I am setting up a HP DL-120 with a HP P410 raid card.
The problem is that the raid card uses PCI-E 2.0 and in order to insert it into the server I can use a PCI-E 1.0 converter (to make the card lay parallel with the mainboard) into a PCI-E 2.0 lane on the mainboard.
So my question is simple: Will there be a performance hit for using the PCI-E 1.0 converter?
The reason I need a converter is to make the card lay parallele with the main board to fit in the 1U. So Im wondering if I need to get a dedicated PCI-E 2.0 converter. The disks are 15k SAS drives so I need to make sure there is enough bandwith..
