SATA 2 and SATA 3 Help!
Dec 11, 2012, 2:21 AM
Well for the rig im building, im going to use a SSD for the boot drive and a Mechanical for storage and such.
My Mobo has 4 SATA 3 slots and 4 SATA 2 slots.
Would i plug both of these drives into the SATA 3 slots?
Is my HDD SATA 3 compatible, or is it only SATA 2 compatible?
Thanks in advance!

it is most optimal to plug both the ssd and hdd into the sata 6.0 ports that are native to the chipset that you are using
then everything else can go on the other sata 6.0 ports or the sata 3.0 ports
