    Need SAS HBA/Raid Controller Recommendation

    I need to connect 4 SED Ultrastar HC550 hard drives somehow, but I don't know what to look for other than low price and number of ports. The drives are less than 285 MB/s each, so I doubt there would be bandwidth limitations. Does the HBA affect use of TCG Enterprise encryption? I was looking at...

    PCIe 5.0: any adapters to PCIe 4.0 2x16 or to 8 NVMe Gen 4 SSD?

    I got a 12600K used from a friend, and am deciding to build a NAS out of it with TrueNAS SCALE. The one thing that's exciting me is that this system would have a PCIe 5.0 x16 slot, which is a ton of bandwidth for things like M.2 NVMe drives - but I haven't found any sort of adapters or HBA's...

    From LSI 3008 to Adaptec ASR-71605...

    Hi, I'm doing a hardware upgrade on my server at home, and I'm planning to change the LSI 3008 on-board controller to a dedicated Adaptec ASR-71605. The LSI 3008 is used in IT mode, if I switch to the Adaptec controller, will it detect directly the hard drives as HBA and pass it through to the...

    Pin config issues on U.2 ports to NVMe M.2 IcyDock cage

    I've recently purchased a Gigabyte MZ72-HBO mobo and there are two U.2 NVMe (#38 & #39 on the board diagram in the user manual) ports attached to the CPU0. Rather naively, I assumed this meant that I could connect a SlimSAS to MiniSAS cable and run the Icy Dock MB720M2K-B 4x M.2 NVMe cage out...
