I guess my question is rather simple, but I'm not familiar with those kind of integrated chipset CPU as the Celeron J3710.
On the ark website it says under I/O specification that the total number of supported SATA ports is 5.
Now if I was to extend the total number of ports by a PCI express card with its own SATA controller, could the system then support more than 5 SATA ports in total?
I'm not sure if I really understand this "total number of SATA ports" specification,....
Thanks in advance,
The computer chipset can handle up to 5 SATA ports. If you get a PCI express card you will be using the SATA controller of the external card.
Then, to answer your question, the computer, in fact,will be using more than 5 SATA ports.
