Tags: NAS / RAID SAS Gigabyte Storage Last response: January 4, 2013 9:16 AM in Storage Share neyerke January 3, 2013 9:18:50 AM Hi all, This is my first post here. (after reading a lot of topics/articles) Situation: I'm planning to setup a small multipurpose nas box for home storage convenience. I've ordered a mini-itx case, mobo and cpu and was planning to go for SATA drives. Gigabyte GA-Z77N-WiFi Socket 1155 (Intel Z77 Express chipset) Intel i3-3220T 3rd Gen 2.8 Ghz One week ago i've received 2x Seagate Constellation ES 2TB SAS (ST32000444SS). I've been searching for the right low cost sas controller since then. I found this one: LSI MegaRAID SAS 9240-4i SGL 4-Port 6Gbps SATA+SAS PCI-E 2.0 It supports the drives, but not the mobo (http://www.lsi.com/downloads/Public/RAID%20Controllers/...) Does anyone here has some experience with the Sas controller or mobo? Or perhaps some advice? Any help is very appreciated!

As long as the motherboard has a compliant PCIe 2.0 slot (or 1.0 as it is backwards compatible) you will be fine. I am running two of the 8i controllers on a ga-890fx board with no issue. neyerke January 4, 2013 9:16:19 AM Thanks for the advice. I'm going to give it a try. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
