Title says it all.
Technically it can go into both. Ideally you want all devices on SATA3 (6Gbps)
Thanks a lot for the info, I'm gonna do that. :)
Either should work fine, and both will likely have comparable performance. Platter drives typically do not max out a SATA 3Gb port, even if they are SATA 6Gb based. However, if your drive is SATA 6 and you have a SATA 6 port available, it certainly doesn't hurt to use that port.
Okay thanks a lot, I was just confused because my friend's cousin built a pc, and his hard drive did not work when he connected it in the sata 6gb/s port. It was a WD Blue 1TB. Thanks again!
Some mobos have third party chip to provide additional 6 Gb/s ports. For example, MSI Z77A-GD65, the chipset only provides 2 native SATA 6 Gb/s ports controlled by the Intel chipset but has additional 2 ports controlled by Asmedia. Those connected to the Asmedia ports requires drivers and configuration setup...
