Motherboard With 8 SATA ...Any ?


Recommended Posts



8 sata mobo usually designed for server application for optimal HDD storage with adequate raid controller + network attached access, n' they ain't cheap...

 

Conventional mATX boards have 6 sata + 1 IDE (not all models, must be specific) Not difficult to find though... A budget conscious solution can work ard it to achieve 8 sata support... Simply make use of the IDE port for additional 2 sata support... U'll need this converter...

I am not sure, but there used to be special cables with 2 connectors which could be used to daisy chain the drives. that way you only need 4 connectors but can connect 8 drives. or 2 connectors for 4 drives and remaining 2 for other devises.

can also buy sata cards that drop into the PCI-? slots - I have a 4 port was from chamoxa not expensive... others more exp support raids etc too see http://www.siliconimage.com/products/product.aspx?pid=28

 

then yr next problem is # of power connections for the drives and a power supply enough to support them too
