Q10080902- I have a ARC-1231ML, and I am writing to ask for your recommendations regarding its use. Is it possible to use this card in conjunction with an external 12 bay chassis? I am hoping to mount the 12 RAID drives outside of the host PC chassis.

It is possible and there have some customers have similar usage already. There have some adapter boards which can convert these internal SATA port to external port. One possible external connection problem is signal quality. Since the convert internal port to external port needs some adapter cables and boards, the signal quality may be not reliable similar as common internal connection. In this case, you may need to downgrade the SATA mode to SATA150 for better noise against. Downgraded the SATA mode will be not degraded the performance because SATA150 is already fast enough for a single hard drive.
