The mobo I am using has four on board sata connectors and two ide controllers.
I am using the ides for a dvd and one hdd. I have three other hdds I want to use.
given all of that seems like using one of these convertors is a good idea. Lets me not take up a pci slot while not having to order new hdds.
Is there any performance or stability downsides to using one of these sata to ide convertors?
