  3. Replacing fans on MD-1510/LL

    Hi Need help: I want to replace the fans on my old MD-1510/LL box, that's a Lian Li PC-A17B case There are 3 fans there, are these 12cm fans? Will these fit? https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1285801-REG/corsair_co9050067ww_hd120_rgb_individually_adressable.html
  4. I would like to buy a new 9400-16i

    @Lev Understood but then why do you need unRaid? unRaid is about simplicity, easy of recovery, ability to mix different disks.. Don't you lose something in a way? Would FreeNAS be a better choice when performance is a main factor?

    @Lev It is really a monster, but tell me - why do we need a RAID controller for unRaid machine?

    Sure, I will update the forum, but it will take few weeks. I understand now the community is the basis for unraid :-(
  7. I would like to buy a new 9400-16i

    I hesitated ordering 9400-16i as it is quite new and wasn't sure about support.. Then I saw already discontinued 9300-16i is sold for 30% more than its retail. I looked for 9201-16i card. It is a card from 2011, but supposed to be sufficient for SATA3 anyway. I contact Benchmark Technologies that are considered the best retailer for these things on Amazon. They could not tell me what's the firmware version installed there, when I asked about manufacture date, they said it might be 2013 or 2015. So I pulled the trigger on Adaptec 1000-16i above, bought it yesterday from newegg. I saw here on the forum that it is supported in unraid 6.3 and later.

    On a second thought, SATA3 is limited to 600 MB/sec anyway, and I have no plans to put anything expensive like SAS drives into unRaid

    That might be an overkill, but even given your proven recommendation somewhat I hesitate buying 7-old card for a box, which I hope will serve me for next 8 years Maybe spend 200$ more for future-proofing on Adaptec HBA 1000-16i 12Gb/s -? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0187UOUDW/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 I saw it is supported by unRaid 6.3
  10. I would like to buy a new 9400-16i

    Should I put the 9201-16i into "IT" mode? What about firmware?
  11. I would like to buy a new 9400-16i

    Nice. Do you know if these are the cables I need to connect the drives? https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01BTEYLEQ/ref=ox_sc_act_image_1?smid=A21TE5CLHZDYA7&psc=1 Do you think that 0.5m will be sufficient?
  12. I would like to buy a new 9400-16i

    Nice, that's the drives I have as well. Today I have roughly half of this And the bottleneck is basically in the drives themselves, right?
  13. I would like to buy a new 9400-16i

    I usually buy from Amazon, I saw Benchmark Technology sells now How fast is this card? Did you have a chance to benchmark it?
  14. I would like to buy a new 9400-16i

    @Lev I have an old box bought directly from Lime maybe 9-10 years ago. I have 15 drives chassis, so I wanted to get a new supermicro X11 board, and add 16-port (internal) adapter so I could live happily for next 10 years. As it is unraid, I just need an HBA "plug-n-play" (but not "plug-n-pray"). Disks are SATA3, except for the m.2 cache drive, which I will mount directly to the motherboard. Do you know anything I can plug in, connect the wires, and forget under unraid -?

    This one seems to me cheaper https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816118273&cm_re=9400-16i-_-16-118-273-_-Product and passively cooled (?)
