Non-Raid SATA Card Tags: Hard Drives SATA Motherboards NAS / RAID Storage Last response: October 26, 2011 4:42 AM in Storage Share 2e151 October 24, 2011 11:46:25 AM Can anyone recommend a good non-raid SATA card? Just looking to add some internal SATA ports to my motherboard. Don't need top of the line, just a good dependable card that's not going to break the bank.

A Pci-express 1.0 1x, a 2.0 4x, a 8x...? Do you want Sata1500 ports? Sata3000? Sata6000? 2 ports, 4 ports, 12 ports...? What OS shall it have drivers for: W95, W98-Me, Nt4, W2k-Xp-2k3, V-7, 32b/64b...? Mac, Linux...? Do you want Ahci? Connect optical drives? Boot on it? Exceed 128GiB, 2TiB? -------- In case you want 4* Sata3000 on a 32b Pci with Ahci for W2k and later, the best ones have a SiI3124 chip. You can burn the Bios from Raid to non-raid at will; take the corresponding driver. For Win98-Me and a 32b Pci, then only Sata1500 without Ahci: SiI3114 chips. Same story with the Bios and drivers. To exploit the throughput of one recent disk, or several ones, a PciE slot would be better. ncc74656 a b G Storage October 26, 2011 4:42:42 AM i have a few of those 3124 chip cards lying around, they have always worked great for me in the past.
