This review is from: LSI 9300 MegaRAID SAS 9361-8i (LSI00416) PCI-Express 3.0 x8 Low Profile SATA / SAS High Performance Eight-Port 12Gb/s RAID Controller (Kit)--Avago Technologies

Pros: I put it in a CentOS 6 server with a MB ASROCK|Z97 PRO4 LGA 1150 R motherboard. It's been 6 months and as I recall it installed with no trouble at all.

YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE there is enough cooling, I guess in a proper server case with really good ventilation it would be OK, but I put a 120mm fan blowing directly at it. It's just the way it is, plan for it.

But, one the server came on-line and I started copying files to the server I was really happy with the speed, way faster than the integrated raid on the machine it was replacing

Cons: $$$$$. that's the only one I can think of. Starts at $600 but you really should purchase the LSI LSICVM02 CacheVault Accessory Kit for another $190 so you don't lose the raid in a power outage.

Other Thoughts: If money is not an issue this seems to be a good solution for a small business server. Just make sure it supports the MB and OS you use.

3 out of 5 eggsgood RAID card, bad cooling

This review is from: LSI 9300 MegaRAID SAS 9361-8i (LSI00416) PCI-Express 3.0 x8 Low Profile SATA / SAS High Performance Eight-Port 12Gb/s RAID Controller (Kit)--Avago Technologies

Pros: High-performance card, easy to use software. Deserves 4 stars with a better cooling and 5 stars if all software features were accessible for no additional cost and for everyone, not only for corporate customers.

Cons: REALLY poor cooling, card gets to 112 degree Celsius in no time in an open PC case. Deserves -2 eggs only for this "super" feature. Some software features (encryption, SSD cache) are expensive, sold separately and only to corporate customers. Newegg blocks some words, so I'm going to call it softly as unfair...

Other Thoughts: What kind of reliability and performance can you expect from an overheated RAID controller at 112 degrees Celsius and repeated thermal stress? Common, LSI, you can do better than this. The software only measures the temperature once, during start, which is deceptive. Had to install a fan that blows directly on the card, which keeps the temperature below 44 degrees.

Pros: This is a fast card as promised. I'm happy with it.

Cons: My only complaint, which is not with this card specifically, but with LSI, is that it will not mount single drives.

5 out of 5 eggsLSI MegaRAID SAS 9361-8I

This review is from: LSI 9300 MegaRAID SAS 9361-8i (LSI00416) PCI-Express 3.0 x8 Low Profile SATA / SAS High Performance Eight-Port 12Gb/s RAID Controller (Kit)--Avago Technologies

Pros: Great Raid card that's extremely Quick (would be perfect for lots of SSD's)
Easy to Setup

Cons: Requires airflow of chip or it will run hot.

Other Thoughts: This was the first time that I'd used Hardware Raid instead of using software raid 0 or 1 in the years past. I built an HTPC with the hardware specs below. One thing to keep in mind is this card requires air flowing over the heatsink and it won't passively cool with just the heatsink. I had read a bunch of raid card reviews on other high end raid cards that mentioned that high performance raid cards have a Linear Flow Rating of air that needs to pass through the heat sink . Without this movement of air the card will run very card and it may in fact damage it or it may throttle back the performance.

I booted my rig up and installed the LSI software and I started searching for a chip temperature. After about 10 minutes I found it and was shocked when it was already up to 92 C. I powered it down and sat a 140 mm Cougar fan I had next to it and it drops the temperature down to 60C. Part of the issue was the raid card was sandwiched between my sound card and video card. Even with removing all but my raid card it still easily reached 80+C. Being that I want to keep my video card, sound card, and my raid card in an mAtx board it presented me with some issues. I thinik I've found a solution using a pci extender high speed flex cable hooked to my sound card and mounted further down in the case, but I wont know until I receive the adapter. As far as cooling goes, you need to have a fan mounted on the raid heatsink or a fan in your case blowing directly on the heatsink. I purchased some Noctua 40mm and 60mm fans to make an adapater and mount them to the card. I haven't mounted them yet but plan to in the weeks to come, for now I have that 140 mm fan jammed in the case which is cooling fine so far. I think one 60 mm fan mounted basically right on the lsi heatsink would provide enough cooling or maybe two of the 40 mm fans would.

My PC consists of

Intel I7-4771
MSI Z87M Gaming (mtax board)
Crucial 16gb DDR3 1600
Crucial M500 512GB SSD
6 Western digital 4TB Red's in Raid 6
EVGA 750 TI
Creative X-FI Xtreme Gamer Sound Card
Fractal Node 605 HTPC Case
2 Corsair SP120 Quiet Fans (intake)
1 Fractal Node 120mm Fan (Intake)
2 Silenx 80mm Fans (exhaust)

Now for the Raid 6 Specs (Running 6 WD Red 4tb drives) via CrystalDiskMark (1000MB)
