    Default Asrock Core 100HT-BD HTPC - eSATA port

    Hi,

    Can anyone tell me if the eSATA port on the back of Asrock Core 100HT-BD HTPC supports port multiplying?

    I'm currently looking to purchase a 4-Bay Hotway Enclosure that has an eSATA port which can plug into the back of my HTPC.

    4-BAY ENCLOSURE

    It does have USB3 but would prefer eSATA as there no USB3 ports at the back of the HTPC unit.

    Apparently certain eSATA MB controllers would only detect 1 HDD in the Hotway 4 Bay enclosure as they don't support port multiplying.

    Thanks,

    Schotty

    Dear schotty,

    Core 100HT's chipset is Mobile Intel® HM55 Express chipset.
    Intel HM55 chipset doesn't support port multiplier.

    Thanks!

    Have a nice day

    Thanks for the reply Emily..

    That's disappointing.. As an alternative, can I use USB2.0? Will the chipset support USB port multiplier?

    Thanks Again,

    Schotty
