Connecting SAS DRIVE TO Onboard LSI 2008 CONTROLLER

First time asking a question. I would like to know if I can connect SAS HDD to an LSI onboard controller with sata like connectors and how? What connectors to use?

Forward breakouts cable. Linked in the guides

You have two options, you could either use this cable with a SAS connector on the end, or this adapter with a regular SATA cable. Either one takes a standard SATA power connector. Or, if you’re connecting your motherboard to a SAS backplane, you will want a reverse breakout cable like this to connect the backplane to the 4 SATA connectors on your motherboard.

thanks for the suggestion.

I will check them out and decide.
