HPE Software Delivery Repository
Thanks! I had downloaded it from Wayback but yea I was entering 'legacy' the wrong way I guess. Their site isn't the most intuitive... I've had issues with three of my slots in my SuperMicro SC847 44-bay randomly disconnecting and I was hoping upgrading from firmware 16 to 17 would help. Edit: OK I mis-read their available downloads and see I'm already on the latest firmware... ah that's not great.
If you insist on hardraid, I'd go for somthing based around the SAS2208 or SAS3108 controllers then, though IMO doing som form of softraid is a better optionthanx a lot. I was searching and nothing. Can you recommend anything? I will use it in proxmox@raid5 with 5 SSD disks. Since I will put it on pci-e x4 port PCI-E 3.0 is necessary.
I wouldn't worry too much about cooling it when there are pci slot (not a product endorsement, just an example) fans available.Does anyone know whether the power consumption of a HBA is proportional to the number of connected disks?
I am debating whether to get LSI 9300 or 9305 card, the latter of which is easily twice or thrice as expensive, and power consumption would be the only selling point. I have a home server in a desktop case, so there is not really sufficient airflow to cool one of these cards (and I presume there are no aftermarket fan brackets).
