Sata2 Hdd plugged into sata3 - Asus P8Z68-V pro

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi

Im new to computer building.

I have asus p8z68-v pro board and i have a sata3 ssd, which is plugged into the sata3 port on the intel controller buti also have my old sata2 hdd plugged into the other sata3 port on the intel controller.

Does this make any difference to performance putting an older sata2 drive into the sata3 port, i do have sata2 ports available

Your performance will not increase by having the SATA2 drive plugged into a SATA3 port, but there will be no compatibility issues. SATA is completely backwards compatible.
