anyone can recommend a HBA or sata controller card for the SSD DC S3700 ?
I do not need raid.
For server 2012.
I want to be able to read S.M.A.R.T. info from the disk.
So I think I need a regular sata ahci controller card. Or is it possible to read SMART info on a raid controller ?
I prefer such a controller card from INTEL not to have issues.
( I tried before with an HP Dynamic Smart Array B120i but had some strange effects )
I see 56 boards and 120 systems listed under 'Compatible Products' at
but no standalone controllers.
What motherboard is it going into?
