Adaptec Series 6E Unified Serial SATA/SAS RAID controllers deliver the robustness of hardware RAID and the Adaptec RAID Code, enterprise class management features, and full OS support -- including open source drivers for Linux and FreeBSD -- into the entry level RAID space. Delivering the same 6Gb/s performance of the Series 6 controllers, the Series 6E are optimized for the platform where a Series 6 controller would not fit in from a price, form factor or host connectivity standpoint.

Series 6E controllers support SATA and SAS devices, and have been qualified with the same systems, motherboards, backplanes and drives as Series 6 controller. They include the same drivers, BIOS and storage management tools as Series 6 controllers and do not require additional training or qualification. Series 6E controllers are thoroughly tested with entry-level storage devices for desktop use and entry-level server platform, workstation and motherboards most typically used for basic server, performance workstation and industrial PCs.

  • newegg I/O Connectivity and Data Protection With its entry-level price point, Adaptec 6805E can be used as a connectivity product, with support for up to 8 SATA and SAS devices, and 128MB of DDR2-800 MHz DRAM cache for device acceleration. At the same time, the Adaptec RAID Code (ARC) delivers maximum reliability with RAID levels 0, 1, 1E, 10 and JBOD. ARC also offers RAID Level Migration (the ability to easily migrate RAID levels), Online Capacity Expansion (expand capacity without powering down the server), and Copyback Hot Spare (when a failed drive has been replaced, data is automatically copied from the hot spare back to the restored drive).
  • newegg Hybrid RAID With Hybrid RAID 1 and 10 the Series 6E controllers offer maximum performance and reliability by combining Solid State Drives (SSDs) and Hard Disk Drives in a single array. By performing read operations from the fastest SSD and write operations on both the SSDs and HDDs it offers tremendous performance gains over standard HDD RAID arrays. By combining SSDs and HDDs it offers the benefits of both technologies and allows a better cost per GB ratio than comparable SSD only arrays.
  • newegg The Case for Cache The fastest way for a RAID controller to fulfill a read or write request is to serve data out of its cache. Savvy network administrator knows that enabling the RAID controller cache offers significant performance benefits, such as reduced latency in I/O request, bandwidth and queue depths that surpass software application limits, and on-the-fly parity calculations on sequential writes.
  • newegg Intelligent Power Management Intelligent Power Management (IPM) slashed power and cooling costs by up to 70% using intelligent I/O caching combined with disk drive power savings via standby and power-off modes.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: this card will run HOT, just make sure you have good airflow or to make you keep it cool, attached a 40 mm fan onto the heat sink. Make sure the fan is thin so that it will not conflict with adjacent slots.

Cons: run hot, vendor should have included fan as part of the package

5 out of 5 eggstemps for this card!

Pros: this is another pro. For those who have written reviews before for this card, I found the max operating temperature for this card. If you google "9805e temperatuires", you should get a result from a adaptec for temperature requirements for pretty much every series of pci-e raid card made by adaptec. These guys are meant to run like a Nvidia Fermi video card even without a fan. Their max temp is 100C or approx 230 F. That awfully freaking high for a consumer pc! It's not that I wouldn't get a cooling fan for it but I don't think it's needed. Maxview starts warning when the temps get around 85c.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: I don't own this card anymore as you can tell from my 2nd review.

5 out of 5 eggsupdate on my last review

Pros: see 1st review.

Cons: about the raid bios. It's UEFI friendly meaning it works with UEFI biosf for the motherboard/. One thing, you have to set your UEFI bios on your motherbostf to boot storage controller in legacy mode. If you try UEFI mode, the raid cards bios doesn't get loaded into either nvram or the motherboard bios itself.. And the raid card has a text bios, not a gui bios. And for those loving windows 8/8.1 fast booting, yes the card fast boot once the raid bios has been loaded. For the raid bios to load,it takes approx. 30 seconds.

Other Thoughts: if money permitted, I would upgrade my mb to a g1.sniper 5, add a 3rd video card, use the creative sound onboard and get a lsi 9371-4i card.

This is what I am using right now:

Intel Xeon E3-1245v3 3.4 ghz quad core (got it for $299 at xmas on the egg, now $355)
Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H mb
8gb of patriot viper 2 ram at 1866mhz
2x Zotac gtx 770 amp video cards
Antec HCG-850M psu
2x OCZ agility 3 ssd's in raid 0 (using marvell controller, intel controller on some 8 series mb's don't like sandforce ssd's)
sb recon 3d pci-e
pioneer bdr-208

5 out of 5 eggsnice little hardware raid card!

Pros: nice little hardware raid card. for those using snb, ivb or haswell, this is a nice on some motherboards. My brother and I have a pci-e 3.0 x8/x8 with a pci-e 2.0 3 times x1 with a x4 slot that disables the two x1 slots between the x16 3.0 slots. Even for those using a pci-e 3.0 x8,x4,x4 this is also nice. I am using a ga-z87x-ud3h and it works fine in terms of the driver. see cons about maxview manager software. Is a UEFI motherboard friendly card. see cons about the raid bios.

Cons: maxview storage manager is a bit poop when it comes to tweaking and cleaning your pc. One, you have to only install the driver for MEI, if you install the whole MEI suite, maxview storage manger (internet browser based) complains that the CIM server service is not running when trying to login into the manager. Even if you restart the CIM service, ,maxview still poops out. And if you are tweaker like me who wants to squeeze all of the speed out of your system, maxview may poop out on you again with a maxview server service not running. Again, you can restart the maxview server service and it still won't work. Had to chuck out the card because of this.

