I have the M5A88-m motherboard, which has SATA III connectors. I just got a SSD that supports SATA III. Do I need a different connector than what I've used for SATA I or II?

When I look at Specyy for my system, it says the transfer mode is SATA III, but the interface is SATA.

Does that mean it's performing at the SATA III rate?

Hi, A couple of points if the only SATA III ports are Marvell don't bother with them.

As a general rule a SATA III device hooked up to a SATA III port runs at that speed. Use a SATA II or SAT I port and get the speed of the port. And of course a SATA device can only run at teh speed of the slowest part.
