see no reason it wont work on that board--though if you use the sata 6gbs ports you wont get full speed as

thats a 3gbs drive

That hard drive will work A-OK and don't worry about it being a non SATA 6 drive, it makes zero difference in a spinner drive. The real question is why are you ordering a old school 890 AM3 board when you can get a similar 990 AM3+ for less money. If you like Asus boards maybe consider this one.
