Windows 7: Is my HD in the right place and configured/being read correctly?

You'd have to saturate the SATA 3.0 bus to notice an improvement going to SATA 6.0 and I doubt if you would do that in normal operations very often. You'd need to be doing a lot of sustained read/writes.

You can certainly conceive of such a situation--I just am not sure how often it occurs for the typical home user.

You'd have to consider the speed, the possible flakiness of the add on card versus native ports, and the expense. You've already paid for the card, so it's not a factor any more.

Test it. You may see a benchmark difference, but what would you see in actual usage?

Personally--I'd avoid Marvel controllers generally if I had a choice, unless the 6.0 speed made a clearcut difference. I'd have to fill the 6 Intels before I went to a Marvel in ordinary circumstances.

At least you aren't in JMicron Hell. Been there. Not pleasant. I see you have a JMicron port. Good luck with it.
