...or you could pay $70 (+shipping) for these surplus these NIB Intel RS2WC080:Kind of glad I missed this deal and paid $40 for my H310's now...
I've flashed all 4 of mine with the LSI 9211_8i P20 IT firmware; so I would strongly suspect that they'd work in non-Intel motherboards. However all of mine are in Intel S2600CP2 boards...
I just bought from this seller Dell HV52W PERC H310 8-Port Internal 6Gb/s SAS / SATA RAID Controller with T3F4V (it comes with the original Dell SAS cable, so these shouldn't have any of the tomfoolery/failed flashes/broken cards we just experienced (hopefully). I bought my first working card from esisoinc, but they are sold out right now.
Make one up, I can shoot ya what they 'should be close to' hell I don't even care if you steal/borrow mine, long as you have unique sas addy's in what fabric/chassis you hook up to it will be fine w/ whatever unique 16 digi addy you assign via 'sas2flsh -o -sasadd 5000XXXXXXXXXXXX'
Send them to me, may be able to bring back to life :-D
Good hell I need to catch up on this thread, Dell 6Gbps FW IS IT mode, some say to not go past this but I always cross-flash to LSI 9211 IT mode from here by going first to v7, then WHATEVER FW ver your heart desired from there be it v19/v20, no need to step it like I did in those directions of old I have found now.Well, I did a sas2flsh -o -f 6GBSSAS.FW
And that worked.
But, not sure it's going to let me go from that to IT.
I did this on both cards. I did get one working last night, but the other doesn't show up at all in megarec, megacli, or sas2flash, so I think it's dead.Send them to me, may be able to bring back to life :-D
You all try 'sas2flsh -o -e 6' for a fresh start or P7/Dell 6Gbps firmware if that aligns w/ what card ya got.
