I ran out of space on my current arrays and ended up spending way more than I intended to get some enterprise (5 year warranty) 6TB Seagate drives - ST6000NM0024 at $430 each. They run hotter than my old Seagate 3TB drives but are a little faster and no louder so I'm happy as I doubled my storage from 14TB to 28TB. This should hold me for a while until I finally build my new 60TB server. My biggest issue is the lack of a modern 16i controller from LSI. I may get the Adaptec as I'd never want to buy an extender card - more heat and it slows down the system. I like LSI as I've used them for a decade or so but if I must I'll get the Adaptec.

They make a 24 port controller.

Really? Could you send a link or model number? All I can find is their ancient PCIe 2.0, 512MB, old processor model. I didn't know they had anything remotely current.

They also have as 16 and 12 port card. I suggest to always pick up at least two cards, which is what I do, in case of future failure.

Thanks - unfortunately those are old models. I was hoping They'd come out with something at least as current as the 9271 or the much newer 9361. 512 really isn't enough cache for 12 disks and that has an old processor on it. It also has the old PCIe standard. I could live with the old PCIe but the rest will be too little at this point. The Adaptec adaptec 81605ZQ would be a better choice currently however, if LSI had a 9361-16i or comparable card, I'd get the LSI.

There are more current boards out, but most people want the more affordable solution.

THanks - if you see a more current 16i or 24i LSI card please let me known the model number - one that includes at least 1GB of cache, one of the newer processors and ideally PCIe 3.0

FYI - I tried contact LSI but wasn't able to get a real response on any new 16i controllers.
