  1. The question that never seems to get answered anywhere is if you have a SAS RAID controller using a miniSAS connector going to a 12Gbps SAS backplane that uses SATA connectors and the typical MiniSAS to 4 x SATA cable, then populate the drive bays with 12Gbps SAS drives, will the controller see 12Gbps SAS, or will it see 6Gbps SATA? I'd imagine it'd see 12Gbps SAS - otherwise why would a manufacturer make a 12Gbps SAS backplane with SATA connectors at all? Anyone have any insight into how this works out?
