First of all I would highly recommend that you post all your system specs and what your goals are for your system. Once you have figured out how much storage you need then you can figure out the capacity and number of hard drives you need. I’m currently bidding on a second hand server, Dell R, going to see how this turns out. At this point, I figured, let’s buy a different one, which has been tested by other users. So carefully scroll down the list of different drivers until you find the one for the Marvell 91xx devices. This means you will max out below the SATA3 threshold.

It wasn’t an option; Z77 meant new CPU too X58 is the last of the boardsso that wasn’t doable with the budget. This is of marvvell the easiest way to upgrade but costs more since you are replacing all the hard drives, but it’s an option. The downside is you are still running a RAIDZ1 setup and if two drives fail in either VDEV then all your data is gone, but mrvell is the second easiest way if you cannot destroy your pool.

Marvell 88se | FreeNAS Community

What I see is a low cost system and you just need to add a little bit more storage. Has anyone who has an Asus P7P55D-E mobo downloaded and installed the latest drivers and firmware listed for the Marvell SE controller on the station-drivers page? First one was literally made from scraps. For what data you have given, I’d say the posting by BigDave it the resource I’d use, however you also are not familiar with what a Kernel is so this tells me that you are really looking for someone to just tell you what will work for your system.

I bought a dawicontrol dce controller, pci-e x1, 2 sata ports, a while ago. Joined Feb 15, Messages 15, Thanks 3, All installation instructions and labels for the drivers are in English. It just chafes me that they never got the damn chip to work.

It has both the raid utility and the driver updates in it. It was firmware 2. Just another option to think about. Click on the different files and below you will see the version numbers. This card “should” work in one of the X1 slots on your motherboard however I personally have not tested it in a X1 slot. Found this highpoint rocketshould work according to an other thread. Also got the utility. I am left with deciding if I want to take the risk of using the Station-drivers files.

Please note, use these at your own risk. High-performance RAID storage controllers with features and flexibility that systems designers need.

Margell be shy, post all the data you can think of, even if you don’t think we need to know it, such as the computer case so we have an idea on if the case can cool a hot HBA card. The photos and other personal files, if you are not already doing so, I’d periodically place those on DVD s because generally photos cannot be replaced and something can go wrong and you loose all your data.

Even if you find the original BIOS firmware version, which I doubt, many firmware updater programs do not allow downgrades. The latest revision is great! This is not a quick task.

Basically, I’m drowning in information, most of it doesn’t even make sense to me. Thanks for posting the firmware updates and speed tests folks. I have been updating my anti-virus software and performing scans on these files. It appears that you have not used any of the PCI-E slots but if you have, please state which slots were used and what card is installed.

You may search this FreeBSD hardware compatibility notes document to discover if the hardware you have is supported by the OS. Don’t know much about how it works, just followed the manual, and it worked.
