So I'm using foxconn bloodrage motherboard, and it has 3 SATA ports.
They're named SATA 1-2, SATA 3-4, SATA 5-6, and you can see in the bios 6 different sata ports.
However, physically, there's only 3 SATA ports on the mobo.
Is there a way to use more than three sata devices on this mobo?
I'm a bit confused as to why the bios would show 6 SATA devices if there are only 3 ports.
I'm using 2 HDDs and a CD drive, and wanted to add on another HDD.
There's a SAS_SATA port (whatever that means) but when I tried using the HDD or cdrom through that port, the computer recognized the HDD as "SCSI" and didn't recognize the cdrom at all.
Wait, WHAT? Stacked sata ports?
I'm gonna have to take a closer look... need a flashlight.
Thanks for the answer!
As to SCSI, I think I just plugged it into the wrong port (it didnt work, and the cd drive didnt work on that port as well)
