Does this card only work in PCI express slots, or is there a way I can get it to work in a regular PCI slot? I'm out of PCI express slots

I have installed my Perc 5i in my desktop/workstation.

My question(s) are related to the parameter setting of an optimal setup. I am using the Array for movie catalogues for streaming and some security (If one disk fail). There are many elements to consider; block size, different chaching alternatives, patrole and so on.

My priorities are:
1.High availability
2.Security
3.Performance (In my current setup I have over 200 MBps in READ on 256KB. Its more than enough)

Any good “guides” for a smart setup? It seem based on my priorities that ARA and WT is preferable!?

Here is the variables now:
Stripe size: 64KB
Write policy: Write Back
Read Policy: ARA
OI policy: Chached IO

Has anyone had success using this raid card with a P6T and use the intel raid at the sime time? Sorry the forum is so huge, it is a little tough to go through and read all the posts.

Thanks!

Ack that! Works without issues! Had two raptors in raid0 on ICH10 and 3 Seagates on Perc 5/i. No problems.

Confirmed... I have 4 x 1Tb Blacks on my ICH10R in a Raid0/Raid10 Matrix array... I would love to have them on a Perc, but I don't have a 2nd one at the moment. I get between 6ms & 6.7ms seek times for the Raid0 & 10.4 for the Raid0... you should get at least that (I suspect better) on the Perc.

Agreed with devsk, it works fine. I have 8 1TB blacks in RAID5 on the PERC and 5 seagate 750s on the ICH10R in RAID0

Great! Thanks for the info guys!

One more thing, how does this thing perform in comparison with an Areca 1220? I can get a great deal on the Areca, but this would still be cheaper by like $100.

Thanks
