    HP 761879‑001 12GB DL380 Gen9 SAS Expander Card

    This is a steal for the new SAS3 expander from HP, which conveniently uses SAS2 cables, so you don't have to buy all new cables! Unlike the old HP SAS expanders, all 36-ports are internal, but like the old one it needs PCIe power. I got one for $200 a couple of months ago, but haven't had time to hook it up yet - please buy them all before I am tempted to buy another one or 2!

    Yes, I thought the single I found at $200 before was a steal, but this was absurd - thanks for removing temptation everyone :)

    I just picked up 2x that the seller listed for me. They have bent ports so I bought as is and took the chance.

    He actually has 8 more but isn't listing them since they seem to have worse physical damage.

    HP Expansion Board Controller Smart Aray 761879-001 727252-001

    The seller relisted the ones with the bit of damage. The two I received from my earlier order are in pretty good shape except that the metal port guard is lifted on one port each. It looks like a very easy fix with a soldering iron.

    *** I haven't tested them though so proceed at your own risk. ***

    Also, msg him beforehand and specify that you're only interested in the ones with lifted ports and maybe ask for more pics.

    Easy to resist. I don't have any 12GB drives and having bought a dozen new drives already this year I wasn't about to upgrade.

    For hard drives, 12Gbps is overkill. But for a few Intel DC S3500/3600/3700 you need more than 350k iops. I believe these deliver over 1 million iops.
