[THW] Highpoint Ultimate Acceleration Drive SSD7100: 4TB Of 960 Pro SSDs In RAID 0 - Page 6

Yes, and see jsutter71's post #21 above, on Page 3, quoting:

"I just downloaded the latest SSD7110 drivers and
after trying the same thing again I am pleased to report that
the SSD7110 drivers which enable the bootability functions work with the SSD7101.

Remember that Highpoint still states that the SSD7101 does not support this feature, and
that the only 2 drives it supports are the 960 evo and 960pro.

I blew that out of the water from the start by using my SM951's."

HighPoint also had this totally awesome version with 3 x M.2 and 4 x SFF-8643 ports (so 16 SATA ports!); that's pretty damn unique and kills two birds in one stone: http://www.highpoint-tech.com/USA_new/series-ssd7110-overview.htm

Good luck finding anyone who sales the SSD7110. I couldn't, so I emailed Highpoint which quoted me a price over $1000, and that it was in limited quantities. I responded by asking them why it was so much more expensive then the SSD7100. They never responded back after that.

That does seem too much for that card.

Seriously?? That's an awful markup.

If we scale the prices by number of ports, then ...

The SSD7110 looks like one RocketRAID 3740A + 3/4 of one SSD7101:

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816115217&Tpk=N82E16816115217

$400 x (3/4) = $300


https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816115206&Tpk=N82E16816115206

+ $400 = $700 (roughly)

And then I paid $90 for the Asus hyper card.

Got this in the mail today. It's prettier then the Highpoint. I'll install and share my experience at the first opportunity. I'm going to have to acquire a couple disks first.

What's the full story with that "VROC HW_KEY"?

From the drawings, it appears to require a
proprietary motherboard connector.

See Item 6 in that drawing (Item 5 is missing),
where it says:
"Locate the VROC_HW_KEY connector on your motherboard ...."

Is that correct?
