    Splitter cable? As in use one MB Sata port and connect two HDD's using this splitter/Y cable? That anyways does not exist. One MB Sata port equals one HDD.

    If I interpreted that right, you need an add-on Sata controller card. Either PCI or PCIe based.

    Your MB, 870 Extreme3, has 5 SATAIII ports/connectors.

    Are they all occupied by hard drives and or CD/DVD/BD drives? They are the white ports located along the lower right side of your MB.

    If all you have there installed that use these SATA ports is a single hard drive and maybe an optical drive, then you have 3 SATA ports still open and available. You wouldn't need a separate add-on controller is this is the case. Simply connect the 2tb HDD to one of the remaining ports.

    Please read and follow #1 in my Sig so that we can have a better understanding of what your system is comprised of.

    Online, NewEgg.

    Anything but one that uses a JMicron(JMB) controller, and maybe ASMedia if that's your experiences with them too.

    Highpoint has a Marvell based one there, model 620 IIRC, that uses Marvell, SATAIII, is PCIe x1, and I've read others saying it's decent.

    You might also look at the SATAII controllers too.

    My recommendation for a PCIe x1 SATAII controller with 2 ports would be the SYBA SD-SA2PEX-2IR PCI Express SATA II (3.0Gb/s) Controller Card. It's a Silicon Image SiL3132 based controller and has mature drivers available for most any OS out there. Other than getting the drivers installed, it comes down to whether your MB will accept it or not and that's common with most MB's. I don't predict a problem with this card in this instance.

    This Syba card worked fine for me, with the ASMedia chip:

    SYBA SY-PEX40039 Controller Card - Newegg.com

    Microcenter has them, if one is nearby.

    P.S. wardog, can't send you a PM...
