    Dell H200 Bios Fault - Terminal?

    does anyone know if there's any real difference between the h200A and the int tape adapter cards? i have one of the latter and am hesitant to flash it to anything at the moment!

    dell h200 reporting as int tape adapter

    Hi, i purchased a h200 off ebay and it reports as 'int tape adapter'. is this the same as the standard dell 6gbpsSAS? is there any chance of bricking it if put the 'standard' Dell 6Gbps SAS HBA firmware IT firmware on it?

    connect pata drive to sata backplane

    so i was thinking of buying a real server with a real SAS/SATA backplane (i think it's a bunch of inverse 8482 connectors - ie a sata hard disk can connect directly to it). however, i have about 5x250GB PATA disks that i would like to use. i have these fiddly adapters that attach to the PATA...

    sun stk raid int / adaptec 5805 firmware flashing

    so the only firmware that i believe is officially supported by the card is at the intel website which seems to be at version 17757. http://ask.adaptec.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/17242/~/are-4tb-drives-supported-on-adaptec-controllers%3F claims that: so i would say 'no' for sun firmware...

    sun stk raid int / adaptec 5805 firmware flashing

    recommend jbod controller for 4tb drives

    great link cantalup :) googling around a little, i see that the Dell H310 also has the LSI SAS 2008 chipset. does anyone know it it can be flashed to IT mode for pass through? is pass through the same as Non-RAID? (which the h310 seems to support out of the box)

    recommend jbod controller for 4tb drives

    thanks for the tip cantalup: a quick look on ebay shows that it's about the same cost as the ibm m1015 :( are there any benefits (except for supply) of the h200 over the ibm? maybe i should rename the title: i found out that jbod is not that same as pass through (ie just present each...

    recommend jbod controller for 4tb drives

    thanks for the link: sounds a bit dodgy to me, i think i'd rather pay the extra on ebay and at least have some financial recourse. yeah, it's beginning to sink in now; shoulda bought the damn thing last year. the whole thai flood thing really slowed down hd price drops, otherwise i would have...

    recommend jbod controller for 4tb drives

    i'm not sure if i understand your question MrGuvernment: the 1068E is the chip set on the disk controller. i believe i should try to find one with a LSI 2008 chip set for the >2tb functionality - however, they're not cheap. i was wondering if there are other brands worth considering...

    recommend jbod controller for 4tb drives

    i just purchased a 4tb for 150USD :) problem is my current SAS1068E controller doesn't support >2tb drives... so i'm in the market for a 8 port sata controller board that will support my purchase. any recommendations? don't really care about performance as it's mostly cold storage and...

    Replace just the fan on my intel 775 processor

    thanks for the answers guys; i know i will have to upgrade my mainboard soon and was wondering if there a good and more importantly quiet 'generic' cpu fan cooler that is 'future proof'?

    sun stk raid int / adaptec 5805 firmware flashing
