Need SATA-2 card recommendation RRS feed

  • General discussion

  •  

    My WHS is Max'd out with 6 500gb SATA2 drives and one 400gb IDE drive (System).  I need to add a couple of SATA2 drives eventually and need a recommendation for an internal PCI or PCI-X card to support at least two more SATA2 drives.  Thanks in advance!

  • I bought some cheap ones on Newegg when I built my server

    PCI 2x SATA 150 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816132012
    (Not SATA 300, but cheap)

    PCIe 2x SATA2 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816124007
    (I had one free PCIe 4x slot for this)

    Both worked fine for my system.

    I wish I had seen this, which is just what I needed, instead of this.  Mine works good too.

  • Just about any card with a Sil3232 or Sil3234 will work just fine with WHS.
