    im sure this is gonna seem like a dumb question and ive been reading this site all day but im a bit unclear. i cant seem to figure my out if i need a sata controller with 3112 chipset or not-my motherboard is a asterope-GL8E. im also not clear if i can run the samsung d162c or do i need the d163A because im currently using sata on my pc.also kreon v 1.0 is out but i cant seem to find any sammys flashed with it. almost forgot, i have the hitachi 0059dj. any info would be much appretiated.

    The chipset on your mobo is ATI IXP450. It took 4 seconds to Google it. As for the Samsung, those 2 models have been replaced by the sh-d162d and the sh-d163b. And there is Kreon firmware available for them. You don't have to run the sata drive.

    Ya... I'm pretty sure you'll need a pci sata card.
