Replacing SAS P410i with a LSI HBA type controller

I have a 16 x HDD Proliant DL380 G7 that I am upgrading.

So I need to provide direct I/O to my disks for ZFS and that seems not possible with P410i. The disks are only detectable as RAID Storage units and not otherwise, and I dont think making 16 RAID 0 drives is a solution, rather the contrary.

Below are images of the card, the backplane and the connectors to the motherboard.

So i would like to change it for this:

LSI 93008i 8 Port 12Gbs SAS Host Bus Adapter :

If someone can check what I need to do that, or perhaps suggest another HBA card for this?

The cables are different, the connections do not seem to be the same, what do i connect to the Motherboard and what goes to the backplane? It is a bit confusing as is.

So I realized what I thought was the SAS card is not. It is a SAS expander.

Do I need that with another, newer, card/chipset?
