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?
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.
Identify your board correctly,
Identify which ICH you have.
Check on the correct datasheet.
All the best,
