Hi

I purchased an SAS hard drive by mistake. I meant to get a SATA drive.

Here is the drive product info:
HGST Ultrastar He10 8TB SAS 7200 rpm Hard Drive (256MB/4Kn) 0F27407 .

Is it possible to connect it and use it with the ASUS Prime Z370A motherboard?
If so, can someone please suggest a reliable adapter.

Thank You
 
Best recommendation is to return the drive. These drives are designed for reading and being in large server arrays more than writing for simple desktop I/O. Though if you are unable to return it you can try getting something like this to use it:

And if this doesn't work, which I don't see why it wouldn't, you would need to spend more money on a raid controller card that supports SAS connection. So expenses will pile up just to correct your mistake.
