Yes, Patrick already reviewed it here back in August.Isn't this one the SM server they reviewed with the elongated model name?
I'm confused. The board has no 8087 connectors. to directly connect to sata disks, you will use a 8643 to sata breakout cable. If connecting to a backplane then you will use a 8643 to 8643 or 8643 to 8087 straight cable depending on the Backplane.I'm uncertain how to configure the LSI 3008 controller's SFF-8643 "SAS0-7" ports to work with plain old SATA drives. (The SFF-8087 "SATA0-7" ports work fine.)
