    Looking for RAID Controller to Configure NVMe SSDs in RAID 0 as a Single NVMe Drive (Not SATA/SAS)

    I don't think such a raid controller exists, microchip and broadcom use "ancient" (and known working/stable) stacks/ip for their controllers. Nvme is "too new" to entirely change these stacks :D

    SM H12SSL-C-O fan settings

    The thresholds only set values when the bmc logs warning or failures. The bmc send pwm values like 30%, 50%, 100% etc. to the fans. I think in older bmc chips it was possible to modify these values not sure if it's possible wit aspeed 2500 and newer.
