    I could never trust that 1. Are you going to send them all back?

    ...or you could pay $70 (+shipping) for these surplus these NIB Intel RS2WC080:
    Intel RS2WC080 RAID Controller SAS/SATA MD2 6GB/s PCIe 2.0x8 New in box, Retail Packaging
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/201389073881

    They advertise this for $240, but over the past couple of weeks, they've been accepting $70/per (I've bought 4 myself).

    It's a heck of a bargain considering it also comes with (2) minisas -> 4xSata cables.

    Funny you mention that @jmck I re-tried 2 of the 5 that didn't work in UEFI and DOS a couple times to make sure they were in fact not detected (they never did), then I put in the "working one" and it still was detected.

    Opening ebay claim for 5 / 6 and will put the 'working' one through some tests so I have time period still left to return it at a lter time.

    :eek: now I need to find a dozen more HBAs still, yay, thanks stupid ebay seller.

    @jwegman I'm loving that seller. Scored a awesome deal on a barebones LGA2011 today.

    I bet they'd go lower than $70 per with an order of a dozen.

    @jwegman do those work in Non-Intel motherboards? I got some of their RAID LSI last year...

    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 don't think they're going to accept less, or much less than your $70 woiw!

    @rubylaser

    Both my returns were closed.
    Seller refunded.
    Does not want items back.

    Must know they're dead / untested... :eek:

    Thanks! I was just issued the same return. I just bought a couple more (more expensive) to use as replacements for these duds.

    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

    You all try 'sas2flsh -o -e 6' for a fresh start or P7/Dell 6Gbps firmware if that aligns w/ what card ya got.

    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.

    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.

    I also can't flash anything to the sbr portion, but as I understand it, that isn't used when the card is in Fusion mode anyways.
