    RAID Controller SROMBSASMR Connection to SAS Drives


      I have the RAID Controller and just bought two Cheetah 15K.7 SAS 6-Gb/s 600-GB Hard Drives.
      These drives are 6-Gb/s, but the RAID controller is 3-Gb/s so I guess that I won't get the
      full speed out of them, but I can work with that. Or is there a newer Integrated controller
      for the S5500WB Board that supports 6Gb/s SAS 2.0?


      Also these Cheetah drives have a 29-Pin connector but the RAID Controller uses standard SAS/SATA 7-PIN connector.


      So my question is the following:


      Do I need a SAS 29-pin to SATA Power Adapter Cable like the following:?


      I have also seen the above with two 7-Pin connectors. Will that give me 6-Gb/s from the RAID SROMBSASMR if I connect them both to the RAID Controller

      I hope someone could give me an advice on which cable to choose.


      Best Regards
