    ICH5R and SATA II

    I have a SATA II Histachi Deskstar P7K500 that I want to use with my old MSI 865PE Neo2-FIS2R with the ICH5R southbridge. Will the drive work as it is or will I need to disable SATA II and NCQ (if possible) ?

    Re: ICH5R and SATA II

    It should work out straight away, only on rare occasions do you need to do anything. You may run the drive at 1.5Gbps by changing a jumper setting on the end of the SATA drive, refer to manual or cover label for this. Again, do this only if the drive doesn't play ball with 3Gbps enabled.
