LSI LSI00297 CacheVault Accessory kit for 9266-4i and 9266-8i
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: finally, a battery backup that doesn't wear out every 18 months. i hope. easy & flexible install with provided short and long cable for the supercap.

Cons: i wish LSI made an all-in-one controller. i had to buy this separately and bolt on the logic board to the controller and mount the supercap in my case.

Other Thoughts: i actually used this on an LSI 9271-8iCC controller. it's compatible even though the item title doesn't say so.

LSI MegaRAID LSI00334 (9271-8iCC) PCI-Express 3.0 x8 Low Profile SATA / SAS RAID Controller - Single
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: works like a charm. no trouble, no fuss. linux just works right out of the box.

Cons: runs a bit hot to the touch, but surely within spec. just wish there were a decent way to provide airflow.

Other Thoughts: i tried really hard to get "fakeraid" to work reliably under linux over the years because it is a lot cheaper. every time, i get disappointed and frustrated and run back to LSI/megaraid. in fact, this is my 4th generation of megaraid controllers and i couldn't be happier to not have to deal with the quirks of linux "fakeraid".

SUPERMICRO MBD-X10SAE-O ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C226 DDR3 1600
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: works as expected. no fuss. no-nonsense bios. just install & enojoy. ECC support actually works, unlike certain other manufactuer's "workstation" boards.

Cons: not crazy about the 2 legacy PCI slots. do we really still need these? i'd rather have additional PCIe slots.

Other Thoughts: now that we can get integrated video right on the processor, why do manufacturers still bother including a superio chip for VGA and legacy PCI???
