SAS Drive on SATA Controller

Good day guys,

Mobo in question: ASUS MAXIMUS VIII HERO

https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/m...ERO_UM_WEB.pdf

How do I get SAS drives to work for the setup with the above board?

Can I use a external enclosure with SAS interface and connect the USB effectively using its bus with UASP(USB Attached SCSI Protocol)?

TIA!

You might be better off to installing a pci-e sas controller card on the motherboard and then connect the sas drive to the sas controller card.
