Intel RAID Twenty-four port Expander Card RES2SV240
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs WOW!!! 01/11/2011

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

Pros: SAS Expansion with 24 Gbits/s per mini sas port! I have this unit working with my LSI Megaraid 9260-8i Raid controller. Attached I have 14 1.5TB Seagate hard drives running 3 raid 5 array. I am able to SUSTAIN transfer rates from one array to the other at over 500MB/ps not megabits !MEGABYTES!

Cons: If you have one please tell me?

Other Thoughts: You have to understand this is a SAS EXPANDER not a raid controller card its just presents the hard drives to the controller and the controller performs the raid functions. I cant wait to add 6 more 1.5TB drives to this unit.

SUPERMICRO MBD-C2SBA+-O LGA 775 Intel G33 ATX Intel Motherboard

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Can use for ESXI. It supports older hardware which allowed my to convert a previous desktop into a VMWare ESXI server. At minimal upgrade cost.

Cons: The BIOS is a little bit tough to configure. Not the BIOS in it entirely mostly the boots setting when it comes to configuring boot order. But once your familiar with it, its no problem. I wish it hard Dual gigabit ports.

Other Thoughts: All in all not a bad board. The overclocking that is allows you to configure is somewhat useless. It has pre-determined overages and when I set it to OC my CPU by 15% I get lower clock speed than what the CPU gets natively.
