    Raid Card

    Hi Guys.

    I'm looking for a raid card for my IBM x3455. Looking to mirror 2 500GB WD drives. I spend 3 hours looking for a on-board raid the other day and found nothing. Cheap as possible. I don't want to speak £200 on a raid card.

    Any advice would be great. (I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to Raid cards).

    Cheers
    Rick

    In all honesty i dont know the age off the top of my head. 2008 maybe? I have a 16x riser card in there... Thats what's confusing the hell out of me.

    Iv been advised to look at these

    PCIe SATA 3.0 Controller Card - 6gbps | 2 port | StarTech.com United Kingdom

    Think it might work?

    I might be able to get you a genuine one for the model. I've got a pile of 2008/9 X3455s sat here

    You're right unfortunately!

    I did think that atleast a couple of them would have the optional raid card addon, but no.

    Sorry!

    Do you know if that raid card will work with a 16bit raiser card?
