  1. This intel/LSI card seems to support 6GB/s data transfer and mentions SAS specifically. It also mentions SATA but has numerous references to SATA II not III in it's documentation. I have a SATA II capable older system and was thinking of reusing this raid card I no longer use as a SATA III card to improve thruput of the SATA III hard drives in the system. Anyone know what this card really is? If it is SATA II only, any suggestions of cards that I could use? Just a basic SSD drive and a few hard drives. No raid at the moment that I'm planning but if the card supported hardware raid wouldn't mind just don't want to spend much on anything for this older system I'm reviving. Thanks. JR
  2. Jus to give you some background info: My Configuration: Core i7 920, Asus Rampage Extreme II, 6 GB G.Skill DDR3 1600 RAM, Kingstone HyperX 240 GB SSD My motherboard only supports SATA II connections. I purchased Kingstone HyperX SSD a few months ago. This drive is rated at around 500MB/s R/W I was only getting speeds around 260 MB/s R/W through my mortherborads SATA II connection Was looking for a controller card which was bootable, and could provide better speeds close to a SATA III connections So after some research and playing around with a few controller cards, I finally purchased a SATA III controller card which is working like a charm for me ! Here is where I purchased this card: It is only $15 dollars ! It is bootable, only adds a few seconds to the boot time and my SSD drive now hits 380MB/s at read and 350MB/s at write (way better than 260 MB/s R/W on a SATA II). Here is some benchmarks I ran: I am curious to hear your opinion since many of the users purchasing a controller card to get better speed did not get what they where looking for.
