Yes, it should work fine. Your mobo has SATA II ports (more properly, SATA 3Gb/s). But any SATA 6 Gb/s drive is supposed to automatically negotiate the communication speed with the port it is connected to and adapt to that instantly. That's an essential part of the backwards compatibility of SATA designs.
