I have bought this one at newegg:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835114024

We will see if it moves enough air. It has two fans: inner fan blows air and can be adjusted to point anywhere, outer fan is an exhaust and speed adjustable. The outer one I plan to run at lowest setting.

For me, my mobo is pretty empty below the lower pcie x16 slot and I have two empty PCI slots below that. So, I should have enough space to move air around in that area. We will see!

You want a cable with 4x SFF-8482 connectors (goes to the drives) and 1x SFF-8484 connector (goes to the RAID card). They're not that cheap. The lowest priced one I've seen goes for $35 plus shipping.

I have an extra one I'll let go for $35 shipped to the US or Canada.

Back in the day, I would have an install of win2k on a seagate IDE drive (when SATA first appeared) as overclocking would corrupt installs through sata drives, but IDE was always dead stable.



I don't think your card is fault, mine had the same issues. Make sure your pin 5 & 6 are covered: my nail polish got bitten through and since then, I've been using electrical tape.

You won't be able to do anything with the code 10 until you fix it, likewise, you can not flash the card through windows without drivers being installed.

I believe what I did is let windows install the dell drivers first so its up and running. Then flashed to the lsi firmware, restarted, and installed the lsi drivers.

See if that works and get back to us, but I'm betting your pcie bus bit through your nail polish on the pins
Hi

I recived my card (perc 5ir) and it's ok.

no pin covered and no flash bios.

Raid0 with 2 hd SAS 146g 10000 rpm.

180mbs.

thanks

eVGA sent me an email asking me to rate my support services from when I called them regarding why my PERC controller won't work in my 780i FTW. I rated them as a 1, and left the following comment.

No help at all. I'm not alone on this issue. DuckieHo, and a couple other people on your forum have the exact same issue with the same piece of hardware in the same model board. I love the video cards I have, but I really wish this board would take my RAID controller in windows. It only works under linux, and the on-board RAID is the slowest RAID I've ever used, and has no support for hardware memory, or battery backup. No good, that's not RAID that's wana-be RAID. It took 4 BIOS versions for the 780i to support this controller, but your 'better' 780i FTW WONT! Maybe 780i *** would be a better choice of name, because I'm feeling f'ed on this one. I have a 12 1Tb drive array that I cannot use now, and the on-board SATA controller IS NOT EVEN HOT-SWAPPABLE!!! SATA technology going by the white papers on the technology should be hot-swappable. When I unplug a drive in my RAID5 array the system locks up, and then I'll reboot, and with the system running I'll plug in a new drive, and it won't even detect until a reboot. THAT'S NOT HOT-SWAPPABLE, that's no better then IDE! Oh, I've had ICH6, ICH7, ICH8, and ICH9r boards, and they're all 100% hot-swappable! (Go Intel for reading the white papers before creating a fake product)

Also, as I mentioned: Looking in Everest, the "physical devices" section says:
Bus 2, Device 14, Function 0: Dell Perc 5/i integrated controller
The "PCI devices" section has the same device string, and lists the Device ID as 1028-0015 and Subsystem id as 1028-1F03.
I'm going to reply to my own reply here. I've found a mostly recent *dell* device driver that is recognized by winxp, and installs. I've hacked it a tiny bit to change in the LSI version of the driver. Hopefully this will help out someone else.

This card (by the way) came in one of those horizontal "module" type metal & blue plastic holders from dell. I wonder if that "type" card tends to insist on being a Dell card, and the type that come in a regular PCI holder dont? I'd be curious to know others experiences on this.

another thing i just discovered: even though LSI's docs don't specifically say it is supported, looks like this newer version of Megaraid Storage Manager works with the Perc5 as well.

here's the link:
