    Yes, it applies to SATA-II and SATA-III Specification drives. (SSD or HDD)

    interesting... I may look into formatting my drive and change it to AHCI.
    the Corsair Force 3 are the first SSD drives I have ever used. So playing with SSD is all new to me.. lolz..

    Thanks for the info, Neil. Got me thinking and I just discovered that all 6 of my SATA III ports are running in IDE mode. Is the performance improvement from switching them to AHCI worth reformatting and reinstalling my OS/Apps now, or should I just wait a couple of months until I get an SSD and have to do all that work anyhow?

    Also, does it matter which port my devices are plugged into. Right now, my DVDRW is in port one and my HDD is in port three. When I get my SSD, I'm thinking it should go in one, the HDD in two and the DVDRW in three. Is that correct or does it really matter?

    I would probably wait till you get your SSD and do the job once!!
    I should get my SSD back from corsair in 2 days.. i will be redoing my Lan PC and using AHCI.

    I ordered the OCZ Agility 120 SSD yesterday on Amazon. $112 SHIPPED not a bad deal. Just under $1 per gig.
    Order the OCZ for my other rig.. now that I have tried SSD I am trying to change the 3 main rigs I use all the SSD drives...

    I have been bitten by the SSD bug.. lolz

    Wait and do it all at once, I would think.
    AHCI changes the ~type~ of communication between your SATA-II and SATA-III drives and your motherboard's controller. It takes advantage of features that are built into newer drives, enabling them. Most motherboards have more than one controller on them now. Ports are usually a different color. Read your manual and specs to see if one controller is faster than the other. Use the fast one for the SATA-III drives and the other for DVD drives and slower, older HDD's. You may need to make a driver disk for that other controller to use during windows installation. In a Win-7 install, it usually suffices to set the BIOS configuration for the controller to AHCI before you do the install.

    READ MORE about AHCI Here.
