ADDING A SATA III SSD AT 6GBS TO MY DESKTOP COMPUTER

HP Recommended

I have an HP Pavilion Elite built in May 2008 model number KQ497AA - ABAm9340f with a

  • Manufacturer's motherboard: Asus IPIBL-LB

Will this motherboard accept SATA III because I'm planning to add a Crucial 240gb SSD rated at 6gbs,  My current HDD is 750 gb running at SATA II, 3 gbs.

Terlat1234, welcome to the forum.

 

Yes, it appears that the drive will work in your computer.  Here is the recommended components on the Crucial Memory website using their Crucial Advisor tool.  One of their featured upgrades is a MX100 - 512 GB - SSD that is SATA III.  Since these drives are 2.5", it will be necessary to buy an adapter for it to fit into a 35" drive bay.

 

If you want more information you could contact their Customer Support.  They have always been very helpful when I contacted them.
