PERC 5/i RAID Card: Tips and Benchmarks - Page 425

post #4241 of 7150
When my BBU was completely discharged, it got enough to be recognized when I rebooted my computer less then 5 mins later.

Mine was #3 when I bought my 5/i from eBay. Got that same message, I returned the BBU and cable and got a replacement from the seller, which also did not work. I eventually got a 6/i, with BBU. Worked great. Tried the battery on the 5/i... did not work. Tried the 5/i battery on the 6/i, it powered up and was detected.

I eventually returned the entire 5/i card + BBU + cable for a refund.
I tried changing the cable and it was not detected so I think I can check that off the list.
The card came from EBay and was pulled from a newly installed system so I just pray that it is the BBU

Usually the Win XP flash tool works best for me, although I have used it on Win 7 without a hitch.
Yup just tried it on a friend's Win 7 box.. no go.. same error does not like my 'system configuration.'

Would it be possible to flash it through the LSI Storage Manager? I see there's an option in there to flash firmware.. should I try a LSI firmware (and if so, which one?) or will it take a Dell image? (doubt it)

I havent been able to flash from there but its worth a shot. It should take any ROM image regardless of manufacturer.

Hi DJZeratul
I'm browsing the Internet searching for a replacement BBU. 1 of the sellers wants me to provide the Part number for the Perc 6i BBU. Because my current BBU is not working, I don't have a clue what the partnumber should be. Can you please provide what the part number of your BBU is..?
This is mine non-working BBU:


I'm looking at these 3 options...does anyone here have experience with one of these shops and the BBU's that they are selling in conjuction with a Perc 6i..?

*EDIT* looking at these makes me wonder which (if any) of these should actually work with my Perc 6i..
many thanks

TYPE:NU209 should work fine with the 6/i, as well as TYPE9110.

The other 2 also should work, but they are made to fit onto the transportable battery backed RAM, so they have the lips to attach to the RAM module. However, I have never had any experience with the 5/e or 6/e BBUs on a 5/i or 6/i, so I wouldn't recommend it personally.

I know they are technically supposed to work. But so was communism, and look where that got the USSR. Haha.

Thanks man for sharing ..I'm LMAO in between the tears

The ones that are supposed to fit on ram and have the two lips on sides, also use different type of cable. This cable is connected on the transportable battery backed RAM module, not the card itself.
I've made the mistake once, so it's good for others to know.

I don't know if with the correct type of cable it works ok, but external appearance of the BBU with the lips gives no other reason apart the cable for not working well.

EDIT: Does anyone have Seagates 7200.12 on his 5i ?

BTW, of these 2 which one do you have and use..?
post #4250 of 7150
I have 2 6/i's one with each type. Both work interchangably without issue.

I have heard the NU209 has slightly newer cells so it may last longer, but haven't seen or experienced any proof to back this up. It may be subjective, or perhaps just the fact that the NU209's are more newly manufactured.
