    Replace 3 Gb/sec with 6 Gb/sec   (3 Answers)

    I am replacing a 1 TB 7200 rpm SATA 3G (3.0 Gb/sec). This is 6 Gb/sec, will I be able to swap them out easily or will it require additional bios tweaking?

      Answer

      yes, you may swap them, no problem Connections & cables are interchangeable. If your computer only "uses" data @ 3 Gps....thats the highest performance you will see.You don't want to go the other way though....putting a 3gb/s drive in a 6 Gb/s machine.

        this means no cables or mounting screws are included. Just the hard drive and nothing else.

            It would, but I would recommend a Black Series drive or an SSD if you can afford it. This Blue series drive is geared more for standard computers, so it won't have the high end performance you would want for gaming and other taxing type software.

            Depends on the cables you have and your ability to maneuver the new hd into place without disrupting other wires and components. This is a sata hd, so you'll want to double check that. You would need an install cd or flash drive to do a new install of windows, and then copy your old files from either a disk backup or just redownload them. Don't forget you'd also need to reinstall your drivers for your motherboard, video card and processing chipset, along with anything else.

              you will need a SATA 6 cable and screws unless extra came with the PC, also you must make sure the power supply of the PC has the necessary cable for another hard drive
