    I take it there are components in the way of the excess portion of the controllers connector?

    If you don't use the second PCIe-16x then you can use this:

    Here are others, some cheaper, some more expensive than the one you linked to:

    Re: help please wrong sata controller

    you picked PCI-X

    you need PCI or PCI-e x1 if you have the little pcie slot on your board.

    PCI-X is for server boards usually.

    A lot of PCI-X cards have PCI electrical fallback support. Not always though. By far the biggest problem with using PCI-X cards in PCI slots is potential blockage after the PCI slots trailing edge.

    Re: help please wrong sata controller

    The specs of the card on Overclockers does state PCI 32bit compatability
