- RAID 0/1/0+1/5 JBOD
- 4 x SATA II Internal Connectors
- Up to 3Gb/s
Didn't work at all for me 01/08/2013
This review is from: Koutech IO-PSA420 32-bit PCI SATA II (3.0Gb/s) Controller Card
4-slots....if they worked
Bought this card simply for the extra SATA slots. Didn't even mess with RAID and it destabilized my whole system. 80% of the time it would lock everything up during the windows load screen (I'm using 7 64bit) and it would just stay there. The few times the OS decided to load there were "E"s everywhere on the screen...literally the letter E...everywhere. Weird stuff. The few times I made it to the desktop it didn't perform any better. Once i started copying to/from a drive it would take about 60 seconds before a system message would appear saying the drive was no longer available.
I stayed up until dawn trying to figure this one out. Installed both new and old drivers, flashed newest RAID bios, everything. The thing works fine if you unplug all connections, but if any drives are plugged in (i.e. you're actually using the card) everything goes down the drain quick.
