Can't tell for sure as it's not deployed yet but just so you know 585 is a chip that only speaks x2 lanes, so you can easily saturate that bandwidth with two or three good SSDs. For HDDs I guess it's fine but as fo this particular one, I just didn't fully deploy it yet. I needed an M.2 controller because X12SAE doesn't have enough SATA ports and I didn't want to use PCIe slots for that.I am thinking buying the 5 port m.2 controller, do you like it?
The Optane DIMM's themselves. Not sure if they didn't flash correctly or didn't activate correctly but somehow the process just hung. We let it run for days and it appeared finished. I think the controller software just gave up. When the dimm's are inserted into a machine it never posts, just hangs testing the memory forever, days forever.firmware for what?
