Looks like an effective little box, one question though, why did you buy a raid card for ZFS? Isn't that a software raid?

As noted, the card was flashed to IT mode, which means it can do pass through (or whatever the proper term is for giving each disk to the system). Having a card like this can increase overall throughput sometimes. Also, it could be that the supermicro board didn't have enough SATA ports for the 7 drives being used.

Why the "white label" hard drives? I know they're less money, but a 1 year warranty and a no-name drive makes me nervous. Are you storing stuff that's not important if it's lost? I noticed no optical drive listed, so i'm guess you're not backing up to disc media and obviously not tape either.

They're Seagate drives.... that's really all that needs to be said.

I do not understand why people support Seagate anymore. They are a joke. ALWAYS buy WD. Always.
post #3769 of 4324
These WL drives are most likely non-branded WD Red drives according to what I've read, not sure where you got Seagate from (I agree with your opinion of Seagate btw, just had one of their drives start failing on me the other day). I chose the WL drives pretty much because of the cost, and I gambled on most drives that fail probably failing within the first year. Time will tell if that was a smart choice or not. redface.gif Most of the stuff I have on this system is replaceable/re-downloadable, and everything important is backed up elsewhere anyway. And yes the RAID card is because there were not enough ports on the motherboard and this model was the recommended solution over on the FreeNAS forums (I need the SMART data for each drive to be accessible, which may not be the case with other types of SATA cards).

Looks like a Seagate logo in the picture?
