SATA II HD on SATA III port

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
It's not the usual question, I know that it will work fine.
What I would like to know is whether the HD could get a performance gain.
I know that the speed depends on the drive itself but for whatever reason could it get a very very very little perfomance gain?
My HD is the Samsung Spinpoint F4 320GB (HD322GJ).

It wouldn't make any difference on a mechanical drive. You might notice it on the higher end SSD's etc.

That is what I'm talking about, thanks.

Considering that SSD's barely touch the limits of SATAII there is no chance a mechanical drive would. Tbh all you probably saw was the benefits of a clean drive.
