Okay so your sata controller is rated at 150. You want to run a 3.0Ghz sata drive rated at 300/150mb/s correct? When you put the drive in just put the jumper on the setting to run at 150mb/s. I'm pretty sure there backward compatable just like using a usb2.0 device in a usb1.0 port. It just won't run at the higher settings because there not supported.

Sata3.0GB/s will run at SATA1.5GB/s speeds, SATA3.0GB/s is backwards compatible.
