Calling out to the Gigabyte G1.Sniper 3 users. I'm thinking about getting this board and I understand it has an mSATA port. On the board it states through a sticker that SATA2 #5 port will be inactive when using the mSATA port.

Does this mean that the mSATA port is SATA2 and not SATA3?

Also will it matter if I get a SATA3 SSD and it turns out the port is SATA2, will it still be a good choice for an OS drive?

And lastly, will this support memory speeds such as 2133? It only states on Newegg that it's standard memory is 1600 and it can overclock to 2666 (Like it states Memory Standard: DDR3 2666 (O.C.), 1600, 1333, 1066)

1. Correct, mSATA is SATA II

2. There are no (to my knowledge) SATA III mSATA SSD's. And standard SSD would be plugged in via sata cable to any of the SATAIII ports.

3. Yes, it will support 2133MHz, but you will have to overclock it or set the XML profile.

Gracias amigo.

On question 2 I was referring to the mSATA and Mushkin has a 120GB SATA3 mSATA available. That's why I was wondering.

Ah, you're right.

Yes, if you use that drive it will operate at SATA II speeds, but you shouldn't really notice a hit in performance.
