Zalman NBF47
It comes with clips, and with a little geometry and ingenuinty you can use the stock mounting clips, and no need for epoxy. I'm waiting for a smaller heatsink for the ARM processor, which is why it isn't mounted, but I already tested it and it works/fits.

Warning: it is rather tall, so i think I'll have to use my second to bottom PCIE slot. Other than that, fit is perfect, and its Al, so its light weight (great for a small card with improper mounting)

I believed I looked at that and the arm spacing maybe to wide for the PERC. I know I can't get this Zalman NB heatsink to fit: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/38...html?tl=g40c16


I believe this HS will fit and it comes with loop-mounting: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/38...l=g40c16#blank
Once again...

I also picked up a microcool small chipset one for the ARM. The thing about the northpoles is that they are pretty heavy and pretty big, so if it isn't secure, its probably going to come right off. Oh yeah, and its $35 compared to the $10 of the blue zalman I showed.

I'm telling you, the blue zalman NBF47 is the winner: it fits perfectly and cools nice too. I have some extra 40mm just in case, but I don't think I'll be needing them (I have decent case flow so I reckon, I'm OK.



BTW, anyone done any experimenting with the Perc and x58 chipsets? I flashed mine and installed drivers, even had a sucessful array up and running on my P6T Deluxe, but its sporadic and doesn't work all the time, so I just now did the smbus pin trick and we'll see how that goes. Will report back

I don't think I have one on my card, but maybe that's where you can connect a sideband cable separately.


Is there any way to get smart monitor info off these drives? I know that there is a consistency check....I haven't tried that yet.

Gotta thank Bonz for the help in this thread earlier.

I have the setup running well and am pleased. RAID10.

I have some bizarre questions about setup though.

First of all, I have these cables:
http://www.microconnectors.com/F03-1617.htm

Now, the adapters for the drives are the ADP-4200s.

Am I supposed to use both ports and if so, how?

The dual port has me perplexed but regardless, I am still very pleased with how nice this card is to use and manage.

Thanks again Bonz!

No Problem

I do believe you would have to plug in both. But I'm unfamiliar with SAS drives and connectors. I bet Duckie could help out in this situation.

Best of luck!

I took a look at it. From what I can conclude yes, you have to use both ports. It seems like it just splits the signal across both and creates a nice dock for hot-swapping.

Noooo.... don't plug your floppy power in there, no telling what will happen, but my guess would be Kentucky fried card! That is indeed an I2C connector. I have my HDD LED connector on the two pins closest to the white SAS backplane connector, and my HDD light seems to be indicating when there is r/w activity going on (with the cache or VDs according to this 2cpu post: http://forums.2cpu.com/showthread.php?t=87226).

I can confirm that it is not nearly as bright as my other MB HDD light, just like in the linked post, but it does work.

All right here are pics of my cooling solution. It's a Thermaltake Spirit RAMsink and an Enzotech SB heatsink. I used some old enzotech low profile BGA copper RAMsinks for the center chip.
