I have an ASRock B550M Steel Legend right now that seems to have a few dead SATA headers, since I can't get my hot-swap to work on a few ports on my case. I swapped out the hot swap cage (SilverStone sent a replacement) so I'm fairly sure it is the SATA headers.

That aside -- any suggestions for an inexpensive motherboard that will have 6 headers for hot swap drives? I run a few VMs and Docker containers (Plex) with Unraid, nothing terribly fancy.

Appreciate the help!

Can't you RMA the board? If it is a B550, it should be pretty new still.
