Dear all,

reading the Dell-Precision-T5600-Spec-Sheet.pdf I wonder why the two 6Gb/s SATA ports are

described as "reserved for optical drive(s)".

Currently I use Optiplex 990 systems (with 2 SATA 6Gb/s ports) with OCZ Vertex3 SSDs, one

for the Windows7 system one for data and really get light-speed booting time and data transfer.

I hoped that with the new Precision generation I could get similar speed on workstation level.

My question: is it technically possible to use the 6Gb ports for HDDs and in particular for booting?

Best regards,


Ralf
