5 out of 5 eggsFastest_12GB/s_Speed

Pros: very fast & handles lots of drives & does 12gb/s sas drives.
you couple this with a few 6TB 12gb/s SAS drives and the speed will blow your mind and much better than SSD's. The intel raid web console allows multiple arrays and allows you to change drives in the array and the type of array. Do not buy if you cannot afford the 12gb/s sas drives.

Cons: very expensive. Also you have to pay a lot of attention to the harness you purchase and Newegg may not have it and you will have to buy elsewhere. Performance negates the high cost. You also need to buy the battery kit and I do not think Newegg stocks it.

Other Thoughts: I run two of these babies each with the battery kit. Performance is through the roof with say 4 ssd's in raid 0 or say the real use being several 6tb sas 12 gb/s enterprise drives in raid 0 or raid 5 and you can switch the raid config back and forth or try another like Raid 6. It is nice to have a C: drive of 24 TB! If you not need lots of space do not buy. Note that the top score for hard drive bench test on the Passmark web site is done with RS3DC080 and the 12 gb/s enterprise hard drives .
