Does the 9010 SFF support SATA III or only SATA II?

Sandy Bridge and Later have SATA3 ports for at least port 0 and 1.

The Q77 Express Chipset is what the 9010 has.  That means USB3 ports and SATA III 6.0 Gbps ports.

That also means using an SSD will make things better.

There are 3 ports near each other.Which one is SATA III?

3635

the spec sheet on your PC covers this (oops missing in the PDF wow) but,ntel® Q87 Express Chipset

,and the manual shows which slots are the fast one.
SFF.

3 jacks there blue black tan.

are not all 3 SATA -III,  why not bench mark them first to see If the are using SSD as  test medium./

the other page spec shows

SATA: 1.5 Gbps, 3.0 Gbps, and 6 Gbps

tell me its 6 and backwards compatible as expected that.

ive no clue why they colored them, maybe some can NOT boot a drive. IDK that.

It would take me a lot to unpplug and pug back sata cable each time.

Is there a other way to find out which color is SATA III?

Blue SATA 0 port (SATA III)
Black SATA 1 port (SATA III)
White SATA 2 port (SATA II)
