Recommended Posts


Anyone try a Rocket RAID 2720 in their T20 yet?

Don't own either of them, but I would be shocked if it didn't work.

Not a real fan compared to what's out there.


The RR2720 is already around $150.  For slightly more, you can get a four-port caching hardware RAID controller from Adaptec.  If you need all eight ports, you can pay about $90 more and get an eight-port caching one.  IMO, they're more reliable solutions.


Alternately, you might find a Dell RAID controller as a system pull on Ebay.  Look at this H710P for $200 with cache and battery; that's what I'd get.

I've removed the off topic portions of this thread and think it best to lock it down.

      I'm new to the HPMSG8 world and so far I'm loving it. I have a stock Xeon with 16G of aftermarket memory with iLO patched to 2.70. Next up is adding a RAID card, so I can put my boot SSD on the onboard RAID. I picked up a LSI SAS9211-8i on Amazon, but am struggling to flash it to IT mode on the MicroServer. Is this even possible? Unfortunately, the only other system I have with PCI slots is 32-bit.
      Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

      Hello! I put P222 on my Gen8 server, but I can not use RAID6. Can someone share the key?

      I have recently found the time and energy to set up my Microserver. 
      HDD BAYS:
      Could someone please confirm if there are any issues with Creating a Raid 1  array with BAY 1 (6Gb/s) BAY 3 (3Gb/s). My logic is that speed of data access takes precedence over mirroring speed so 1 logical drive of Bay 1 & Bay 3 (Raid 1) and the other logical drive of Bay 2 & Bay 4 (Raid 1).
      Is this a good Idea or I have I overlooked a potential technical issue. I searched the web for a possible answer but nothing came up.
      Thank you.

      Like the look of the new DELL XPS 15 2-in-1 with the new Intel CPU/AMD GPU hybrid design.
      Never really been sold on the idea of a laptop as a desktop replacement ...
      ... but this looks like a contender.
