Hi folks,

OS - Windows/Linux

Can SATA 3 (SATA III) Hard disk be run on motherboard which only supports SATA II, except sacrificing the speed (throughput)? TIA

Yes. SATA was designed to be forwards and backwards-compatible with each respective version.

Advice noted. Thanks

I haven't purchased the SATA 3 HD yet.

I need a HD but the mobo of the PCs here only support SATA II. I consider it is NOT advisable to get a SATA II HD. As all the PC will be upgraded (to retire) sooner, but NOT immediately. For such a reason I set my eye on SATA 3 HD.
