From the look of your picture it looks like you already have a card in the PCI Express x 1 socket.

i do that just a random motherboard that i have :)

i need to add 4 of these in one of the systems i'm building but the motherboard i got has only 3 PCI express 1x socket so i need to buy a different mother board or find the card with 8 or 6 sata connections for not to much money.

cause if i can keep this cheap enough i will have to build much more :)

I'd forget all about the way you want to do it and concentrate on getting a new board with proper sata connections already on it.

no board has 25 sata connections :)

trying to build a system with 24 hotswap drives and 1 OS drive in it using an 24 hotswap case

EDIT:

i might just drop it down to 16 so it will work with this mobo and the 4 sata 3 controller cards

It's probably foolish of me to enquire about why you want to do this but I'll ask anyway.
