I've read this topic: How exactly does a SAS SFF-8087 breakout cable work? + RAID/connection questions
Which basically explains that you can go from sata to SAS, but not vice versa.
However, from the store page of the Fantec SRC-2080x7 chassis I've seen a few reviews where people seem to use a breakout cable to connect the sata ports from the motherboard to the Mini SAS port (SFF-8087) on the backplane (where sata HDD's are connected).
Is there an exception to this backplane regarding this cable?
Because the SFF-8087 breakout cable doesn't seem to be working for me. Which would be consistent with the topic I linked above, though I'd be suprised if the people in the reviews haven't tested it before posting their review.
Note: The store page is in german and I've been translating everything to english by using Google Translate
This is the page of the chassis by the manufacturer, but also in german (even the english language at the top-right doesn't help).
EDIT: My backplane model is DH-6GMSAS-03A
