SA-P400 NCQ Support

I have a SA-P400 with hardware Rev B / firmware 4.12. However ADU shows "SATA NCQ Supported: FALSE". Do I need a later hardware rev to get NCQ work? What rev do I need?

Re: SA-P400 NCQ Support

It maybe a case that the SATA drives being used in your setup are not NCQ compatible.

Take a look at the link below which says
"For NCQ to be enabled, it must be supported and turned on in the controller and in the hard drive itself."

The supported HP SATA hard drives which are NCQ compatible could be found at

Re: SA-P400 NCQ Support

I am  forced searching for the same answers,  the controller says my drives  support it and is enables on them,  but it disables them for my raid ,  How do i force it to enable on the controller itself?
