SATA3 Channel Splitter or Convert SATA2 Channel to SATA3?
posted by KRS to computers & internet (2 answers total)
My new Acer Predator computer has 6 SATA connections on the motherboard, of which 5 are SATA2 and only number 0 is the faster SATA3. I got an extra 4TB hard drive which is also SATA3. It works in a SATA2 channel, but only at SATA2 speed.
Is there a splitter for the SATA3 channel, or a way to convert one of the SATA2s?
Alternatively, will the setup database get confused if I move everything on drive 0 to the new drive, switch the new one to the SATA3 channel and make it the boot drive?
