According to the manual all the ports should be SATA3. Double check the BIOS for anything that would be SATA related. Then I would start with trying a different data cable on one of the drives.

The mechanical HDD won't change performance with SATA2 vs SATA3. The SSD should. Have you benchmarked to prove that you only get 250MB/s on the SSD ?

That may be your problem. I see more problems than anything from those"we get all your drivers" apps. Remove any drivers "Driver Booster" installed, then uninstall "Driver Booster." If you can't find the drivers, reinstall Windows without driver booster. If you need drivers, they are on the Asrock website.

That's a tough one. I mean, technically you want all the speed you can get. But on the other hand, a good SSD will use all available bandwidth of SATA 2, which is still pretty darn quick.

Look at it this way - SATA II can give you up to 300 MB/s transfer speed. Your test shows that the fastest your drive can go is 234 MB/s, so you aren't loosing anything by not having SATA III available.
