4 port SATA III board


Recommended Posts



I'm looking for a 4 port SATA III Board PCIe low profile for my mini itx motherboard. Can some tell me what chipsets are supported by nanoboot or gnoboot on XPENology build 5.0 ?


I found this board at a good price...

IO Crest SATA III 4 Port PCI-e 2.0 x1 Card with Low Profile Bracket (SI-PEX40064)

I had been using an Gigabyte E-350 + CPU "Zacate" and worked like a charm. Now I changed it to an ASRock Q1900-ITX for lower power usage and better performance as I wanted to use it with ESXi but ESXi cannot be installed on that MB.

I definitively recommend for a native hardware XPeno box the Q1900-ITX. Remember that a NAS should be as power efficient as possible but without affecting performance. The Q1900-ITX is using the Intel J1900 chipset with a quad-core Celeron clocked at 2GHz and with an amazing 10W TDP!
