More about 8200 sata ports work raid
  1. Those ports are only active when you turn on RAID mode.. They are off in SATA mode.
  2. ok thanks for the answer couldn't find that in the documentation anywhere . not the answer i was looking for but i will just have to go other ways to get more hard drives in there
