Greetings,

 

I'm currently using an ALiveNF6G-VSTA motherboard and recently bought a Syba SI-PEX40064.

 

My question is, will the controller card be AHCI active in combination with my motherboard?

 

 

Thanks for your time.

Thanks for the response. I've read similar articles/threads and, as far as I've read, they all state to activate AHCI via the motherboard. My motherboard does not support AHCI but, the controller card supports AHCI. I guess my question boils down to whether AHCI is solely motherboard dependent or is the feature available via add on card such as the one I have. If it helps any, the chipset is based on the 88SE9215.

If the controller supports it than you should be good.
