I am looking into building a set of machines having 4 SATA III disks each and an i5-3450S CPU. The SATA III has a 6-Gb/s interface, and the i5-3450S has a 5-GT/s DMI bus. I am having trouble :mapping gigatransfers to gigabits in order to figure out how much of the SATA III 6-Gb/s interface the CPU will be able to utilize.

Any pointers are appreciated.
