Gen 8 6 drives power options


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


need a quick suggestion here....


My LSI 9211-8 arrived yesterday and i was able to put the P17 firmware on it mode since im doing some tests on NAS4FREE (runing from usb) and its the recommended firmware revision for zfs.



Currently i disabled the B20i raid card and move unplug the SFF-8087 cable from the motherboard and plug it to the lsi card to have full Sata 3 


Since this lsi card have 2 ports i will use the other port for the SSDs zfs cache


the problem is that i cant seem to find the power to connect this drives so i assume that i need some type of cable 


anyone knows which power cables or extension can i get to connect 2 ssds ?



LSI on IT mode 


Port 0 = 2x128 ssd

Port 1 = 4x4TB W RED



am i making any error here ? any way to increat the performance ?
