SATA 6.0 , Can Optical drives connect to it

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.
