Hi there,

 

i wonder if it is possible to extend the SATA-Ports on my Mainboard with such a card:

i want to run 12 x 1TB Disks on my System and just have 6 SATA Ports on my Mainboard.

I guess that there will be some driver issues... is someone maybe doing the same i want to do and give me some advice?

 

Thanks a lot!

I have:

Everything runs without problems.

2x port SATA > motherboard + 3x port SATA >PCI. I use 4x2TB HDD, so I have one port free :smile:
