I can tell you that the LSI cards haven't been the best to me when connecting them to my 830/840 pro / 850 pros. =/

having tried 10+ raid cards for that drive in the last 3 months I can tell you that the Adaptec RAID 71605 Storage Controller 2274400-R has given me the best throughput. In my case I was doing a 12 disk array. I think it comes down to the bus as this card has a PCI v3 x 8 whereas the others i tried, LSI, HP, intel, highpoint (lol) were not

Any reason why you don't want to use NVMe drives? The intel 750s kick butt
