    I currently am running a Samsung 830 SSD (SATA3) as my RST/Cache drive and a 1.5 TB Western Digital Black Edition Main Drive.

    This is my question... Does the RST/Cache drive take FULL advantage of the SATA III Speed (I do have the drive connected to my Intel SATA III Port on the motherboard). Or does the RST software/hardware not fully support SATA III yet?

    The reason I ask is because my board only has 2 x SATA III (Intel) and 4 x SATA II (Intel). If RST Cache drive is not taking full advantage then I want to move it to a SATA II port to make room for a New SSD :) (Instead on putting the new SSD on a SATA III marvell controller... ewwwwww....)

    Thanks for your time :)
