Solved Do I Need a SAS controller card for my LTO Drive?

Specs: Windows 10, x980/24GB
I just purchased an internal Quantum LTO 7 Drive. It says it comes with a 6Gb/s SAS (SFF8482). I'm wondering if I will be able to simply plug the drive directly into a SATA port using the SFF8482 or if I will have to buy some sort of SAS or special SATA controller. I am using an Asus Sabertooth x58 motherboard and have extra SATA ports available.

✔ Best Answer
If the tape drive says it uses SAS, you need to get a SAS controller. The good news is you can get a good SAS controller for the price of one or two LTO-7 tapes.
