in Storage Share eh936 March 17, 2012 5:59:03 AM I was just curious to know whether the newer motherboards i.e. LGA1155 support older SATA drives like the 1.5Gb/s ?
