Card for QS 2002 to add SATA hard drives
« on: May 24, 2020, 09:42:01 AM »
Hey guys, recently aquired QS2002 with the sonnet CPU upgrade currently on deck, I'm looking to add some spare hard drives I have kicking about.  They are all SATA, so I am looking for a card to connect them to.  There are spare Molex connectors inside so I can power the HDDs off those (with converters), so it's just a hard drive controller card I'm looking for.

Honestly it's been a while since I've looked at this and I don't want to order a lemon!  Results from the usual suspects like Amazon and eBay give many varying reviews, is there a recommended card you guys would suggest?

Much appreciated in advance!

you need either one with 2 channels, or, if you buy two single channel converters, one of them two has to allow you choose between master/slave and cable select.

someone correct me if i am wrong. there was a thread here but i cant find it now.
