If you've run the iMac EFI Update 1.6, release you have 6 Gb/s Serial ATA 3.0 support and SATA3 should be detected by the drive and the processor. However I would contact iFixit Customer Support (This is not Customer Support but the VOLUNTEER DIY board) and verify that there is not a SATA 2 choke on that kit.
