    Is there any particular reason why the IBM ServeRAID M1215 is not listed?
    Its cheap to begin with and as such likely to be a good replacement one day for the M1015... unless there is a problem with it;) [($189 below, a bunch of them are on ebay)]
    (Lenovo / IBM ServeRAID M1215 (LSI SAS9340-8i) 12Gb/s SAS and 6Gb/s SATA Storage SCSI4ME: SCSI, RAID, SAS, SATA II, and Direct Attached Storage products at affordable prices!)

    And another question for the initiated - whats the deal with the N2215 being 'optimized' for ssd's? Is that marketing or are the real optimizations that make it worth getting (for ssds) over say the M1215;)

    One day the M1215/ 9340-8i will become the new M1015, when the cost of 12Gbps capable SAS disks drop in price and the cards themselves drop below about $75-$90 used. I would say it's a marketing ploy. The N2215 is a slick card to be sure, but it's the disk controller that's optimised for the disk, not the card driving it, unless it does something fancy I don't know about with the SAS interface that only SSD's respond to or has lightning fast cache that would assist a SAS3 capable SSD. The card can do 8 lanes of PCI-e 3.0 and provide 8 SAS ports at 12Gbps and claims over 1M iops, not too shabby and should definitely keep up with a modern SSD.

    All that aside, it will only benefit you if the rest of the hardware and infrastructure is also capable, which costs serious money :)

    I am looking for replacement screws, does anyone have the thread and screw dimensions that affix the full height and low profile brackets to the M1015 adapter?

    I tried some from an Areca card but they are not the same so my search continues to find the exact ones so I can order a few online somewhere.

    It's most likely coarse M3 thread (the more common M3 thread, and the one pretty much all generic and unspecified M3 screws are made with). 5-6mm long pan-head screws should do the job..

    EDIT: if in doubt, just buy 100 of each and find out! if it doesn't fit, find the next size smaller/larger and buy those and find out!

    Late to the party but page one lists the Dell Perc H310 2x4 internal as not tested. I have 5 of them flashed to IT mode in 2 servers for over a year now so that is tested enough for me.

    Has anyone used the IBM Lenovo N2215 / LSI SAS9302-8i PCI-E 12Gb/s SAS Controller?

    Just picked one of these up on ebay. It was the only 12GB/s SAS controller I could find with upwards facing ports.

    Hi, I have another one for your list of cards I don't know if the company changed names or what the story is but I do know that the firmware on the broadcom site does work for this 9361-8i which was made by a company called AVAGO, it has 1G of 1866Mhz cache according to the ROM which was still the original before I flashed it to the latest version, supports raid 0,1,5,6,10,50,60 from what I have seen as well as JBOD.

    Just thought you might like to know about it for completeness, seems like a pretty sweet card which I ended up paying 450NZ for, I've now got the cachevault and BBU on the way and am running 8 2TB drives off the beast with 5 Drives for Data, 2 Parities and a dedicated swap. full tilt it runs at 62c which is not wonderful so I am looking at customizing a lovely massive heatsync for it with a nice quiet fan that still has a good static pressure, ill throw the results of that test up as well, I am hoping to have it CNC'd so that the aluminium base will run above the cachevault but still sit on the ROC, in addition the heatsync is 100mm wide so should cover the ROC almost to the top of the PCIe Slot which is 103.6mm from memory - but hey will post results for everyone to see when its done.

    I think they changed the name back to Broadcom.

    IIRC, Avago acquired both LSI & Broadcom. Brocade & Emulex are under this umbrella too. Too many M&As to keep up with.

    It can be turned into an 9207 by crossflashing it as far as I'm aware. I believe it's also picky about which mainboards it works in, but as you're using it already as is, it should be no problem for you, just need the right firmware files etc :)

    No it's a SAS2208 based module and can't be flashed to IT mode.

    You're absolutely right, I stand corrected. Despite what I read, I was thinking of the KB version with the 2308 controller on it :)
