    SSD in older SATA (1.5) Mobo?

      On the newer 3.0gb/s HDDs you can set a jumper to force the drive into 1.5 mode to work with the older SATA standard.

       

      My question is: Can I use Intel's SSDs in an old mobo that only supports SATA 1.5? I've looked at pictures and there is no jumper on SSDs like there are on HDDs.

       

      I don't plan on using this setup too long, just need to get an SSD now and use it in an older system while I'm putting a higher end system together for the holidays.

       

      Thank you,
