Raid Card Help : Info


Recommended Posts

Hey guys wanted to find out if this card is compatible with xpenology

Dell : CN-0MX961-13740 Perc 5/I

http://www.overclock.net/t/359025/perc- ... benchmarks

 

also would like to find out how many drives this controller would support.

if anyone is running these cards please advise on how your install went and any issues.

 

I'm planning my latest build with 2x of these just want to get my facts straight.

Please advise.

 

Thanks again.

I've not used this card myself, but I think the included XPE LSI megaraid drivers will work with it. You will probably need to flash to LSI firmware and IT mode and should be able to connect 8* <3tb drives

Thanks. would you be able to provide more info on how to do this as I have not used a raid card before

 

1. how do I use the IT mode <--- this will figure out

2. What firmware would I have to flash to it if you could provide a link would be much appreciated. .. ? <--- well this is the main question..

 

Please see attached link to the pic of the card : https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9duGC ... sp=sharing

 

The chipset seem to be : LSISAS1068 BO

 

Thanks for the advice.

Works like a charm and it supports 3TB Hd the one your looking at doesn't

 

Problem is :

 

Price : US $35.00 Approximately ZAR 533.29 <--- which is fine

Shipping to south africa : $60.00 (approx. ZAR 914.22) <--- which is insane.

 

would rather try flash the ones i have.
