you mean using tape?? WTH would you do that for?

Update: Question: What tests should I run for my RAID setup to compare NVIDIA RAID versus the PERC5/i card?

I am trying to flash my RAID card now

do I need to have a drive connected to it in order for it to be flashed or even accessible?

It won't work in my 2nd PCIe slot, I think this is a motherboard problem as SLI only works if your cards are in Lane 1 and 3..

I get this error:
Failed to get ControllerId List.
Failed to get CpController object.

edit: im posting a new thread I need help quickly


well that was easy

Plugging in the BBU even after disabling the warning, seemed to fix everything, even with no drives installed

Just get PERC6i from Dell directly. It comes with everything (card with bracket for white-box cases, battery backup unit with cable, SAS/SATA cable with power injector to use in PowerEdge T605)

card($249.99): http:// accessories.us.dell.com/sna/products/Controllers/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&cs=04&sku=341-7212

cable($25.50): http:// accessories.us.dell.com/sna/products/System_Drives/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=bsd&cs=04&sku=A1275 035

Good Luck.

I took a PCI bracket off an old network card and mounted it to the perc5. It only has one screw holding the card to the bracket but it works great I'll get some pic's up when I get the water cooling on it

Ok, so I played around with it today this is what I get. Ok there is 6 cables going to a 10 pin plug. Looking at the plug there is one hold that is blocked.

P1 P2 P3 P4 P5
Blocked Gnd +3.2v +3.2v NC

P6 P7 P8 P9 P10
NC NC Gnd Gnd Gnd


I then plugged in a 3mm led positive in P3 then check with P2, P8, P9, P10 and repeated with P4 to P2, P8, P9, P10. The LED lighted but did blink. The only thing I can think it is used for good and error status. I was hoping for an activity led. I guess I need to get a couple of empty drive and see if any of the ports changed when a drives gets unplug or dies.

I also have this thing on my SAS SATA Adpater... it looks like the USB headers and Audio headers for exterior connections!!

And where can I plug my LED's into for HDD activity? Ive seen the past page of discussion but haven't the slightest clue what you guys are talking about !!

When my order from sidewinder gets here later this week I will be benching my NVIDIA RAID setup and PERC5/i RAID.. I can only hope it gets here soon!!
