I am unclear what you are seeking.
I assume the PCN notification you are referring to is PCN http://QDMS.intel.com/dm/i.aspx/903C5D59-8AB0-44C8-98DA-ADB20FBF4849/PCN113775-03.pdf 113775-03 which announce this products "Last Product Discontinuance Shipment Date: Feb 15, 2016" Warranty and support coverage goes 3 years past this date.

thanks for the tip .
i got that in tech docs , only the image is not in details enough .
well i forgot to say that i have not bought a standard P4000 chassis but assemblied my workstation by purchasing boxed parts from local sales , and a lot of accessories are out of town there, and intel district sales serve big co.s only .
It is difficult to tell form the photo, but there are 2 types of cables that look almost identical.
- The first is design to go from the controller to 4 drives.
- The second is design to go from 4 mother board sata connectors to a back plane.
The ends on both ends are identical, but the wiring is reversed internally.
thks , this is an important tip , i'll see to it .
good news !
i ordered an oem miniSAS to SATA cable , it works , that's a relief .
and the other problem , i have added a big video card , its heat sink just sits over the mainboard internal video port so i simply give up the DIY thing and be very happy now .
