I haven't noticed since I only had the drives for a day and was playing around with freenas configuration of the pools. It did mention fixing some kind of corruption issue and better garbage clean up. I don't recall all the details since it was done like 12 am when I was mostly dead. The tool did update all the drives at once within 5 min period or less.Do you notice any improvement with the firmware update ??
I am not @marcoi but in my case, upgrading the firmware to 019 did not solve the overheat problem and the life expectation is still 99%.Do you notice any improvement with the firmware update ??
I think the only way to find out to test it out, unless someone here have used that specific branded cable for SAS3 SSD.Anybody else using quality 8482 cables and getting SAS3 speeds? They seem to be quite less expensive than the 8680 and easier to find.
Are there any quality 8643 to 8482 with SATA power connectors? Like these: https://www.amazon.com/CableCreation-Internal-SFF-8643-SFF-8482-connectors/dp/B01GPD6FZE
Thats a SAS2 (6Gbps) HBA, but the drive is capable of SAS3 (12Gbps *2) speed. You'll lose out on a considerable amount of bandwidth, but it should work.Any chance of this cable working with these ssds?

Yeah, I just wondered if anyone knew of Amphenol or SuperMicro (or other name brand) having cables like the ones linked to. I bought one of the Amphenol 8482 ones you linked to for the time being. Thanks.I think the only way to find out to test it out, unless someone here have used that specific branded cable for SAS3 SSD.
Since it is from amazon returning might not be too troublesome if it doesn't work as intended.
Lucky for me I actually prefer molex power connector than sata, however I did a quick browse through the net and could not find any known trusted brand cable that uses sata power. Unfortunately I have not received my drive yet however my current desktop are using the same cable I recommend connecting a pair of sandisk lightning 2 drives and they worked perfectly at 12Gb.Yeah, I just wondered if anyone knew of Amphenol or SuperMicro (or other name brand) having cables like the ones linked to.

Got mine installed into my workstation. I have a spare Dell H330 that I used for the controller. I used some Amphenol "12Gb" cables and they do indeed link at 12Gb. Interestingly, these seem to be two 800GB drives in RAID0? It shows as mraid0:0.
These are the cables I used.

Here is a quick CDM run on the fresh drive. Looks like I'm hitting the limits of a single SAS3 channel.

Here is the temperature reported in Storage Executive. This is a few minutes after the CDM run. Right after it was at 44*C.
