Ok, First question will the Aurora R3 motherboard work in the Aurora R2?
2. If so is it a screw for screw wire for wire swap?
3.will my AW widows 7 disk work still ?
Any info would be helpfull....
1. It should, the case didn't change.
2. I don't know if anyone knows this for sure.
3. Yes, it should (because it will still be an Aurora, and R3 shipped with Win7-64 also).
A lot of work for just old Sandy-Bridge. Old CPU won't fit/work and I doubt memory also.
Are you sure you don't want to just install SATA-3 card in Aurora R2 PCIe slot?
What processor is currently in R2?
And yes, SATA-3 SSD on SATA-3 interface is about twice as fast as on just SATA-2 interface ... according to the benchmarks anyway.
Samsung 830 will do 514/401 on SATA-3 ... about half-that on SATA-2.
