SATA cables 6gb/s

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I put the 6gb/s sata cables in my the 3gb/s slots......my os and everything is installed. Do I have to uninstall everything in order to switch the cables to the 6gb/s slots? i have an asrock extreme9 x79 mobo. Also, does it matter what 6gb/s slot I put the SATA in, or is any of the 6gb ones fine?

-no you can switch up your cables any way you want without doing anything on the software side of things.

-i think its recommended that if your board has 3rd party sata 6gb slots alongside intel slots, its best to use up the intel slots first (slightly better performance)

There is no such thing as a 6 gb/s sata cable, they are all the same. Only thing that makes a difference in speed is the board controller and the drive itself, the cable is just there to transfer data,

The SATA ports on your motherboard:
2 x SATA3 6.0 Gb/s connectors by Intel X79
4 x SATA2 3.0 Gb/s connectors by Intel X79
2 x SATA3 6.0 Gb/s connectors by Marvell SE9220
4 x SATA3 6.0 Gb/s connectors by Marvell SE9172

You want to use the X79 SATA ports first. You can just unplug and plug in. You might have to change the boot order in BIOS.
