Subject explains, but I'll repeat:
I have SC5299-WS case (with S5000VSA4DIMM if that matters) with standart non-hotswap drive bay, I want to install AXX6DRV3G kit to be able to hot-swap HDDs.
As I understand from http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=48257 this page, if I want to install AXX6DRV3G, I also need to APPSHSDBKIT, web-site of my local store says I need APP3HSDBKIT.
Found /thread/9807 that post, but it refers AXX6DRV3GEXP, so I still confused what I need.
Can anyone help me with this?
Your board has got only sata ports, so you need to use a non-expander backplane. AXX6DRV3G only.
Refer to this post:
Let us know if you have any questions.

We'll buying SCSASRB card, so it doesn't matter, as I understand. Though we still buy non-expander bay, because, first, bays with with expander is out of stock anyway and second, we will buy additional hot-swap bays for 5.25'' and install 2 drives there, so for abilty to use all 8 channels we're forced to use DRV3G and 8087 to 4SATA cables.
Anyway, thanks for the answers, I've got the answer I needed.
