SATA Speed Question:
I can't see to find documentation where the speed of the internal SATA port is - i.e. is it SATA I, SATAII or SATAIII
1) Is there a way to top the board powering up immediately on power application, and have it only start when you press a button connected at pins 1/2 on J2 ?
2) What is capacity, in 12V, that the board can safely handle between the power connector at J23 and the optional power header at J20 ?
I am looking to have an external brick power through J23, and then pick up from J20 to a 12v -> 12v+5v+3.3v convertor - so that I can power 4 hard internal "normal" hard drives at ~50W total.
I think I could probably "get away" with using the onboard 5v feed for SATA drives (J11) to supply 5v power to all 4 drives - but it's the 12V really.......
