    Oh dear. In my excitement of buying an SSD Samsung 840 SATA III I accidently bought a SATA II optical bay caddy, will this cause problems? (it's still shipping so I don't know)
    Thank you!

    It will not cause any problems. A SATA to SATA optical bay adapter is just a physical adapter, not an electrical one. All it does is pass the wires along to the correct port. They don't touch the signals at all.
