    So my hard drive just crashed a few days ago rip. Being that it is gone I want to upgrade to a 128g ssd and second Tera byte drive. The question I have is if both of my sata 6 are being used can I plug a second hd into a sata 4 or 5? Or would I need a specific hd for that. I am not sure I described it great but can post a picture if I need to, any help would be cool.

    What do you mean by sata 6? Do you mean sata transfer speed (ie. 6gbit/s)? or connection to the mobo? How many free sata ports do you have?

    What Cedwyn said.

    Sony, you either have 3GB, 6GB, or 12GB sata connections. the numbers on the board are just the port #. It doesn't matter which one you use; plug your primary drive into #1 and #2, they are usually different color from the others (blue vs black).
