(4 stars) PC? HP z840? Use a different model card.

By: darionyc
I write this in hoping to save someone else the time I went through in figuring out the spec needed for my computer. The eSATA mechanical slot with a direct connect to the mother board would not support my Startech 4 Dock SATDOCK4U3E. The PEXESAT32 2 Port Dual Profile PCI Express eSATA 6Gbps Controller Adap is not supported by the HP z840 due to some architecture incompatibility. You will need to buy the PEXESATA2 2 Port PCI-E eSATA Card. which works fine and resolved all my connection and BSOD issues. Overall works fine and fast. I thank Startech support for finding the solution after a great deal of effort on both our parts. (HP support too.)
