This is my new one, just finished bonding the heatsinks. The one on the right was leftover from my motherboard, I just dremelled it off.
well, I want to mount a waterblock.

for an 11W TDP chip?

Well, I've just installed a couple of seagate 300gb cheetah 15k.7 on my perc5/i but I have some problem, the performance is very poor.


( this is a single drive test )

Installing 15k.6 drives has no problem and drives performance is optimal.

What the hell is happening?????

what are your read ahead settings on the drive, and how do you have the cache options set?
post #4795 of 7276
Read policy: always read ahead
Disk cache policy: enabled
strip size: 128kb

hadn't realised it was an array - what are you HDTune settings? You need to have the block size larger than (number of drives) x (stripe size) or you won't test the max sequential speeds.

SMBus Issue with Intel Chipsets

The trick is just to physically disable the SMBus signal. It is composed of just two pins B5 (SMCLK, SMBus clock) and B6 (SMDAT, SMBus data). These two pins need to be covered by tape or nail polish. On the top side of the card, they are the 5th and 6th PCIe pins from the left. You can see the pins covered as seen below:
only cover the top of the pins and not the back?

Dammit, I've resorted to installing Red Hat Linux on a spare hard drive in order to try the Dell Linux flash script. I can't get it to flash in DOS with LSI or Dell FW, and the controller isn't even recognized in my sig rig.

I'll try it again in the sig rig and flash in Windows using the LSI tool, then Dell tool, but I'm not holding my breath.

Right now it's running the FW from 2005. I plugged my current RAID5 array from the newer FW controller and it didn't even recognize the array. It did recognize the physical disks though, so at least the controller is working.

I really don't think it's worth $18 TBH.

TBH, I don't think any of this additional cooling is necessary unless you have a really really hot box. IMHO, this is all just waste of money, but it is yours to waste I suppose... I think drilling holes in the PCI bracket to allow the hot air over the card to exit would be more useful and cheaper method of keeping the card cool.
