  1. Hi I recently bought a motherboard memory and processor bundle.

    I also bought a hard drive which has 15000 RPM. Only when I received it its not SATA or SCSI but SAS harddrive

    Supplied by Misco. Manufacturer is Fugitsu but Toshiba has now taken over that part of their business.

    Model MBA3300RC
    Can't post a link to the hard drive but google the model and it will come up.

    I have then gone to much trouble to source a cable which is a SATA to SAS.
    I then connected it to the mother board but the motherboard doesn't recognise it for love or money.

    I know the mother board is fine because I tested it with another hard drive.

    Do regular PC motherboards capable of supporting SAS hard drives?

    Its an ASROCK Motherboard Model H61M-S
