Also I can check what drivers I am using but the latest on the supermicro is from 2/4/2019 11:30 AM. I am on 4.0.0.2020 and the latest driver is 4.0.0.2022
This is very likely my issue, I will perform a full system backup today and then install that driver.

Not sure which ones you were using before but the drivers I am using "4.0.0.2020" I have had installed for over 6 months now.

Much smaller form factor, much less power and the awesome DSM OS.

The DS1819+ is the new kid on the block, and of course there are drives bigger than 10TB now.

Cant run backblaze unless your a lottery winner with that config.

Unfortunately a major windows 10 OS update caused me nothing but problems on these cards so I replaced my cards with a LSI 9305-24i. It costs a good bit, but allows connecting far more drives on a single card which is nice for me since I dont have to take up 3 PCI-E slots with cards anymore. It also is faster than the other card and runs much cooler. This card has been performing like a champ for the past 2 months I have had it. Just wanted to let people know who are looking at this thread for hardware ideas on connecting a ton of drives.

Might be a pain to test, but if you have a spare drive you could remove your current OS drive and put the spare in. Do a new win10 install and then try to update the OS. If/when it crashes you could remove the card from the system including drivers for it, and then try the update again. If it works then the card most likely is the issue for you as well. Then you could put the old OS drive back in that way you havent messed anything up for it or have to both with reinstalling any software and such you have been using.


I was looking at replacing the cards with an LSI 9300-8i as it had the newer 12gb SAS connections and had newer drivers available. I realized though that the 9305-24i was cheaper than buying three of the lower end ones I would need to connect my the 22 drives I wanted to eventually use so I just went with the high end card.
