Adaptec RAID 6405 2271100-R 6Gb/s SATA/SAS 4 internal ports w/512MB cache memory Controller Card, Kit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Great for the price, but has a few issues 10/09/2013

This review is from: Adaptec RAID 6405 2271100-R 6Gb/s SATA/SAS 4 internal ports w/512MB cache memory Controller Card, Kit

Pros: immeasurably faster drive speeds than any other raid card i have used, great management, good bios and software interface, gets good marks on the key points

Cons: HOT!, make sure it has a good fan near it or you will get overtemp alarms, also, makes resuming from sleep take forever (since it has to boot the raid card's bios during the resume, too a week of testing before i realized that the resume was just taking forever, I thought it was just not resuming at all)

Other Thoughts: Just a note all of my references to other raid cards are comparing to firmware cards, mobo raids, or software raids

Adaptec RAID 6405 2271100-R 6Gb/s SATA/SAS 4 internal ports w/512MB cache memory Controller Card, Kit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fastest full raid built I have experienced from any cards so far (only took 10 hours compared to the 18+ from the others i have used), good performance, good options.

Cons: If you dont have extremely good airflow where you plan to install it, or be prepared to get a fan for it (luckily it fits 40mm case fans, but uses screws not often used with fans so prepare a trip to a hobby shop), took a few tries before i realized that the the username and password it was asking for during the install was the computer's admin username and password

Other Thoughts: Bios configuration was quite standard, plenty useable (possibly a bit easier to learn then the web interface) but nothing special, web interface is very detailed, but took a good 30 minutes of just poking around to find everything I wanted, and not the most responsive interface either, will post an updated review once i get my fan, apparently, installing the fan usually drops the temp by a good 30 degrees and significantly speeds up the unit

ASRock Z77E-ITX LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs The do everything Micro ITX motherboard, but no beeper ?!? 09/12/2013

This review is from: ASRock Z77E-ITX LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Has everything, USB3.0, SATA III, PCIe 3.0, PCIe mini for wireless, display port, HDMI, eSata, Optical audio, put this in one of those micro ITX cases that takes a full PSU and video card and you have a Powerful, Portable gaming computer, drop an SSD on it and everything just gets better, this is a tiny titan and for a good price

Cons: Didnt care for the antenna, ended up just salvaging a standard antenna from one of my old routers, wiring it was a bit of a pain, some of the plugs were in unusual places, but i expect that has to do with how much they had to fit on such a small area, only 2 fan plugs on the mobo, it came with a mobo chearper, but I could not find anywhere to put it, so if you need to troubleshoot the board it will be significantly harder (this is actually my biggest con)

Other Thoughts: I replaced the wireless card so that i can connect my 5GHz wireless, no big deal, most dont support 5GHz wireless anyways, but the replacement card worked just fine, CPU was quite low on the board compared to most micro ITX boards i have used, but that didnt cause any notable issues
