    I have a brilliant idea, but will it work?  :-D

      OK, don't laugh too hard at my idea! 

       

      OK, here is my current setup:

       

      DX58SO board

      6 SATA internal drives attached

       

      I need to add another SATA drive.

      Here is my idea and want to know if it will work before I purchase the necessary cable:

       

      I have two eSATA ports available.  I have a spare power connector.  I have a SATA drive (NOT eSATA) that I want to connect.

       

      If I purchase an eSATA to SATA cable, and connect my SATA to the eSATA port, will it work?

      Does the DX58SO support 6 internal SATA drives and an eSATA drive at the same time?
