EDIT: are there still problems with the LSI firmware or is it fixed now and I can keep the LSI FW?
are you sure your downloading the correct version (RAID_FRMW_WIN_R189337.EXE). I'm running W7x64 as well and the firmware updater works fine.

I solved the problem, I get the R189331 Firmware and it works yet.

I just put an unmodified PERC5i into an ASUS M4A88TD-EVO/USB3 motherboard (BIOS 1702), and all the expected system memory and drives are showing up fine. Currently initializing the arrays.

Has anyone experienced low read /write on 10k sas drives?

I'm getting roughly 80MB / drive reads. a raid 0 with 2 drives is sitting at around 145MB average using HD tune pro.

-
I've flashed the card over to LSI, using all LSI drivers/software. I haven't taped the pins as i haven't seen any of the issues related to pins (or so i assume)

I'll test with a regular SATA on the card later tonight, but 10k SAS shouldn't be getting 80MB reads...

Any help would be appreciated.

what drives are they? 80MB isn't bad if they're a few generations old.

Remember 10k drives have 2.5" (sometimes 1.8") platters which slows down the sequential speeds they can hit considerably.

Post a few benchmarks.

Hi,

I´ve just iniciated adding a new drive to a volume in my 3 drive raid 5, but MSM is telling me it´s gonna take 72hours ...

Is this normal ? i´ve set the rebuild rate to 80% and the server isn´t doing anything else ...

I'm actually thinking of doing this just dont know if I should. I have an extra hard drive and was planning of adding it to my raid 5 arrray (4 drives total). I'm holding back because I wanted to keep it just in case on of the drives takes a $hit. Any suggestions.

unknowndevice, I have read about taking that long.

depending on the size and speed of the member disks, this number doesn't look that out of the ordinary. My reconstructions from 4x2TB to 8x2TB have taken 48-72 hours at 80% reconstruction rate.

And here is another thing
My post about LSI and IBM firmware:
[...]
2) LSI and IBM firmware 7.0.1-0075 - are EXACTLY the same!
[...]


So ... people using IBM rebranded cards also should have problems with partitions bigger than 4GB ...
So...

I don’t get it,
Should I downgrade to dell if I have raid 5 with 8x1.5TB?
Will I have file corruption?
