Yes, good of you to point out... I wasnt sure if iFresh was going with a 5/i or a 6/i

Hi guys, I asked a few pages back (this thread is insane!), does anyone know if a PERC 5/i card will work (with nail polish trick) on a Gigabyte P965-DS3?

It's on the list as being ok, but a poster called mgx had no luck... I'm scared of taking a punt and finding out it won't work
post #2133 of 7188
Since its intel chipset, it might work but only with the nail polish/tape mod. Honestly from the multitude of cards I have seen Duckie help troubleshoot or helped troubleshoot myself on this thread, most incompatibilities with motherboards beyond the tape mod have been solved by trying different BIOS versions and seeing which one works for you. Even if that means downgrading, which someone ended up trying and it worked.

Unfortunately there is not master compatibility lost for this card because Dell expects you to put it into a poweredge server... maybe this is something we could come up with and maintain as aficionados of this awesome card.

I understand your concern. If you tread into the realm of incompatibility without first seeing if someone else has been there before you, its a scary world. Full of wasted money and broken hearts. I hope it works out for you. If it does, we can add another board to the list of fully functioning and compatible boards that this card supports

you can add my mobo only tape mod flashed to 7.0.1-0066 by Windows MSM
ASUS P5Q-E

but I don't know how to check what PCI-E speed is - this card is in second PCI-E slot - should be 8x ...

If you have access to windows, Everest will show you exactly what speed the ports are operating at



EDIT I just realized something... Why does my controller think its a PCI-X Fusion SAS controller? Maybe this is why my speeds are so low? Also, disregard that last port saying its an x4, its actually running in x8 x8 mode rather than x16 x4 mode, bios change fixed that.

So im a little on the Confused side lets do it this way ill explain what i want to do with all these hard drives and ill try and do it without getting in trouble...

i download a lot and i would like to be able to have unlimited space to save things on there and not have to delete them...i hate external hard drives they make me mad so i want it to be all internal and easy to access... i really don't know the pros of having a hard drive with great speed the one in my sig rig seems to be fine to me just not big enough in size... i like to keep my things organized and im terrified that one of these hard drives should fail so i think im pretty much more about stability then speed looking for the best RAID to suite my needs

recap

stability over speed
least 2-3 tb
easy to access

i also think it would be alot simpler to buy a simple velociraptor 150gb to store the OS and the most important things that i need and have those where it is the safest...talk me out of it if its stupid haha thanks alot for all this help...links to your answers would be great im much easier understander when i see pictures

if this helps this is the board i want to purchase

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128362

it has 6 intel blue ports which i would put my hard drives into and 4 white ports to put me dvd drives.

The way I do things is. 1 drive for OS. 2 drives in RAID1 (Mirroring) for very important stuff. and x amount of drives in RAID5 (Striping with parity) for speed and redundancy.



Also, I just wanted to inform everybody that I flashed my card from LSI's firmware to Dell's latest firmware. I had the array backed up just in case.

I flashed and rebooted. I then went into the config utility and recreated the array WITHOUT initializing it. I then booted into windows and had all my data still. Just in case anyone is hesitant.

I plan on adding 3 more 1TB drives, and the whole "corruption over 4TB virtual disk" was scaring me. I have my array full and couldn't afford to lose it.

Just a quick question, wondering how the compatibility of hte Perc6/i seems to be with the P7N diamond. I want to run RAID5 eventually using Perc6 but will start off with RAID0... I was gonna use onboard RAID0 until I got the card, but MSI still has my stuff since tehy don't know how to test a board before sending it out -.-' POST, but no load due to bad board, etc.

Ideas?

possible to do all this without the RAID card i just want to be able to hook all these to the board and that's it

RAID1 and RAID0 will suffice onboard, but RAID5 performs terrible without a dedicated controller.

I would RAID1 super important stuff, and just run single drives then if I were you.
