anyone know if that card comes with the battery?
Most likely, but look into getting one off ebay, it's $100 cheaper that way.

When you have drives in a RAID they will all be used.
Umm yes, I know what RAID 5 is.

What I was asking was whether a RAID 5 configuration spins constantly when there is no one accessing the array.

Thanks.

On pretty much all hardware RAID cards all the disks will spin all of the time, regardless of whether they are in an array or otherwise. They are designed for enterprise server use, where the disks will be in constant use, and powering them on & off repeatedly can lead to problems.

The Areca cards (and I think some of the 3Ware cards) can power down unused arrays, but they are much more expensive than you can buy the PERCs for. I don't think LSI (the OEM of the PERCs) have spin-down options on any of their cards. For low power you are limited to buying Green drives & only have arrays just big enough to store what you want, or by shutting your server down (either hibernate or S3) and waking it with Wake-On-LAN.

I did the trick with the covered pins and i turned it on again. No initializing message on my screen again.

Then i just unplug the memory from my controller and when i turned on my PC i got a message in my screen about memory controller bad or missing.

So i can guess that the controller is working but it is not fully recognized by my motherboard?

I have seen some guys using the same mobo with me in this thread and so i am asking is there something special that i have to do to use this controller with my Asus P6T deluxe motherboard?

P.S. I have tested this Perc5/I card with a cheap P5K-VM motherboard and it is working fine. So i can assume that there is no problem with the controller itself.

Any help is appreciated.
Ok i found what the problem was. My controller doesn't work with my new memory. When i put back the old 256MB chip everything is working and i was able to flash it with the latest LSI firmware so it can be able to take 512MB of RAM.

The problem is that my controller isn't compatible with my memory that is KVR667D2E5/512 from Kingston. Does anyone know to tell my what 512MB ram exactly to buy for this PERC 5/i controller?

My controller is using firmware 7.0.1-0066 from LSI if that helps you.

the memory controller in the IOP333 processor is very particular. it requires DDR2-400 PC2-3200 single rank ECC Registered DIMMs using x8 or x16 components. That means you'll have either 9 chips or 5 chips on the DIMM on a single side. Most DIMMs are made using cheaper x4 components. By the way, as far as I can tell, the firmware doesn't matter when it comes to the question of memory support, that's a function of the memory controller that is in the IOP333 processor.

The memory that i have got and it isn't working it has 9 chips on the DIMM on a single side but it runs at 667MHz and not 400MHz maybe this is the problem.

Remember, this is "Registered" memory, which means there is a EEPROM providing SPD to the memory controller. Your 667Mhz DIMM is providing the wrong parameters in the SPD to the memory controller.

The speed should not be an issue.

Your problem is that you are using an unbuffered DIMM. The PERC needs registered memory.

the_beast is correct in that you completely have the wrong type of memory; you need ECC Registered DIMMs at 400Mhz. I just looked up the Kingston part number, and that is totally the wrong part.

However, I do suspect different speed will be an issue as the SPD (registered ram) will have the incompatible memory timing parameters that the memory controller will not like.

Get *exactly* the type of memory that I mentioned above and it should work. *Exactly*... pay attention to the post.
