On-board SATA Controller Chipset

Jump to solution

I was getting ready to buy Intel Extreme DX79SR. I liked the board because of the number of SATA ports 8 total (4/6GB and 4/3GB). My goal is to build a NAS box. All good until I started reading the reviews and found out that 2 ports out of 8 are on a different Marvel Chipset and most software based NAS like Nexenta does not support Marvel. I am looking for software based NAS because it allows me to mix and match (SATA and SSD drives) in the same box. So the question is, can someone point me to a Desktop motherboard which has over 6 SATA connectors and that has Intel Chipset. Thanks in advance.
