3ware 9550SXU-16ML

Recommended Posts

Hey all :)

I'm looking at setting my old PC up as media server/XBMC player, at the moment I have a basic sata card, 3114 chipset but want to upgrade (in the future) to 16 drives in the PC. I'm looking at the 3ware 9550SXU-16ML sata card. Just wanted to ask if it'd run fine without raid? And if anyone knows if it'll support 4TB drives?

Thanks in advance. :D

Hi jump1e,

The 3ware 9550 PCI-X parallele bus would not support >2TB drives. However, it would support > 2TB raid units (multiple drives < 2TB)

Its firmware has not been updated up to the 9650/9750 raid controllers.

Also, this controller is NOT compatible with 32bit PCI bus, only on PCI-X bus. (was there a PCI 64 bit bus ?!)

Regards,

MEJV
