i’m looking for a reliable pcie 4x card to sata and i have no idea what to get.
i’m completely out of space and limited to 6x sata ports atm, hence the need.
i’m also limited to pcie 2.0, due to running an i5 2500k in this motherboard:
i have no idea, what good value is, or what would be reliable.
i know, that some cards can’t be used, because they are designed for server air flow and would overheat in a normal case.
and the idea would preferably be, that the card would also be pcie 3.0 compatible, if i ever use it in the future on another motherboard and raid functionality doesn’t matter, as the use in the future for this card would be for zfs, where if i get it right, i want direct access to the drive anyways.
it also needs to work in windows 7 and gnu + linux.
i thought maybe someone here knows, what would fit this application best, hence my asking and i’m worried of getting a garbage pcie card, that would throw in a bunch of corruption onto the drive or the like, we all know, there is a ton of garbage out there
so if u got any good suggestion please tell me.
