can't wait till next weekend

I will be posting benchmarks for 4-way RAID 0 on PERC5/i using four seagate 7200.10 drives

Is write-back cache enabled? The bench looks a little flat and jumpy? What's the performance of one drive?

Make sure to bench 4xRAID0 on your NVIDIA RAID first!
Once again...

lol i already did a while back, it sucks.... i get like 150 average read at best... its the same as what people get on 2 way RAID 0 on this chipset.. BLOWS

People using Intel ICH9R RAID 0 get better results with 3 drives than I do with NVIDIA's RAID 0 on 4 drives

But... Ill do it to emphasize how much nvidias boards would suck if they didn't have SLI as a force to reckon with

I can configure the array in the BIOS (640GB x 5, RAID5, no hot spare, 200GB bootable and the rest for data.)
I guess you can cut the cable from SuperMicro and rewire it. The cable from StarTech works fine when I connect directly to the drive or use it with SuperMicro drive cage.

I'm not quite sure the equivalent LSI card. According to this PDF file (http://www.dell.com/downloads/global...0255-Dixit.pdf), it is LSI 1078 ROC, RAID-On-a-Chip.

Let me know if there is any app to control. Dell OM won't load unless it is on a Dell PE box.

-l8r
According to this pdf, http://www.lsi.com/DistributionSyste.../mr_sas_ug.pdf

the following LSI cards are based on LSI 1078 ROC:

The MegaRAID 1078-based Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) RAID controller
family consists of the following controllers:
• MegaRAID SAS 8704ELP PCI Express Low-Profile Serial-Attached
SCSI/SATA II Disk Array Controller with Internal Connectors
• MegaRAID SAS 8708ELP PCI Express Low-Profile Serial-Attached
SCSI/SATA II Disk Array Controller with Internal Connectors
• MegaRAID SAS 8708EM2 PCI Express Serial-Attached SCSI/SATA
II Disk Array Controller with Internal Connectors
• MegaRAID SAS 8880EM2 PCI Express Serial-Attached SCSI/SATA
II Disk Array Controller with External Connectors
• MegaRAID SAS 8888ELP PCI Express Low-Profile Serial-Attached
SCSI/SATA II Disk Array Controller with External Connectors and
Internal Connectors

I guess I can use the sw from LSI to manage the PERC 6/i.

I think the closest match would be 8708EM2 or 8880EM2, since they are PCIe x8.
When (and if you decide to flash it, let us know.
I think I'd just buy the whole kit directly from dell with BBU.

No, the Battery I got was bad and would not charge, left it plugged in for a about a week, going to order one this week. When I receive the other SAS drive Ill force writeback and test it before adding it to the Raid 0 array.

There is a 5th cable coming off it though, almost looks like it's for plugging into a USB header but I'm sure that's not it. I suspect it's for a read/write light on a case or something. Haven't looked it up, haven't done anything with it, don't want to brek what's working, lol.
Hey have you figured out what that fifth cable is for? It might be for leds but it only has 6 wires and not 8, which would figure if it powered 4 leds.
