PERC 5/i RAID Card: Tips and Benchmarks - Page 631

Yep. Your good. Try taping up onto the card more. so the tape goes from 5/6 onto the main pcb. You can also try updating the firmware to 5.2.2-0072 and see if that solves the compatibility issue. What is up with you camera though? That configuration screen is supposed to look blue/cyan, not green. biggrin.gif

How would I go about downgrading to that firmware? Could I pop the card into a Windows machine without messing with the array? I recently flashed to the latest LSI version using megacli when Linux was up and running.

As for the camera, it's actually my phone. I think the vga cable is worn out. When I had the ATI 128mb card in my previous setup, if I wiggled the cable the screen would go to normal black/white lettering. It's kind of hit or miss, so I just leave it since I can still read it. smile.gif

Yeah, I have one of the 5i battery cables that came with the card. Another on the way.

I wasn't aware of that log. I'll look into it and see about pulling that this evening. Thanks for the tip.

So I ordered the Perc5/i off eBay. What's the recommended method for cooling it?

Can I do something like this?

Jokes aside, as long as you have air going over it and aren't living in 29 Palms, you should be good. You could do something like you posted, or just get a passive heatsink and some thermal tape. Also, everything I suggest is what I've read on this thread. I haven't tried anything other than mounting a 92mm fan in front of it.

It does get hot though, so if you're going to keep the stock heatsink on, make sure there's some airflow over it.

Tried retaping, made sure it stayed on there. Same error. Tried reformatting and installing Ubuntu Server without UEFI as well. Tried with and without tape after the reformat.

I can't find anything that talks about the PCI-E bus configuration. This bios seems pretty limited. Any other suggestions?

Flash back to Dell F/W. Flash it with no HDD Attached. YOU WILL LOSE THE CONFIGURATION FLASHING FROM LSI TO DELL, but it will still be present on the HDDs. You just have to import the foreign configuration on the HDDs. Make sure you match the F/W with the card you have. An Adapter model firmware will NOT BACKFLASH an integrated F/W and vise versa. If your card came with a PCI Bracket from the factory, it is an adapter. If you had to add one, it is an integrated.

Honestly, the PERC Adapters were never designed for non-server/workstation chipsets. I think its because of the huge architecture difference with AMDs FM Series Chips.

This is the card I have. I got it off here recently. http://www.overclock.net/t/1325101/sold-dell-perc-5-i-raid-controller

As for flashing, I see on the Dell website (the link from page 1 of this thread) that there are Windows executables, floppy executables, and one for Redhat. I should be able to pop this into my Windows desktop and flash it back to the Dell firmware without the drives attached correct? I'm assuming that would be the easiest way as opposed to busting out a floppy or going the cli route. If the drives will import, I'm fine with that.

Just plug it in to your desktop. They should import fine if you flash it correctly. Try this version first. http://ftp.dell.com/SAS-RAID/DELL_PERC-5-I-ADAPTER_A06_R189433.EXE

Thanks for the help. I won't be able to test this out until Saturday afternoon. I hope this is the root cause of all this.
