Why I even can't use 3 different storage once? Intel SATA chipset controller really make me crazy!!

1 additional SATA 6 Gb/s compatible port is needed.

The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports. When the M.2 slot is populated, two SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports are disabled.

The motherboard M.2 slot #2 shares bandwidth with a SATA 6.0 Gb/s port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA 6.0 Gb/s port is disabled.

The motherboard M.2 slot #3 shares bandwidth with SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports. When the M.2 slot is populated, two SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports are disabled.

The filter doesn't know what slots you are going to use so it flags as if all were used.

You would have 2xSata leftover unless the H100I is being plugged into the motherboard.

Did H100I have a SATA to motherboard now? I'm confused...

It's Sata powered I believe that is also how you are able to control the lighting.

Oh, that so.... I have no problem with 3 storage once, right?

You should be fine just don't plan on adding anything later on M.2.
