I got excited about using an X2L board to update an old HP Microserver with a rubbish processor.
Has anyone tested this board with an m.2 SAS controller for use in a NAS / Tiny server application?
I’d love to be able to rip out the old mobo and add an m.2 SAS controller to an X2L and connect straight to the backplane and SATA drives in the HP microserver.
Looks like it might not work though as the m.2 controller I have found is M-Key and the slot/connector on the radxa X2L is E-Key.
Although delock seem to make adapters from a male Key E to a female Key M:
Or male Key E to PCIe x4
Does anyone think these options might work?
Also the UK distributor / Sales agent is https://arace.tech
Their domain was created in April 2023 and they are using a let’s encrypt certificate on their website. There are no customer reviews yet, it looks a bit like a scammers site. They do list a Hong Kong address.
Can you confirm that they are a legitimate and not scammers?
