Just snagged a PERC 6/i off eBay for £100 - wasn't going to get one until I was ready to build my new workstation, but a £100 smash 'n' grab was too good an opportunity to miss. Just need a PCI bracket and a BBU. biggrin.gif

I searched this thread via Google, but couldn't find what I was looking for, so I have a couple of questions:

1) has anyone tried one of these on the H55 chipset? (See sig. rig) Would be nice to know I can at least test this thing when it arrives...

2) Can the PERC 6/i work successfully in a x4-lane (electrical) PCIe slot or does it need a minimum of 8 PCIe lanes? I've heard that some cards do not function with a reduced number of lanes. EDIT: Question answered in post #4299.

3) How do you guys mount the BBU in a normal case? Obviously in a Dell server there's a mount point for it, but what do you do otherwise? Zip ties? tongue.gif

Thanks. smile.gif

The Perc 6/i seems to work fine on the server I just built in x4 slot. BBU can be mounted easily on the back of the case by the pci slot holes with a small dab of super glue (small dab = removable, big smear = permanent). As far as the chipset... no idea, but it worked fine on the intel server chipset in the computer I just built.

Mine is just cable tied to the expansion card support beam in my rackmount case, but the back of the case or an unused PCI bracket would work just as well.

Be careful with this method - if you damage the casing of a LIon battery then you can end up with a very hot and difficult to put out fire on your hands.

And if you use a small enough dab of glue so that you ensure you can't damage the battery, how do you know you have added enough glue to stop the BBU falling loose on its own, with the potential to damage you board, expansion cards etc as it swings around?

Anyone have any experience / stories to share about PERCs and hotswap backplanes?

1. No i haven't i have it running on a P35 chipset with the pins covered. No problems.
2. YES it just had a theoretical maximum bandwidth of 2gb/s, as opposed to 4gb/s
3. i have mine in my Lian Li V2100. at this time i have the BBU attached to the top of my sound card with some putty adhesive. its a sticky putty that you pack onto a surface and it stays there. I'm actually thinking of rewiring the cable to make it longer so that i can attach it someplace else, don't like how it looks bitting on the black enclosure of my Creative X-Fi

The PERC 5 and PERC 6 cards are PCIe 1.1 devices - they have a max bandwidth of 2GB/s in an x8 slot, dropping to 1GB/s in an x4 slot.

Unless you're using multiple SSDs you won't notice the difference, and even then the real-world differences are minimal.

Say what you want about my super glue method but it worked very well.

O43Yf.jpg

The jacket/sleeve on the battery whether PVC, PVDF, PTFE, CPVC, or CPE should not be integral in the structure of the battery and even so should not be negatively degraded by cyanoacrylate (super glue).

But thats my thoughts... and no fires thus far. smile.gif But if ya like zipties go for zipties.

You mean like one of these:

If so then it works great. If you mean one of the Norco 12->24 bay super jobs... then I have no idea personally.... but I have seen others that run a couple of perc cards to them with good luck.

Avs Forum - thideras has a sweet setup.
