SAS PCI-e controller 8 ports
i need a pci-e 8 port sata controller windows compatible..

Just a siple controller.
@ItalianMiner72 The IBM M1115 Controller is a solid choice, and you can pick up a refurbished one at newegg.com for cheap: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIACSJ57G0575&cm_re=pci-e_sas_hba--14G-000B-00067--Product
@ItalianMiner72 I use this: https://www.amazon.com/IO-Crest-Controller-Non-Raid-SI-PEX40064/dp/B00ESFEI2E
Its good for Mining, you can go for higher ones if budget allows.
@ItalianMiner72 SAS or SATA? Subject says SAS, body says SATA ?
but if i understend right SAS to SATA is the cable to split 1 SAS port to 4 SATA HDD.
something like this..
but in ultimate istance the controller is used for SATA hdd..
But there are a lot around!!!
i read good things about LSI...
but if there are cheapest alternative will be appreciated!!!
@ItalianMiner72 SAS controllers can manage both SAS and SATA drives, a SATA controller can only do SATA.
LSI is good, and the IBM I mentioned above uses an LSI chipset.
it seems good..
but newegg won't ship to EU...
any EU Alternative??
@ItalianMiner72 I don't know the EU alternatives to NewEgg sorry - As an alternative, you can get it shipped to me and I'll reship to you for the cost of postage.
