there's also a JSATA port if you're into that kind of thing
No, I've never heard of "JSATA".

Are you sure you don't mean eSATA? That what I thought, and then Google asked me the same thing, when I searched for it. The only hits I got all seemed like they could be typos.

Jsata at one point referred to sata ports with their own dedicated controller, not the main board one. But I don't know what can be done with them that normal sata can't do.

EDIT: Yea, controlled by a JMicron controller. Still know nothing other than that.

I can't help but think this might make a good entry level game system, by putting an i5-9400F and 16 GB RAM, an m.2 drive and an HDD. add a 300/350/400w psu, and you're good to go

If you look at the pic in post #3, it shows the "JSATA" port as having a jumper-style header. I don't know if that's the only difference, but it actually doesn't seem to have enough pins.

In this thread, there's a different-looking port that's labeled JSATA, though it has way too many pins (the SATA SSD I'm looking at has only 7):

And I've found a thread where the JSATA appears as a normal SATA port. https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/848740/Re:_Attaching_SATA_Drives_-_du

Here they mention that JSATA is the name of the Sata II 3.0 gb/s spec, but I can't find anywhere that has ever used it to refer to the spec.

JSATA connectors are indeed a proprietary connector used by JMicron for daisy-chaining HDDs/SDDs as well as implementing RAID arrays, which also explains why there's only one single other SATA port on the motherboard and why this board is targeting the network security sector. JMicron's series of controllers are what PLX chips are to PCIE but for SATA. It can split a single JSATA connection into multiple SATA connections or devices. In order to keep production cost down and for better end-user customization, rather than putting the JMicron controller on-board, they leave it to the client to choose how they like to implement it.
