My company is retiring its current server.  There is no real market for old severs and its not worth much.  However it does have two HP 15K SAS hard drives. Which would be nice to have.


Does anyone know the general feasibility of fitting SAS drives into a normal desk top.  I presume that you would need to install a SAS controller.  What sort of slot would this need.  How easy would it be to set it up.  Just wondering if it is worth pursuing.

Looks like pretty much all the controllers are PCI-Express

Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.
