Pros:

When it works, it’s fantastic. Great read and write speeds with RAID 5.

Cons:

I’ve had this card in four different motherboards trying to find a good match.

Other Thoughts:

First motherboard was an Intel G41 chipset board. It worked in that board, but since the PCI-e slots were only 1.1 the speed was not up to what it could be.

The second board was an Intel G55 chipset board. In this board it would work fine up until you hit the RAID stripe size, then it would jump randomly from huge read speeds to almost nothing. It seems that all P/H55 chipsets only run at half the PCI-e spec. This causes major problems with this card.

The third board was an Intel H67 chipset. The motherboard would not even post with the LSI card in. Stay far away from H/P67 chipsets and any RAID cards.

The fourth (and final) motherboard I’m trying is actually one on the compatibility list. SUPERMICRO MBD-X8STE-O I have high hopes for success with this board.

My advice, be very careful what motherboard you pair this card with.
