SATA controller D945GCL motherboard

I am adding a 1TB hard drive to my emachines w3609. It is a seagate barracuda. The installation manual is asking me if the motherboard sata controller is 1.5gb/sec or 3gb/sec(to determine if I should place the jumper or not). they list these controllers as being 1.5 ,VIA,VT8237,VT8237R,VT6420,VT6421L,SIS760,SIS964. Does anyone knowthe data speed of the sata controller of this board?

Hello,

Since i cannot find the board D945GCL, it is a bit difficult to give an exact answer.

However i can explain how to get the answer.

If your board is D945GCXXX,and have the ICH /Product.aspx?id=27679 Intel® 82801GB I/O Controller, so you can check on the ICH datasheet.

Example:

http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=27679 http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=27679

Page 44/848

Summarize:

Identify your board correctly,

Identify which ICH you have.

Check on the correct datasheet.

All the best,

Kind Regards,

 

Aryan.
