Re: lenovo z500

I have Z500 too and i bought a samsung 840pro ssd SATA III (put it in optical bay, not to use for OS, but for faster read of large mediafiles), but according to HWinfo64 my ssd is working at 3.0Gbps. How can I make it work at 6.0Gbps?

Ok, solved. Optical bay port doesn't allow for SATA3, so in order to have 6gbps I had to put it in place of the primary HD.
