Thanks for all your kind words guys,

I work as a Systems engineer for a major global enterprise services company.

So the raid card arrived today, drives should be here tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest,

I have a remote battery kit coming as well, it was meant to come with the raid card but they didn't have it in stock.

I can still set it all up without the battery and screw it in later smile.gif

on to the pics!










Now for mounting options, The goal is to mount the card on the opposite side of the motherboard tray,

I have some adhesive pcb supports pictured a few posts up, however they are for 4mm/3.2mm thread holes.

There are two 3.2mm thread holes where the board is attached to the PCI slot cover however the thread holes on the rest of the card are 2-2.3mm.

I'd like to avoid drilling into the back of the motherboard tray, so I'm thinking a square peice of acrylic with plastic spacers or something similar.

I know a guy that could cut me some acrylic with threaded holes for a reasonable price.

I'll give him a call tomorrow and see what he says,

Otherwise I might get lucky and find some adhesive rubber that i can create threaded holes in.

I will keep you posted.

Btw If anyone's interested in the battery I have on order for the card here is a link. I've also ordered a remote battery kit so i can place it anywhere in the case and avoid heating up the raid card (default position is to mount the battery to the raid card itself.

PS. if someone has some ideas for mounting this I'd be very grateful smile.gif

edit : bah you think you could buy adhesive standoffs in 2.5mm, or adhesive mounts that can be screwed into, scoured the internet, looks like its going to have to be acrylic.

Update:

8 x Samsung 840 256gb Pro SSD's arrived at the parts supplier today and have been shipped to me using overnight express so they will be here tomorrow biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

LSI shipped my CacheVault LSICVM01. Which is effectively battery backup for 48hrs without the heat generated by a huge lithium battery. (using a bank of NVRAM)

I've also ordered a Fastpath license which increases SSD IOPS considerably.

Other than that I'm looking into acrylic mounting options to mount the LSI card/cache vault on the other side of the motherboard tray.

I've also started replacing the yellow wiring from some of the motherboard cables with black. I'll include some pics of the cables with the SSD pictures and updates tomorrow smile.gif

I look forward to reading your build when you do it smile.gif

So LSI sent me some multilane SAS break out cables today.

Basically a multilane SAS breakout cable splits the larger 37 pin connection on the raid card to 4 sata/sas cables.

You can pick up generic SAS breakaway cables for about $10 on ebay, but often they are not shielded correctly and some of the more cheaper ones don't use twin axial technology.

The problem is they sent me the 1metre ones, when i needed the 40cm ones.

So they have to be sent back... sigh




I've emailed a friend about building an acrylic PCB support for the card to attach to the back of the motherboard tray and should get a quote back in the next day or so.

Failing that I'll buy the tools i need and a 50cm x 50cm sheet and make my own biggrin.gif (which will be a new experience for me.

Samsung 840 pro SSD's are with the delivery courier according to tracking so should be here today smile.gif

Ill post more then smile.gif
