    Its because we tested with a 3Gbps drive, its mainly just a test to check they work and aren't broken. Now we've got a reasonable 6Gbps drive in the form of the Crucial C300 we'll actually be able to test the raw speed of then in the future. We'd have done it before but while motherboards have had 6Gbps sockets, there hasn't been any decent 6Gbps drives to test them with.

    With a 3Gbps drive the 6Gbps sockets actually return slower speeds, as they are provided by a third party chip as opposed to integrated into the Southbridge.

    It will not look good in your Antec, 'had a chance to test the maximus II gene in an antec 300 and it just didn't look right. :)
