          Hello naeembabakheil - The best advice I can provide you is to follow this link http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/highlights/dsktpboards/db-dh67cl?wapkw=desktop+board++dh67cl+product+support to Product Support for your new board.


          The SATA Section of the Product Guide and the Technical Product Specification will provide answers to your  questions regarding SATA ports.


          I also recommend a review of the BIOS update section. The latest BIOS for that board is 0156.

          You should ensure the 6GB memory from your old board is compatible with the new board and, with four DIMMS on your new board, you should should review the placement of the two memory sticks to get optimum performance. Regards. Peter

              Look at the specs for your hard drive and your optical equipment to determine if it is rated at SATA  6.0 Gb/sec or SATA 3.0 Gb/sec. If 6.0 Gb/sec connect to the internal blue SATA terminals. If 3.0 Gb/sec connect to the internal black SATA terminals. Since the blue terminal is compatible with speeds of 6.0Gb/sec AND lower, you could connect your 3.0 Gb/sec to either the blue or the black terminals. The red SATA terminals are for eSATA connections at speeds of 3.0 Gb/sec or less. Do not forget to check your memory to ensure it is compatible with your new board! Regards. Peter

                thanks for telling me that !!!

                now i know more my board...

                but how should i know that my DvD writer or Hrdisk work work as 3GB/s or 6GB/s.

                  I believe all are SATA 3.0Gb/sec. You can Google the specs or go directly to the manufacturers web site and check the specs. Regards. Peter

                    thanks mate but i have low budget thats y i have bouhjt old second hand Dvd writers which were not listed on there site but anyway than thanks so i thought then 6Gb/s is for Blue/Ray or new device hrdisk or dvd writers is it right....

                    i also have hrdisk old which work fine till core ix3 DH61 WW board but make trouble with this board like ... for first time when i put all rams and hrdisk my windows run very slowly and load in 5-10 minutes,... then i formaty my windows and rstart to see what happen , for second time when windows boots my pc is unable to loads drivers, i think i have plug SATA cable in black port , then i change the port to blue , then it work and loads...

                    so it make me confused that how and whioch port is stable wth my old devices .. and not face prblem like the first ti
