Bought a SAS hdd instead of SATA: Can I use an adapter?

Hey there everyone,

I recently bought this Seagate 1TB SAS hard drive, mistakenly thinking it was a 1TB SATA drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148868

This is my motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131736&Tpk=asus%20sabertooth%20990fx

I was hoping I would be able to buy some sort of adapter cable to use the SAS drive without returning it. Do you guys know of any way I'd be able to use the drive without wasting $30 to RMA?

  1. SAS to SATA cables do not work unless you have a SAS controller on your motherboard; which yours doesn't have.
