I just got a Supermicro chasis: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816101241
That has a backplane that supports SAS and SATA drives but the backplane has SATA ports to be connected to the motherboard. I have a LSI Megaraid card (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816118129) that supports both SAS and SATA.
My question is can I take my SAS drive and hook it to the backplane, then use SATA breakout cables to connect to the LSI Megaraid card since the card is as SAS controller?
I wasn't sure if there were limitations on the cables themselves between SAS and SATA.
