PERC 5/i RAID Card: Tips and Benchmarks - Page 469

post #4681 of 7150
I just bought a perc 5i with an empty RAM slot. I'm guessing this is the model that can do raid 5 with the BBWC. does anyone know if the memory part below will work in it?

that's faster than needed, but the most important factor is how many components the DIMM is made of. only x8 and x16 components work due to the memory controller in the IOP333 processor.

TU005 (this one is a lil more common)
WX072

theres truckloads of them.. they are part numbers or something.. is there any that are preferred? any to avoid?
Yea they are just part numbers. To my knowledge, they are all the exact same card with only variances in firmware and the server that they went into. Some have a special plastic bracket for use in the 28/2950's, but it's still the same card otherwise.

that's hard to say judging from the fact that the supplier might send any piece. i bought one anyway since it was rather cheap than to debate and spend time on researching it

will update the thread once i get it.

then most likely, you threw away some cash just now... most DIMMs are built with higher density chips. you'll likely get x4 components. if you're lucky you might get x8, but unless you specifically order them, you won't get x16.

Ok, finally got the time and money and a good case with awesome airflow (230mm side intake fan blowing right on the card) and installed a LSI 8480E.

Trouble is, it isn't working. There are no drivers for Windows 7 on the website, and I am stuck on Win 7 for right now. When the system booted up a system message stated it had installed drivers for the new hardware and stated it was ready to use.

However, on boot up the message states no drives detected on the card, and if I hit Ctrl + h to enter the utility, the system just skips right to startup. I can't find a manual for this thing, are their jumpers I have to switch?

The LSI 8480E has external SAS connectors, and not the same as the Perc, the only cable I could find to convert from the SAS to SATA II is about 50' long, it goes from a single SAS to four SATA II connectors.

ah-ha, cool thank!

oh! its u! umm.. why no answer in FS thread?

Can somebody clarify for me if all Perc 5I cards are RAID and if all of them support the additional RAM? I have seen some pictures where the card doesn't seem to have a RAM slot and sometimes they claim NON-RAID.

Thoughts? Thanks!

For PERC 5/I, if you don't see a RAM slot, it is not a PERC 5/I. Sometimes people mistaken the HBA card known as the SAS 5/I as the PERC 5/I. the SAS 5/I is just a controller, no raid, and hence no cache. The PERC 5/I usually comes with 256MB of cache, and people have successfully upgraded to 512MB (myself included). Theoretically, according to the documentation of the IOP333 chip (which houses the memory controller), it can support 1GB of cache, but I haven't seen this confirmed. Also, it is hard to find 1GB DIMM in x8 or x16 components.

The PERC 6/I on the other hand doesn't have a RAM slot because its cache is built-in.

For example this:

I don't think this is a PERC, it's probably a SAS as you mentioned?

Thanks!
