I think the only motherboards that you will find that have onboard SCSI controlers are server boards, which you won't want for a PC, personnel use: etc etc.

Its better to buy a motherboard without SCSI onboard and just add a PCI card.

Thanks Ste.

I just want to see the SCSI controller how does it look like ? what are the ID for it ? where is the position for it ?

How do we connect the cable to it ?

I want to see pictures for that.

Because at work I have got SCSI but I can not open it

Heres are examples of cards.

You can either connect up to 8 devices or 16 devices on the same cable, depending on what type of SCSI is. The ID is for each drive or controler. The SCSI host adapter must have the highest priority,the others devices must have their own unique ID.
The last device must be terminated.

Did you mean the cable that will be connected to onboard SCSI controlers ? Or the cable that will be connected to a SCSI PCI card connecter (because we have more that one connecter)? or both of them ?

What did you mean by controler here ?

Did you mean the onboard on?

Or a SCSI PSI card ?

Or each connecter on a SCSI PCI card,,,because may be we have more that one connecters on a single SCSI PCI card

The drive here is obvious, which you meant : HD, CD rom,Scanner,---etc

The cable connected to the PCI card. The host Adapter is considered a Device on the chain, must have its own ID.

you can have more than one conector on one card.

Their PCI cards not PSI.

Can we connect up to 8 devices or 16 devices on the same cable for onboard SCSI controlers which are on server boards ?

Narrow SCSI allows up to 8 Devices.

Wide SCSI allows up to 16 Devices.

So it depends which one the card is and what Drive specifications..

Read the first link I gave you.

Sory, may be you misunderstood me.

I meant, can I connect a cable to onboard SCSI controlers ?

i.e can I connoct more than one drive (device) to a cable which is connectd to SCSI onboard intreface,,,(I am not looking to how many devices will be connected to that cable).

The reason I asked this question , because in your previous reply you said :

((The cable connected to the PCI card)),,,,you have not mentioned the onboard interface,,,,I though it should be excluded.

I hope you get what I am looking for
