    3 sata drives on NUC5i5MYBE?

    Fordarm

      Can I use 3 sata drived on NUC5i5MYBE with below accessaries?

      There is 1 SATA port on board and I found 2 kinds of SATA port extenders from AKASA as below.

      Can I use all those 2 kinds together with on board one so can connect 3 dirves same time?

          The answer is yes, but there are complications...

           

          • I do not believe that the Akasa High-Speed Custom Solutions SATA adapter can be attached to the MY board while the board is installed in the standard MY chassis. You may (also) have to purchase Akasa's chassis in order to make room for this adapter.

           

          • While there is a connector for providing power to the device plugged into the SATA III port on the MY board, there is none for the devices plugged into the Akasa M.2 SATA adapter or the Akasa High-Speed Custom Solutions SATA adapter. You will have to craft a way to provide these devices with power separately.

            Thans you for the answer.

            I am using MY board without chasis but with polycarbonate open case. So I think I can use this solution. ^^

             

            BTW, if I want to install 3 sata drives on MY board, I need to prepare seperate power source for SATA drives.

            I will try to find a solution. Thaks again.
