    How to Set Up a PCI Raid Controller Card:

    • Install the drivers that came with your RAID controller card. The drivers come on a CD packaged with the card
    • Shut down your computer and turn off the power supply. Disconnect every cable connected to the computer and then open the case. Open the computer by removing the screws around the outside edge of the rear panel, and then removing the side panel
    • Find an unused PCI slot on your motherboard. PCI slots are the long white rectangles. If the slot has a cover on it, remove it
    • Slide the card firmly into the slot, making sure that the metallic "teeth" on the card line up properly in the slot. Hold the card by the edges, and avoid touching any chips or components on the board
    • Close your computer's case, reconnect all the cables and boot up your computer. During startup you will be prompted with a key to press to enter RAID setup. The specific key will be different with different RAID controller cards and software. Press the designated key
    • Select the hard disks you want to use for the RAID, and which RAID configuration you want. The exact procedure will vary with your controller card and software, but each card offers essentially the same options, and at least RAID types 0 and 1. RAID 0 offers greater access speed, and RAID 1 protects your data by mirroring it across two drives. Select two identical hard drives to use for the RAID
    • Exit setup, and your computer will reboot automatically

    How to Install a PCI SATA Card:

    A PCI serial advanced technology attachment (SATA) card is a computer hardware device that allows a computer to connect a SATA hard drive through a standard PCI slot on the motherboard. PCI SATA cards, also commonly called SATA controllers, are a way to enable SATA hard drives to work on motherboards that do not have SATA ports built into the main board itself. The process of installing a SATA controller is similar to installing any other PCI device.

    • Instructions
    • Turn off the PC and unplug all cables.
    • Open the PC's case using a screwdriver. Standard cases can be opened by removing a few screws along the right side of the back of the case.
    • Locate an open PCI slot on your motherboard. The PCI slots are along the lower back corner of the case.
    • Use a screwdriver to remove the slot cover on the PCI slot. The slot cover is a small piece of metal that separates the inside of the case from the outside. A single screw should be accessible just inside the case; remove the screw to take off the slot cover.
    • Plug the PCI SATA card into the PCI slot. Align the card in the slot so that the connectors are square and then push the card in firmly. The metal part of the card at the back of the computer should align with the back of the computer where the slot cover used to be.
    • Screw the slot cover screw back in to secure the card in place.
    • Connect any SATA hard drive that you are planning to use to the SATA card using a SATA interface cable. If you don't have any SATA hard drives yet, skip this step.
    • Close your computer's case, plug the cords back in and turn it on.
    • Insert the driver CD that game with your SATA card and run the driver installer or setup process and restart the computer when setup is complete.

    How to Install a Serial ATA Controller Card in a Computer with PCI or PCI-X Slots:

    For many, hard drive storage is almost perpetually in short supply. People who own computers that employ a Serial ATA (SATA) bus with available PCI or PCI-X slots, however, are fortunate enough to have a variety of options that will allow them to increase their storage capacity exponentially.

    • Instructions
    • Select the type of SATA controller card that is needed. Depending on the particular model, SATA cards may only include ports to connect a certain number of internal drives, while others incorporate ports that allow for the addition of external SATA drives; a number of cards provide both. If, for example, you have unused, internal drive bays and would like to add one or more hard drives within your computer, a SATA card that offers internal ports would be ideal. Conversely, if you cannot install additional internal hard drives, selecting a card that offers ports for external storage would be the proper choice.
    • Disconnect the power and all other external connections from your computer. Be sure that you are wearing a grounding bracelet or strap to avoid emitting any electrostatic energy. Remove the cover from your computer; consult the documentation that is appropriate to your model.
    • Locate an unused PCI or PCI-X slot inside of your computer.
    • Hold your SATA card by its edges (be careful to avoid touching any of the electronics or gold "teeth"), align the strategically placed openings on the bottom of the card (the openings appear as if, in places, the gold "teeth" are missing) to those of the open slot. Guide the card into the open slot and press firmly until you feel a subtle "pop" as the card snaps into place.
    • If you intend to use additional internal storage, install your internal hard drive into an available drive bay and connect an unused power cable from your computer's power supply to the drive.
    • If you have selected an external storage option, connect the unit's AC power cable to a surge protector or other power source.
    • If you have selected an internal hard drive, connect one end of your eSATA cable to an available internal data port on your SATA controller card and the other to the rear of your hard drive.
    • If you have opted for an external solution, connect one end of your eSATA cable to the rear of your external hard drive. The other end will be inserted into the external portion of your SATA controller card, which will protrude from the back of your computer; it is best to perform this step, however, after you have replaced the cover of your computer.
    • Reattach the cover of your computer, and reconnect the power cable, along with any previously disconnected peripherals, to your system.
    • For people who have chosen an external hard drive, attach the remaining end of the eSATA cable to the exposed portion of your SATA controller card on the back of your computer.
    • Install any additional drivers or other software in order for your card and hard drive to be recognized and perform properly. Any necessary software should be included in the packaging of its respective hardware.

    • 1 x 4 Ports Internal SATA Serial PCI RAID Controller Card

just what I needed
00:00:00 05-24-2011
This card works great and expands the number of SATA drives that I can put into my PC. It was easy to install and works like a champ. Arrived quickly, packed well. Couldn't ask for more.

Works fine
00:00:00 05-05-2011
I installed this simply to have more SATA ports. Did not utilize the RAID functionality. Based on my usage, the card performs fine. Installed under Windows Server 2008 on a Quad-Core XEON Asus motherboard. Data throughput to drives is satisfactory with no hiccups under large transfers.

Great replacement for SATA headers on motherboard
00:00:00 04-22-2011
I bought this product not to expand SATA headers but to replace them. My mini-itx motherboard seemed to have fried SATA headers so I bought this pci card instead of buying a new motherboard which would cost me around $70. It worked great right out of the box with Windows Vista x86 and I guess it would work great with any version or edition of Windows (either x86 or x64). No problems with it, cheap and solid. Completely satisfied with my purchase.

Works as expected

This card had worked reliably for me for several months so far. Recognized with no drivers needed on my Ubuntu 10.04 system.

works fine
00:00:00 04-05-2011
Good price, great value--why get a card with anything less than four ports if you're going to install one anyway?--and works like a charm. Highly recommended. Note that the card also supports RAID functionality, but I'm not using it as I've already got a software RAID running via mdadm under Linux.

Works out of the box
00:00:00 03-18-2011
This is a great addition for anyone looking to add more SATA devices to their computer. I personally needed more ports to accommodate more hard drives in my newly-installed SATA backplane, and didn't want to use port multiplier technology due to concerns over bandwidth constraints.

excellent controller
00:00:00 03-08-2011
This is a great product for a great price. My new mobo only had 4 SATA2 connectors but, I needed more. This product easily installed, was immediately recognized by Windows 7 RC 64-bit and has proven to be an example of how far controllers such as this have come in the past several years. Anyone can install this card!
