SATA options.

Can I ask if there is any benefit to using the onboard SATA ports vs a card?


So say this Supermicro MBD-X11SSH-F-B LGA1151 socket H C236 Micro ATX Motherboard



It has 8 onboard SATA, enough for me.


VS using an LSI HBA I have that would cover the same amount of drives.


I'm planning on running a NAS, Plex docker and virtualizing a Win 10 machine and mostly VM a Mac graphics setup passing though a card etc.


Hope that's enough to give an opinion.

Perfectly fine to use the onboard ports, Intel SATA controllers are one best and most reliable controllers.
