Default SATA 300 in SATA 150 Mobo

will it work and just go at a slower speed?

or will it jst go boooom?

(I am putting a SATA 300 in a SATA 150 motherboard, I asked for it for xmas but forgot to look at motherboard spec, doh. And the reason I haven't tried yet is because the cables I ordered don't come till tomorrow, and I am too impatient :P)
