I am trying to put together a file server and trying to get as many SATA
ports as I can. I found a motherboard I like but it only has 6 SATA ports.
It also has PCI-Ex8 and PCI-Ex16 slots. I want to add a SATA card.
Supermicro makes an 8 port SATA card that is PCI-Ex4.
Can I use a PCI-Ex4 cards in a PCI-Ex8 or PCI-Ex16 slot? If so then I can
have 22 SATA drives in this box.
Easy, fast GUI development.
