Hey guys, looking at purchasing a hard drive array to expand my unRAID storage, but my HBAs are both SFF-8087 internal connectors.


Was wondering if anyone had any of the following (before I buy from China) so I could get it all set up:


2x SFF-8087 to SFF-8087 cable


2x SFF-8088 to SFF-8088 cable


PCI-bay dual SFF-8087 to SFF-8088 adapter card (like provided photo)




Image result for sff-8087 sff-8088 adapter

Close this, ended up getting a package deal with a 16 bay array, internal/external HBA and SFF-8088 cable.
