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).
What age server is it? I might have something for you.
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 :)
That would be great. Any ETA/price on this? wanting to get it in my hand for Thursday :)
I'll do dig around now and get back to you in a few minutes :)
Ta, I have a feeling you wont have any.. :P
You're right unfortunately! :(
I did think that atleast a couple of them would have the optional raid card addon, but no.
No problem mate :)
Do you know if that raid card will work with a 16bit raiser card?
