I have a Rev B2 AsRock Motherboard, it has 6, yes 6, 6.0 motherboard connectors, the problems with the Cougar point recall was with the SATA3 ports. Can I use the SATA 6.0 ports to connect SATA Optical drives to? Is it backwards compatible? If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

Yes it is. I have all of my Sata 3.0 devices plugged into my 6.0 ports with no issues.
