I'd like to set up a machine with 10 or 12 discs, but SATA controllers which supports that amount of drives are hard to get for a "reasonable" price. However, I've recently learned about port multipliers, and that certain SATA controllers with, say, 2 ports can support more than the actual number of ports.
However, how do I connect 10 drives to a SATA controller with only 2 ports? Which cable to I use for this? For instance, the HighPoint RocketRAID 620 supports up to 10 drives but has only 2 SATA ports...how do I physically connect 10 drives to this controller?
