This review is from: Rosewill RLLB-13001 8 Watt Base E26/27 50 Watt Equivalent LED Bulb - Retail
Other Thoughts: a 60W standard incandescent is 840 lumens. At 581 this is more like a 40W replacement.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, Stable, Quick booting.
Cons: IT mode. Note that an LSI card in IT mode cannot run in a system that has another LSI SAS chip in IR mode. So if your MB has a built in 2008 SAS controller, both parts have to be in IT or both in IR, not one in each.
Heat. This board requires airflow. If in stagnant air, it will overheat and throw SCSI errors. The manual specs 100 FPM linear flow.
Pros: Very compact and efficient use of space. Can squeeze in 4 drives.
Cons: Cabling can be tough. You need everything to be the right length. Expect to custom make power cable/splitters if you use 2 or more drives. With non SM motherboards, the blower induces noise into the power supply rails which interferes with SATA comms. Our "usual" MB has the fan power jack right next to the SATA connectors and hard driver transfer rates toggled all the way down to 1MB/sec. The fan really needs a separate, direct off the power supply lead plus a couple of ferrite chokes.READ FULL REVIEW
