Default SATA hookup question

Okay I have the HAF X 942 Case and the ASUS P8P67 Deluxe MOBO

The case has a front panel e-SATA hook up.

The MOBO has two SATA6GB_E1/E2 and two SATA6GB_1/2.

NOTE: MOBO also has 4 SATA3GB hookups.

Right now I have my HD and DVD/CD drive hooked to the two SATA6GB_1/2 and the front panel e-SATA hooked to SATA6GB_E1.

Are these hooked up correct? I mean the whole system works and my computer is running fine but I have not used the e-SATA on the front panel yet.

SATA6GB ports are back compatible to SATA3GB drives. You will be fine. Whatever you connect to the eSATA will be fine.
