MB manual talks about them as SFF-8639 and, knowing nothing about U.2, I kept referring to them as 8639 but I was told I am incorrect, that ports on MBs are 8643 while 8639 is drive side.
 
Could somebody, please, confirm ports on MB are indeed 8643?

so if I used something like this : https://www.newegg.ca/p/0ZK-04JY-00022?item=9SIAFK69V93402&source=region&nm_mc=knc-googleadwordscamkpl-pc&cm_mmc=knc-googleadwordscamkpl-pc-_-pla-fast+media+usa+seller-_-cables+-+scsi+%2f+sas+%2f+infiniband+cables-_-9SIAFK69V93402&gclid=Cj0KCQjwtZH7BRDzARIsAGjbK2bzswXVn310QJgRpFmhcSh0IIgaUegM_gPlSSo6q5HlSyEmMO7A5KcaAp4VEALw_wcB
 
could I connect 4 sata drives and they would be seen in windows ?
 
Would I see them in the intel RST ?

Would I be able to RAID them ?

Would I be able to RAID them with another 4 on the OTHER U.2 SFF 8643 ?

No. First mb port is NVMe (U.2), not SATA. Second, even if your drives and cable were of U.2 kind you still can't connect four drives to that port. That port can do single drive connection only.

Cable Matters Internal 12G U.2 Cable (Mini SAS HD to U.2, SFF-8643 to SFF-8639 Cable) with SATA Power  

that with thisICY DOCK (Tool-Less M.2 to U.2 Adapter) M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD to 2.5" U.2 (SFF-8639) SSD Converter - EZConvert MB705M2P-B

can add an extra  nvme to ur enviroment apart from the pci ex 16 cards

The DiLinKer branded cables are from the same OEM that makes Intel's Optane M.2 / Mini-SAS HD to U.2 cables. I'd pick those for the highest quality.
