GT on Sata1?

Recommended Posts

I'm getting a 120Gb Force GT. I have a P35 board now which only have SATA1.

Can I connect the GT to a Sata1 port just to update the firmware?

Windows7 is on the HDD

Can my files in the HDD get corrupted if I enable AHCI within Windows?

 

I dont know if my board has the AHCI option. Emaxx P35 pro

1. Yes, AHCI needs to be enabled.

2. No, If there are really really important files just make a backup incase anything wrong happens.

3. Check your motherboard's user manual.

 

Are you intending to upgrade your computer soon?, Having an SSD on SATA I will only give a tiny boost in performance.

Yes, I'm getting an Asrock Z68 board. Just waiting for it to come on stock again

I would recommend you to wait until your new mobo arrives. There might be issues with some older chipsets. Make sure you connect your SSD to the very first Intel SATA3 port (e.g. SATA3_0) and you will be fine. AHCI should be enabled by default. Since you are buying a new Force GT it is most likely that it will be shipped with most recent FW version (1.3.3).
