I hate to be pedantic, but your write performance is no better than it was before. You have changed the test, which makes the results look better, but your performance is unchanged. There is a considerable difference between the two...

You can pretty much ignore the burst speeds anyway.

Thanks. That's what I was looking for.

Does someone know what version of BIOS does not enforce Write through with no battery?
My battery will not charge and so stuck with wt even though wb is forced in the BIOS and LSI tools.
Thanks!!

when i was trying out LSI firmwares this is what i found.

v7.0.1-0066 - Every time i rebooted my system it would fail to be recognised in the POST. If i shutdown my system and then powered it back on the card would be detected.

v7.0.1-0056 - Same as above

v7.0.1-0051 - No problems with system reboots.

Well I suppose I'll have to buy a new battery cable and test out how to make a disconnect switch then, lol. I guess start with the black one and see how it goes. I have ~6.5TB of data that I just don't have the means to backup. Thanks for the response.

How can I create two seperate arrays of raid1 using this perc5i controller?
post #4768 of 7176
I've only had a chance to read about 1/10th of this thread but I also did some searching and didn't find much on the Perc 5/e or 6/e. Seems like not many people have them but I'm wondering if they could be a cheaper alternative if you're willing to be a bit unconventional with your setup.

There are new 5/e-s on ebay with battery for $99 or best offer. They obviously include the bracket so there's one less extra part to get. I've done some searching and there seem to be 8470 (the external port on the 5/e) to internal SATA cables but I haven't found any at a decent price yet. Another alternative is a short 8470-8470 cable that connects the 5/e to a PCI slot mounted 8470 to 4x internal SATA ports. Even if it would all add up to be the same as a good deal on a 5/i, you'd have the option of moving to an external enclosure at some point.

So, has anyone gone this route with a 5/e or 6/e?

Well I just got a Perc 5/i with bracket for $83.95 shipped so doubt I'll be testing my 5e idea. There do seem to be decently priced 8470 to 4x SATA cables on ebay though.

Now to find a decent battery, battery cable, and SATA cables.

Lucky dog, I just got mine for $109. However I think it comes with a BBU.... THis afternoon I'm going to fab a HS using a dremel and my old NB/MOSFET HS from my Maximus Formula.
