Need Drive and cable recommendation for controller card Tags: NAS / RAID Controller Cable Storage chad3724 December 22, 2012 8:21:43 PM http://www.amazon.com/Intel-SASUC8I-Raid-Controller/dp/... I have already bought this card. I plan on using it for a VMware ESXi 5 build. I've never built a PC before and I'm looking to setup a 4 drive raid 1 config. I want to buy the best possible drives and cables for this card. Any help is greatly appreciated. EDIT: I don't have to use all 8 ports correct?
