Dear forum members,
I've recently bought a new SANDISK Ultra II 240GB Sata 6gb disc, but after I ran a hardware info utility, it says that is connected only to 3gb (SATA II) mode.
Is my Thinkcentre m71e equipped with SATA III or not?

Download the Hardware Maintenance manual for your specific model and model number. Look for the system board connector page to answer your question about the SATA ports.
Update: I looked up the specs for your system. It uses the Intel H61 chipset, which has 4 Sata II ports. Sorry.
A low-profile PCIe x1, 2 port Sata III card may work, but there are many caveats, the biggest being whether it will be recognized by the BIOS, especially for the Boot disk.
