I have bought this controller and i have made some tests with some SATA drives until now.
Two days ago i ordered 3 Seagate Savvio 15K ST936751SS from ebay.
Now i have to buy some cables for these SAS drives too. I have found some cables in ebay but all of them are using molex adapters for the power.
My problem is that i need to find some SAS cables that can take power from sata cable and not molex.
Can you help me to find such a cable ?
I have found this in ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NJ056-Cable-As...3%3A1|294%3A50
Does anyone know if i can use this cable to connect my 3 Savvio disks on the Perc 5/i controller?
Never actually seen another cable like that so it would seem to be your only option. All the SAS cables I have use standard 'molex-type' peripheral connectors.
