Can someone tell me if this can use raptor hard drives? It says SAS/SATA controller, but says SATA 300 and raptor drives are sata150. I am assuming they are backwards compatible, but I don't know for sure. If so ... i'm going to put 8 raptors in a computer on raid 0.

the model is LSI
MegaRAID SAS 8308ELP

Not that I'm aware of. 3ware do 2- 4- 6- 8- 12- 16- 24- port variants. Only 2- 4- and 6- are PCI-E x4 the others are x8 and x16 respectivley.

yeah ..i wonder if they ever will add more slots for cards ...especially with the video cards becoming ENORMOUS. the soundblaster card is about 1/4 inch away from my video card 1 and maybe an inch from video card 2 ..and no more room for pci or pcie except for the x4 slot closest to the cpu socket.

I think the best way to do large arrays is to have a dedicated fileserver.

That way you can run more drives on the x16 slots and use gigabit networking for file transfers.
