    Good afternoon everyone,
    Before I make a "financial" mistake on eBay, has anyone ever used a Dell Perc H730 (SAS3108 based controller) in something other than a Dell? Specifically an Intel S2600CP4 server board. Can the Dell Perc H730 be flashed to something else?

    Thanks

    I’m anxious on getting same raid controller for my old server.

    I don't know about this H730, but I have a H330 which is LSI SAS3008 chipset based HBA/IR SAS controller, and so far, it has not been possible to flash LSI firmware on it. I can't even flash updated Dell firmware right now because I don't have a Dell system that will allow Dell's firmware update to run. Since these are of the same Dell generation, I suspect you'll have similar issues.

    If your plan is to flash to some LSI firmware, I would not count on this H730.
