You might just have bought a new fancy SAS controller for your data systems or maybe even bought a motherboard with it onboard, but you’ll also need some quality cables to connect these controllers with the drives. SilverStone released two new cables for the SFF-8643 Internal Mini SAS connector.
The first one is the CPS04 and it is basic SFF-8643 to SFF-8643 cable, but it is a high-quality cable. The 500mm long cable is made with heavy-duty connectors and a thick cable for stable connections and reliable throughput. The cable supports SAS 3.0 with 12Gbps per lane and the cable features four lanes. The CPS05 also comes with sideband connection feature for optimal backplane control.
The second new cable from SilverStone is the CPS05 and it only has one SFF-8643 connector, the other is populated with 7-pin SATA3 connectors for support with SATA-based drives. The thick shielded cables along with the heavy-duty connectors ensure stability and reliability. The CPS05 also features a sideband connection (SGPIO) and it is designed for always on and reliable operation with servers or workstations.
The recommended End User price (excl. VAT) is set to $24.97 USD for the CPS04 cable and $21.56 USD for the CPS05 cable. Both cables should be available now.
