Will the SATAIII port on the motherboard work with my SATAII harddrive? Same cable?

Love my Crosshair, no NB temp problems thus far. It'd be so easy to fix anyhow that even if I did I'd still recommend it.

Count me as another happy Crosshair owner. I've had mine since August and I've had no NB overheating issues.
