LSI MegaRAID Internal  Low-Power SATA/SAS 9240-8i 6Gb/s PCI-Express 2.0 RAID Controller Card, Single--Avago Technologies
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is a follow-up to my review -- -- and all the pros still apply.

Cons: But here is something new. On some motherboards you can either use the LSI adapter or the motherboard SATA adapter but not both. I started with an Asus motherboard but I was having stability problems so I replaced it with a Supermicro server motherboard. The Asus was either/or, the Supermicro you can use both. Another problem, you cannot mix and match configurations. I started with a RAID-5 on the LSI card with a regular standalone 120 GB for a boot drive. Any drive intensive task on the RAID-5 would cause the OS to reboot. I moved the 120 GB to my Supermicro motherboard, and I have not had any stability problems since.

Other Thoughts: If you can work around the quirks it really is not a bad product. Knowing what I know now I would not hesitate to install another one if I could guarantee the right situation. Don't have multiple configurations and you should be okay if your motherboard is compatible.

Team Xtreme 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model TXD316G2400HC10QDC01
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The memory timings and voltage are recognized in the UEFI. It is a good price for the speed.

Cons: But I could never get it POST at full speed, even with the timings and voltage provided. I did get it stable at 2133 MHz. Good enough for me.

Rosewill LINE-M - Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case -  Dual USB 3.0 Ports, Dual Fans Included, Supports Up to Four (4) Fans and Up to 12.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This case has 4 front USB connectors and no firewire connectors. Firewire is not really needed anymore so that is a bonus. Two case fans are included, I just wish the front one had no LED's in it. It is roomy and easy to work with.

Cons: The backplane has punchout covers for the expansion cards instead of removable blanks. Some blanks are included, but that just shows how dumb it was to not put them in already. The power supply holes don't seem to line up well. I had to pull the front cover off and re-route the wires for the power button, reset button, and such through a different hole because they weren't long enough to reach the connector on the motherboard. I don't like how the hard drive brackets are.

Other Thoughts: You do have to put the motherboard in differently, but it is not confusing. I would buy this again.
