Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer larkspur a b G Storage May 25, 2012 8:20:18 PM No. So you are limited to full-saturation on a SATA 3gb/s port. You could get a SATA 6gb/s controller card to add to a PCIe slot. Those can be problematic from what I've heard though. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
