Just bought a LSI SAS9201-16e, I realize it's external.
But my case has holes for cables so I can run the cables into the box to my SATA drives.

Will this cable work:
10Gbps 1M SATA 7 Pin to Mini SAS 4i 36P SFF-8087 Back Plane Cable SFF-8087

I've looked at lots of cables and they get a little confusing.. Just want to make sure they will work with this HBA card...

Or do I need something else..
I have 8 SATA drives now.. So two of these will work....

Well after further research.. It looks like the 9201 external needs a SFF-8088 cable..
These are a little more expensive, unless I can find some cheaper ones that work 4x per cable...

Card is only about $50.00

But the cables look to be about $25.00+ for x4 cables...
Although if I wait 3-4 weeks I can get some shipped in from china on ebay...

Hmm...
have to think more on this..

The link on your post is not working, but the name made me think is those would work to connect straight to the drives or only to the backplane.

Thanks, I corrected the link....

But not sure I can plug a SFP-8087 into that card.. Still doing some searching..

You'll need:
  • One SFF-8087 cable
  • One SFF-8088 cable
  • One SFF-8087/8088 adapter

Thanks...

I found this external card that will handle up to 16 drives for $50.00...

Its a nice card, price is right.. Just thought it was a good option if I decide to add more drives in the future..
And the internal card costs a lot more...
