Hi,

 

Because of another thread I've just spent several hours trying to work out why my machine won't do SATA3.

 

Running Debian Jessie.

 

root@mispc4-deb:/boot/grub# dmesg | grep SATA
[    0.627200] ahci 0000:00:1f.2: AHCI 0001.0300 32 slots 4 ports 3 Gbps 0x3 impl SATA mode

Here, I'll answer my own question. (just in case anyone was wondering)

00:1f.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corporation H61 Express Chipset Family LPC Controller (rev 04)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1155#Original_Sandy_Bridge_chipsets

 

Chipset has limitations and can't provide sata 3.

@TsVk!:  So it's not possible to modify your CPU to make this happen?  Exactly which Ivy Bridge CPU do you have?

 

I was just trying to understand all of this, it is quite interesting.  I had like 8 Wiki's open from that one link trying to understand if it is possible to modify your cpu to be SATA 3 Compatible.

 

I noticed this, does that help? and some other things but not sure about most of them lol.

" Although some of the chipsets do not support conventional PCI, motherboard manufacturers may include support through the addition of third-party PCI bridges."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1155#Notes

 

Good luck!

It's not the CPU that's incompatible, it the motherboard chipset.

 

See post #2, reference the link.

 

edit: (hint: look at the H61 specifications)

Yeah, it's a good forum.

 

Can get the answer I need when my home forum here can't help.

From what I understood of those Wiki's, some mother boards using Sandy Bridge are compatible with other chipsets, and those chipsets enable sata 3.

That doesn't change my lspci output though.

 

This thread has been solved since post #2.
