Samsung 840 ssd with samsung magician says my card wont use sata 3 tech because my machine does not support it.
however, when i use crystaldisk (a sata identifier) it says i am in fact using the sata/600 tech that samsung is not picking up?

My current read and writes are ~220 mbps and im wondering if i can improve that by using the best sata port. Am i actually using the sata 3 but magician isn't identifying correctly?

Any feedback appreciated.

I guess the verdict is my mobo is only sata 2. Will a sata 3 pci card be a good idea?
