Intel RAID Twenty-four port Expander Card RES2SV240

5 out of 5 eggs AmazingCard 05/05/2014

This review is from: Intel RAID Twenty-four port Expander Card RES2SV240

Pros: It just worked. I have an ESXI VM with passthrough to a IBM M1015 card. Adding this card to the mix required 0 software changes on my part.

Cons: As others have noted, the 'installation guide' is a joke. I guess the thought process is if you buy a card like this, you most likely know what you are doing. Not worth losing an egg over.

Other Thoughts: Improved installation guide for a IBM M1015: Use one of the provided SAS to SAS cables to connect the SAS slots closest to the bracket on this card and the M1015. Use the other slot on the m1015 and the 5 remaining slots on this card to connect 24 drives using those SAS to 4xSATA cords. (1+5)x4 = 24. Math.

One of the reviews suggests that thing overheats. I preemptively through a COUGAR CF-V12H at this thing.
