Need a good SATA 6GBps PCIe card

As the title says.

I have a sata 2 mobo and I'm looking for a fast sata 3 PCIe card that provides full sata 3 speed.

I just want:
AHCI support
Full SATA3 speed
Budget 100€/130$


It can have only 1 port for all I care, no RAID, ... .

Please post your experiences and suggestions.

  7. Hehe, thx. I think the cable I got with samsung ssd will do just fine.
  8. no you can not use it with that cind of raid controller!

    raid controllers using SFF-8087 which is you need to buy it!
    its a different kind of cable! :p

    look at it closely, and you will understand! :)
  9. Right :D:D. Thx for the second heads up!

    but there all seem to be slow wonder where i could find onne that will atleast let me take advantage of full speed on a corsair 3 gt 550read 525write without breaking the bank or buying a new board
  11. If you can find a review please post it here.
  12. winterlord! this HighPoint Rocket 620 uses PCI 2 1x which is up to 5gb/s

    the bandwidth is less than sata III (6gb/s)

    in raid 0 mode it will be like 2x 2,5Gb/s! wich is less than 2x sata II (3Gb/s) ! :)
  13. Just installed the HighPoint Rocket 620. The performance is good but the card causes my machine to hang at the end of the BIOS POST. I'm hearing that it has a conflict with the Intel ICH10 controller when the Intel controller is in RAID mode.

    I'm using it on an ASUS Maxmius IV Gene-Z and I can circumvent it by using the BIOS's boot menu (F8 key) to select the boot drive. I'm looking for a new card to replace it as this is really frustrating.
  14. check your firmware version and update it to latest firmware! :)

    here:

    please let me know if it fixed! :)
  15. and i have to say that HighPoint Rocket 620 is not true sata III its like marvell controllers uses 5gb/s or 500mb/s (PCI-Express 2.0 x1)

    I suggest you to RMA it if it's possible and buy a good raid controller if you can! ;)
  16. I agree with armand_h, get a real thing if you can.

    Is there another controller like the one you showed: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816115100

    Because in Europe it's 150€ which is a little expensive.
  17. yea i told him before about this chick! :D:D

    resonable price, good performance! is that not enough? :D
  18. Does it support AHCI?
  19. yes HighPoint RocketRAID 2720SGL supports AHCI!:)
