pretty sure anyway..
for Sata III SSDs, you would loose a bit of performance going from a SATA III slot to a II. HDDs aren't fast enough to really go beyond SATA II speeds anyway, so it wouldn't matter for them. That's why I said to save the III ports for the SSDs if he could, it's a better use of them.

I was going to recommend that you get a mobo that will leave at least one space between the twin frozr 6950s since I've heard they got hot in cf if they're too close to each other, but it looks like the mobo you picked already fits the bill. Even so, you'd probably benefit from having a side panel fan on them. I'm not sure if using it as a intake or exhaust will benefit you more though.

I'd have to recommend that he go with an intake side panel fan. Because the gpus require fresh air to cool them sufficiently, an exhaust fan is counter productive. An intake would allow for clean fresh air from the outside to be used first by the gpu
