    I don't understand. Isn't SATA II is (3Gb/s) and SATA III is (6Gb/s)? Correct me If I'm wrong.
  4. The coolermaster scout is a good value case so stick with it just buy a SATA III hdd and not a SATA II.

    The above uses the latest SATA III interface running at a theoretical 6gb/s
    Rather than the old interface SATA II running at a theoretical 3gb/s
