    Some RAM I've found that works in an Areca 1883ix card, that is affordable in used condition:
    • Hynix PC3-14900R 4GB 1Rx8 DDR3 Server Memory HMT451R7AFR8C-RD - $8 on eBay
    • Micron MT18JSF1G72AZ-1G9E2ZE PC3-14900E DDR3 1866 8GB ECC 2RX8 - $30 on eBay

    Blah... I unplugged my arc-1170 while shuffling things around in the case. And now my machine refuses to post with it attached. Web interface doesn't appear to be coming up either.

    I'm now extremely frustrated, but might as well check. Do the various areca cards use the same on-disk layouts? If I buy something (much) newer will there be any issue just using the current arrays?

    I've upgraded throughout the years without issue, but from 1680->1880->1882->1883

    I have an 1883i, 1883ix-12 i'm looking to sell, pm me if interested.

    I upgraded from a 1220 to 1883 and my old array was detected fine, still worked although performance had odd speed spikes. I can't rule out that I did something wrong, but I remade the array on the new controller and all has been fine since then so the disks weren't to blame. So you should be fine, but if you do notice some oddities don't be surprised.
