Sata controller board

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a sata controller. I've ran out of room on my motherboard internal ports. I am looking for something that also has external eSATA ports as I intend on adding an 8 bay hard drive enclosure down the road. Thanks!

Have a look through this thread (there are others if you search) too

There are variants of some of these with esata (will be harder to find and more expensive I expect)

 

Also, be careful about esata/port multiplier cards, XPE doesnt support port multiplier cards very well (usually only one or two ports work). When I have used an external chassis for drives, I've found it easier to get some thin long sata leads (eg startec) and bind them but connected to internal port card
