Old (cheap!) mobos with 8+ SATA ports


Recommended Posts

Been kicking around an idea in my head :)


Are there any old (CHEAP is important) mobos that have 8+ SATA ports? Doesn't matter if they're spread across multiple controllers or only SATA 1.5Gb/S, being able to hook up a load of drives is the most important thing :)

I'm finding sata cards disproportionately expensive :( Cheapest 4-port PCI card I can find on Ebay UK is £12


Any age, any platform. Sata ports and price is the most important thing :)





I have my old DFI SLI-DR here, that has 8 and it's a good starting point. Hoping to find a couple of boards with a more consistent low price :)



At the mo, i'm even vaguely looking at SAS cards and 1-to-4-way cables.
