I'm currently looking for a viable upgrade option for my unRAID server. I'm running version 5.0 pro and have currently run out of SATA ports on my motherboard (6) listed below. I need a recommendation for an HBA to allow for a total of eight (8) additional hard drives (don't need to be in any specific RAID configuration) to be added.

I understand that a controller recommended here might not be viable with the software as there are still some existing version 5.0 issues.

My system is:
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68
Power Supply: OCZ-ZS550W
Processor: Intel Pentium G620 Sandy Bridge 2.6 Ghz
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws Series 4GB (2x2) DDR3 1600
I most likely will be adding 3TB green drives (larger in the future to increase the density of the server) if that helps.

If any other information is required, please let me know.
Thanks again for any help.

Edit: Lt.JD recommended:
LSI Internal SATA/SAS 9211-8i
