-Configure the jumper block with a jumper as shown in Figure 3 below to limit the data transfer rate to 1.5 Gbits per second (and leave the drive connected to the SATA-equipped motherboard or host adapter that doesn’t
support autonegotiation) or
-Install a SATA host adapter that supports autonegotiation, set the drive jumper block to “3 Gbits per second
operation” (see Figure 3 below), and connect the drive to that adapter. This option has the benefit of not limiting the drive to a 1.5 Gbits/sec transfer rate.
My MB (ASRock Fatal1ty Z87 Killer) has 6 x SATA3 6.0Gb/s connectors. Will I be alright connecting this HDD to my MB? Do I need to worry about the SATA speed difference between the HDD and my MB? What about the jumper on the HDD, can I set it to the 3.0 Gb/s setting, or leave it on the 1.5 Gb/s setting?
