Upgrading from SAS 6G to SAS 12G

Hey guys, here's a question. I have a server with an LSI 9260-8i controller that connects to a backplane that supports 8x2.5 inch drives in the front of the server via two SFF-8087 to SFF-8087 miniSAS cables. If I get an Adaptec 8885 controller and use two SFF-8643 miniSAS HD to SFF-8088 miniSAS cables, and use a 12G SAS SSD, will everything run at SAS III (12G)? Getting deep into it, the only SAS II piece is the backplane and all it does is route wires from the cable to the drives, there's no logic there at all. Thoughts?
