will this work:

this card:

only has one 8087 port, so this cable:

I think you will be choking your drive if you try to hang more than 4 off of it (even if it allows it)

I think its intended to be used with a SFF-8087 Internal Mini SAS to 4x SATA Cable

@OP

Yes, it will work. The expander acts like a switch (as opposed to a crappy port multiplier), so you shouldn't choke your controller card. Depends though. There's a thread concerning the HP expander here.

Going by the model number, the 9260-16i will control 16 drives. The OP's card + expander will support up to 32 drives (8 ports * 4 drives/port).

yes but the raid controller only has 4 sata ports, that use the 4 into 1 connector... that is all the bandwidth it has: 4x6gb/s.

Thus 8 vertex2's or 4 vertex3's will max it out, So unless you are spinning more than 16 mech. HDDs, it is better to get the 8i or the 16i.

Not only that, but wimcle is forgetting that it's for a server and as such will be accessed via GigE. (~100MB/sec). Even if the controller was bottlenecked with HDDs, you'd never notice.
