I need to buy a motherboard with 6 or above SATA ports. I am just upgrading my motherboard for connecting more hdd's. So will a motherboard having LGA 1156 socket support Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4Ghz or not or I need to buy a processor too ??

No. A Q6600 is an LGA775 processor, and will not fit an LGA1156 board. You will need to get a different processor for an 1156 board, or......


A) Find a 775 board with more SATA ports
B) Add a PCI / PCI-e SATA card (they typically add another 2 - 6 ports)

Throw out your old hard drives and replace your current ones with Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB's. Then you don't need more slots and your system will speed up.

Buying a SATA controller you get additional SATA ports on your system without changing mobo

Have you considered a NAS for your storage needs? Does all the storage need to be local?

@fells Well NAS is something very costly. I need to buy Server Rack like a Dell Power Vault or something like that only companies do that not individuals. I think you know that. Any cheap means of NAS can you suggest ??

I use a custom built NAS with old computer parts running unRAID.
