My HDD is a WD5000AAKX, the Shop keeper told me that it is 6gb/s meaning SATA III right ?

How would I know if its working at SATA 3 6.0gb/s?

My system:

  • Intel Corei7 920
  • Gigabyte X58A UD7
  • AMD Radeon 5830
  • Adata HM750 750W 12 (60A)

First off, per your motherboard specs the HD will need to be plugged into either GSATA3_6, or GSATA3_7

Once it is plugged into the correct SATA port you should be able to check in the BIOS as to whatspeed the drive is connected at to confirm/set it to 6Gb/s
