I have gone through a lot of debugging steps; there's too much to dump here, so here's the cliff notes: - My goal is to run Proxmox. I've ran it on this system before, just without the HBA...

    HBA newbie here with an LSI card and have a couple of basic questions (6pin power/verifying genuine card)

    Just bought a lsi 9300-16i. Price seemed pretty cheap for this and I want to make sure I've got a genuine card. I've read that people verify their serial numbers with LSI to make sure they didn't buy a "counterfeit". Has anybody here done that? If so, could you be kind to point me in the...

    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...

    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.

    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...
