[WTB] PCI-e JBOD SATA expansion card that supports S.M.A.R.T

February 19, 2013 4:10:08 AM

Long story short, i am expanding my server storage and need a PCIe SATA card that supports Port Multipler of 8 HDDs minimum with F.I.S switching and passes S.M.A.R.T data. So far i have tried cards with the Sil3132, Si3124 ,and JMB36X chipsets and they do not pass S.M.A.R.T to my WHSv1 box although the Sil chipsets supports port multiplet with 8 HDDs with F.I.S switching and the the Jmicron only supports 5 drives on Port multiplier.

If any one is selling such a card or know of such a card please reach out to me.

Must handle at lease 8 harddrives on portmultipler with SMART.
