      1. SATA Cables and Connection : is it the same on SATA III and on SATA II ? or if i get sata 3 hdd i need a special cables? if its same then why the speed is different? or its just a chip on mother board that supports it....

       

      2. in bios for sata what should i choose ide or ahci? i have and SSD sata 3 disks as well as HDD sata 2 and sata 3 disks

       

      3. Disk Format related question : Allocation Unit Size ? and if its should be different for ssd and hdd and / or for system drive?

       

      4. as i am going to have 2 SSD disks i ve been thinking about an easy way to stick it into my Tower , i found this :