Other Thoughts: The card has 4 screw holes for a 40mm fan. Looking to repurchase the raid card in a couple of months and buy a noctua 40mm fan along with a rosewill thor v2 case. Why such a big case. Because with the fan installed, it makes the card a dual slot card technically (maybe 1 1/2 slots). Anyhow, you can't use this with fan in a atx case and motherboard because there is not enough space for a 40mm long x10mm wide fan.

5 out of 5 eggsHigh Performance Controller

Pros: Fast, 8 6G drives, Inclueds Cables

Cons: Does not include a fan but it needs one.

Other Thoughts: Rated 5 because of performance. I found Raid 1E to be much faster than a single disk so that's what i would recommend using.

Adaptec offers an optional fan kit. I had some 40mm fans so i used one of them. You don't need much airflow so any quiet 40m fan will be good. Heatsink is threaded so you just bolt it on.

I thought that the included management software was mostly useless. For home computers don't bother installing it. The BIOS has all the options and it's easy to use.

I also downloaded the latest driver (Windows 7 64) and have had no problems.

Adaptec offers this in a 4-drive and 8-drive version and I would recommend this to anyone needing a high performance RAID controller.

2 out of 5 eggsNo Support for RAID 5 or 6

Pros: -

Cons: The Adaptec 6805E does not support RAID levels 5, 5EE, 6, 50 and 60. The Adaptec 6805 (without the E suffix) does support these RAID levels. However, the 6805 costs about twice as much.

Other Thoughts: I bought the 6805. However, I almost bought the 6805E by mistake.

5 out of 5 eggsNo question, buy it. But also get a fan.

Pros: Blazingly (pun intended) fast.
Eight drives, even the newest 4TB 6GBps SATA drives.
Also SAS.

Cons: It can get very hot if you don't have adequate airflow. Give it plenty of air (see below).

Doesn't do the more advanced RAID levels 5,6,50,60 but if you're building that type of server get the more expensive 6805 or 7805. My experience with RAID-5 over the years has been bad, I prefer mirrored RAID-1.

Other Thoughts: This card replaced an old Adaptec HostRAID 1430SA in my home server (Core i7-950, 24GB, Windows Server 2012, Hyper-V). Now I can add four more drives plus it is a whole lot faster. I also added a hot swap drive cage for easy access.

Don't waste time with the included CD, always get the latest drivers from Adaptec's website. Also go through the hassle of upgrading to the latest ROM while you're at it.

Out of the box, by the time I had the drivers and management software installed, I saw it start at 85C and quickly rise to 90C, before I even attached any drives. I added a 40mm fan (Newegg item N82E16835119050) and it ran at 65C; I moved it to a different slot with more clearance and added a 120mm side case fan blowing directly on the cards; now it runs a cool 40C under load.

Of the negative reviews reporting weird failures, I wonder how many of them were because it got too hot.

Both fans I used for cooling are available at Newegg, go ahead and get some when you order this or any Adaptec RAID card. Maybe Newegg could consider throwing in a combo deal with the 40mm fan with every Adaptec purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsCheep hastle but worth it

Pros: 128 mb cache 6Gb/s and 2 ports for plenty of HDD not bad. and it was pretty cheep as far as Raid controller's go and for the price it was very reasonable. the lights look cool when you first start it up.

Cons: Doesn't work out of the box for VMware esxi or Freenas or Nas4free. and the Raid controller adds its own bios and slows the boot time 5sec even with all the splash and junk disabled.

Other Thoughts: a video on you tube called """Upgrade MegaRAID driver for VMWare 5 0 and load LSI CIM provider under ESXi Server """" helped me tons just make sure you download the drivers from the adaptec website for your ESxi version and all you need to do is SSH to that one .vib fil, reboot your VM box and your golden. It's easier to run VM esxi hiperviser rather than Freenas or Nas4free. which makes more sense b/c you can do more now than just as a nas.

1 out of 5 eggsDrive failures can take out ENTIRE array

Pros: Not too expensive. Works as advertised until...

Cons: Had one drive of the array fail and the card lost the entire raid array. Showed NO drives at all.

Adaptec had me change the case (backplane), cables, power supply and even sent me a new card. All had zero drives, until I isolated and removed that one drive. Totally destroys the value of a raid array.

That drive had seemed to fail previously in the array and was pushed out in favor of the hot spare but seemed to be recoverable according to the Adaptec utility. Then later locked out the array.

BTW, also does not work well with Citrix Xen. You can do an initial install by getting a driver disk for adaptec, but when you do an update, it can lose drivers you've added and then hang up by not finding the card at boot. Might work OK as a non-boot drive but all in all not worth the trouble.

New 3ware 9650SE is working much better.

1 out of 5 eggsWithout a doubt, worst raid ever used

Pros: 8 drives

Cons: Unstable
controller kernel failures
Dropped drives that come back with reboot
Total failures that take machines down
HOT HOT HOT - Adaptec cheaped out and didn't put a fan on that stovetop

Added a fan and was actually able to build a 4 drive RAID10 array, it lasted 48 hours before the card died again. Prior to adding a fan it was dropping drives in the rebuild, these are raid ready drives, not consumer drives. It was found that 2 of the 9 WD drives were in fact bad, but I found 4 working well and even then the builds barely completed and move of data started before it crashed again.

Other Thoughts: I have used a large number of Adaptec cards in my time, this is hands down the worst ever.
