Quick question!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
A friend of mine is wanting to purchase a MB that has only SATA 6GB/s ports on it for the drives. No 3.0GB/s, with him having only SATA II will he be able to plug a hardrive into it if it connects by SATA 3.0GB/s?? I just wasnt sure if you can connect backwards that way.

thanks for help!
