Manual says IR mode for this board (IT mode for the JBOD version), but IR can be used for pass through. So...not sure about IT mode. I'd hazard a guess that you could flash it.does the onboard LSI 2308 chipset allow the SAS connectors to be used in IT mode?
thank you! placed my offer, waiting on response.Manual says IR mode for this board (IT mode for the JBOD version), but IR can be used for pass through. So...not sure about IT mode. I'd hazard a guess that you could flash it.
EDIT: Google tells me this is easily done: Flash LSI 2308 to IT-mode on a SuperMicro X10SL7-F mainboard – Widodh
EDIT2: Even closer to home:
Flashing the LSI2308 on a SuperMicro X10SL7-F motherboard to IT mode: where is firmware version 16?
Flashing the LSI2308 on an X9SRH-7F to IT mode?
EDIT3: Download the latest firmware from Supermicro's site (ftp://ftp.supermicro.com/driver/SAS/LSI/2308/Firmware/IT/). There are instructions inside.
You get the idea, I'm done.
It will fit, but you're going to have issues with airflow on account of the location of CPU1 (and associated RAM slots) since normally those chassis don't have fans that far down (just blanks for cable passthrough to the front) and routing the SAS cables is going to be a real pain (and will impede airflow). I'd recommend against it.Could these be used in a sc113 1U or is that asking too much?
I see they have a listing for X10SLM+-F mobo, at $60, so maybe they just re-used the item description details on accident.Wow, good eyes on it, I got 2 for 100 each, hope will get what it is...
