Can they? im looking forward to buying the ASrock 990FX Extreme 4.
Yes. Unless otherwise stated in the motherboard's documentation or the drive's documentation, all three generations of SATA are backwards- and forwards-compatible. You'll just get the speeds from the slowest link in the chain, so to speak.
Well I am running a SATA 3 Gbps HDD and even a SATA 1.5 Gbps HDD in my SATA 6 Gbps mobo and never had a problem.
IIRC both the HDDs and the controllers are backwards compatable
so a 6gb/s drive will work on a 1.0 controller
1.0 drives will work on 6gb/s controllers
the controllers on both the board and the drives have the ability to talk to each other no problem.
Don't buy into the sata 6gbs cable thing either. A sata cable is a sata cable is a sata cable. Link.
yeah, i use the cables that come with the board.
yeah, they are compatible each other
umm btw i think to buy extreme 4 too
nice. im buying next week. well, ordering tomorrow. will arrive next week.
Time to buy one of those gold plated Monster cables for $50 and get a "massive performance boost", just like with HDMI.
Yeah ddd, all the sata standards are compatible with each other, as the others have explained.
yeah, its kinda a good board, many sata and i can use my old dvdrom
and uefi of course
i heard the uefi isnt good. anyways, i dont like uefi at all. too n00bish.
What bugs me about a UEFI BIOS is that there were all those promises about superfast BIOS booting, but it wasn't true. At least if my Asus mobo us anything to go by, as it takes just as long as all my previous mobos with the classic BIOS.
It can seem a bit noobish, but I think the GUI has its place, too.
yeah but the features are promising
as long as it starts without errors, i wont complain
and yes qubit, they are 0% faster than normal bioses.
