I have an Abit AB9 QuadGT motherboard which has a SATA-II controller.
Both SSD and HDD are SATA-II and the optical drives are SATA-I.
I have just run CrystalDiskInfo and this is reporting that both SSD and HDD are connected at SATA-I (1.5 Gbps), not SATA-II (3.0 Gbps).
I have the BIOS set up to use SATA drives in IDE mode.
So a few questions:
Is CrystalDiskInfo reporting correctly?
Are the optical drives causing the SSD & HDD to connect at the slower rate?
Is there any setting to force the SSD & HDD to use SATA-II?
I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate.
