Hi guys how are you?

I have a doubt about hardware and i think tha you can help me.

My motheboard is an Asus P8H67, like this link:

How you can see it have 2 SATA 6gb/s connectors

My hard disck is a Seagate Barracuda Green 2T 6GB/s, like this link:

The hard disk is connected in a Sata 3gb/s connector. Can i turn it on the 6GB/s connector?

This would increase the performance?

Thks for all who could help

By all means connect a 6GB/s HDD to a 6GB/s header. you won't actually get that speed but will be better than 3GB/s header. At least it should. A 7500 RPM drive would be better in either case.
