    Question What SAS HBA for an ASUS Sabertooth Z87 LGA1150?

    I am trying to add a SAS HBA to my ASUS Sabertooth system. No need for disks, just a simple 6Gb/s HBA to support an LTO-7 tape drive. Any recommendations as to what works and what doesn't?
    So far I have tried an Adaptec 78165 RAID controller set to HBA mode. It seems to work somehow as the BIOS extension shows up during boot (that's how got into the card's setup to set it to HBA mode, but the card never shows under W10 Pro's device manager, so I am wondering if there is another card that has been proven to work with this motherboard under W10 to save some time getting the tape working.
    The ASUS board has an UEFI bios and runs in compatibility mode, supporting UEFI and legacy BIOS extensions.

    LSI cards, particularly ones re-badged as IBM M1015 are cheap, popular and reliable.
    I don't know if these are compatible with your tape drive, you'll have to check first
