Hello i have an lsi sas3041e-hp sas raid card and two df146babue sas hdds with no cables. I have an asrock 960gm for it to go in to but the PCIe x16 is filled up by and graphics card and the smaller one is used up by a wireless card. All that is left is an PCI slot. I have everything else like CPU etc and the computer is running windows 8.
How can I get these to hdds to work in raid using the card. Then how can I create a space for it to fit in on my motherboard.

HP Raid cards have a BIOS built in. I think it is F2 to get into it. Just watch for the prompt on you screen just after post.

As for space on your motherboard you might need to get a riser card. Can you send a picture.

Obviously you can't just "create space" since this motherboard only has 2 pci-e slots.

You'll need a different motherboard or to remove one of the other 2 cards in the pci-e slots.

Ok ThankYou.
I have found a PCI to pcie thing so I could just put the Nic in that. And I could get a 1x to 4x so I can fit the raid in.
thanks
