3 out of 5 eggs Unit failed after 2 months 08/09/2012

This review is from: Intel RAID Twenty-four port Expander Card RES2SV240

Pros:

Unit worked as expected...very fast, no drama. 3 stars for quick failure...would have give lower, but it works so dang well...hoping my failure was just a fluke.

Cons:

Units runs hot. Failed after 2-3 months usage. Seeking RMA. This is even after I installed a small fan blowing on the heatsink to ensure adequte airflow.

Other Thoughts:

Using on a Windows server with LIS 6870-4i card to increase the number of ports. Running 8 drive RAID 6 array (does not include 2 hot swap drives) - heavy/near constant IO. Also running online backup with 4 drive RAID 5 array. Offline backup of 3TB drives. Users are media editors. Power supply is 700W unit. 16GB ram, i5 processor.
