M1015 46M0831 vs SAS9220-8I


Post by Onichan »

I was looking around for a M1015 card as I heard it's the best way to go and I found this site http://www.serversupply.com/CONTROLLERS ... ID%20M1015 that says it has one for $85, but it lists a few versions. I googled around and it seems like the 46M0831 is an OEM card while 46M0861 is the addon for servers that don't come with it. I couldn't find anything that told me what the difference between those two and the SAS9220-8I thought. I have emailed the site, but they haven't responded. Anybody know anything about them?

An Intel Sasuc8i also works great and have 8 ports.

The new one : - Sandstorm (revision 847) on USB 8GB Verbatin, ASRock A75M-HVS and A4-3300 CPU, BeQuiet 350 Watt , 8 GB DDR3 Ram. 4 x 2TB HD204UI RaidZ1, 1x WDRED 3TB UFS Singlestore. HP Procurve Switch 1810 G8 - 8-Port. That's all about 11 TB of pure fun.
