  1. Hello,

    When i compared my mainboard (A7N8X-X) with the Deluxe variance A7N8X Deluxe i noticed that on my board are also some places for SATA pins next to the BIOS batterie (left side, blue jumper) and 2 places for the 2 SATA connector (black) ... you can compare the two board with the pictures ...

    Can I solder some pins on my board, so that i could have Serial ATA ???
    Does my chip (nForce 2 400) support SATA?

    No. The A7N8X-X does not have the Silicon Image SATA IC on the PCB of the motherboard. Without that it doesn't matter if there was a SATA connector or not.

    You can, however, purchase a PCI SATA controller for around $20.
