SATA Contollers

Recommended Posts

HI All

 

What Makes / Brands can one use in an HP MicroServer Gen8 with DSM 5.0-4528 Update 2. I have a PCI-E SATA Contoller Card and want to add my 8 disks to DSM but it is not picking up. So i take it that the xpenology boot image does not have the drives.

 

Can someone please list the Makes / Brands.

 

Also is the Marvell SATA 6G Drives added at all.

 

Thanks.

Personally I'd go with an LSI controller. They are very common, and widely supported. Plus if you ever want to play with ESXI and have a cpu that does VTd, you can use direct IO.

 

On ebay you can find a really cheap OEM version that you really can't buy from a store LSI 9201-8I. I own one and use it in one of my systems; works great.

I'd agree that the LSI adapter is a better option for enhanced features.

 

I've used SIL3114 cards that work ok with xpenology and these can be had for £10 so can be great to build a 'cheap' 12 drive NAS
