Time to start B120i FAQ?

Recommended Posts

Royco

There are some questions about the B120I. Perhaps we should make a FAQ and make it sticky?

 

Q. AHCI vs B120i raid?

Q. B120i vs dedicated PCI RAID card (P222 or other)?

Q. Linux and B120i?

Q. Port 5 or ODD port?

Q. What is the B120i? (intel based HybridRAID solution?)

Questions, questions, what is it with you penguins and your questions?? :D

 

Actually, it sounds like a pretty good idea.

The penguin has a surprised or questioning ( :blink:) look on his face, doesn't he?

 

I will start working on some answers too. Hopefully someone can review and correct them, when/if needed.

Number one question: With the latest firmware, what is the fan speed when the raid is disabled?

One of the facts; the B120i cannot expand RAID arrays.

12-15% depending on CPU temp.  AKA loud.

I can report that when using CentOS with 4*3TB SATA Drives and one 120GB SATA, with AHCI mode on,  Plex Mediaserver doing indexing and copying data for hours on a Gigabit network makes the fan run at 10%.

 

Fantastic!!! I am so happy with my Microserver now.

Question

I get his error. Is my gen 8 broken?

Array Controller read cache was configured for this controller, but the system was unable to allocate the requested system memory. The read cache memory is set to 0MB

 

 

Answer

The B120i uses system main memory as read cache. If you've the default 2GB memory installed, you might get this error, and upgrading the size might solve it. See topic here
