This review is from: LSI MegaRAID LSI00330 (9271-8i) PCI-Express 3.0 x8 Low Profile SATA / SAS RAID Controller - Single--Avago Technologies
Pros: absurdly fast, tech support is very on-point, has low profile bracket.
Drivers and firmware are straightforward and well supported across the board.
used in multiple builds with SSD arrays (Samsung 840 Pro and Mushkin Chronos Deluxe), no problems, throughput is off the chart.
Cons: It needs on-board cooling, no exception. The card overheats in a workstation chassis. You MUST MUST have a high CFM PCI slot cooling fan just under this card to avoid overheat.
You can never have enough airflow over this card. cant stress that enough.
Other Thoughts: Aside from the cooling issue, its the best card out there. The BBU and FlashCache are pricey though.
