HBA cards vs PCI-E to SATA 3.0 Expansion Cards

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys,

In this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FAy9N1vX76o Linus is using 2 hba cards.

I come across with this LTT video pretty recently. Because I've decided a while ago to build a NAS, I've thought to expand the number of SATA ports on my mother board, to use 2 x PCI-E to SATA3.0 Expansion Card Adapter (PCE8SAT-M01 8-Port PCI-E to SATA3.0 Expansion Card Adapter 6Gps PCI-E16X for Win).

Now my question is: In a NAS, should we use SATA3.0 expansionn cards or HBA cards? Why should is choose one over the other. 

In what way the NAS effectiveness it will change?


Thanks in advance!

Are there any speed differences in reads/writes if you choose to go with a HBA card vs SATA expansion card?

It will be great if the LTT team will consider to make a video about this.
