I have to know before i purchase it if: 1. It can take 2 1TB HDD (Adaptec RAID 1430SA) and can help me out a bit. I have to know before i purchase it if: 1. It can take 2 1TB HDD in RAID1 WD1002FBYS in RAID1; 2. Can I install it on Dell PowerEdge 1600SC (only has 2x 64-bit, 66-MHz PCI; 2x 64-bit, 100-MHz PCI-X and 2x 32-bit, 33-MHz PCI) and if yes, will it work with the 1TB drives form point 1. Thanks More about : adaptec raid 1430sa 1tb hdds fla April 16, 2009 10:46:52 AM It's 1420SA, can't edit for some reason, when i submit it doesn't change it. themanstan April 16, 2009 2:39:13 PM I've used one of these as a JBOD adpater for one of my desktops in the past. These kind of adapters are limited to 2TB array/disk size per controller. http://ask.adaptec.com/scripts/adaptec_tic.cfg/php.exe/... From that i'd say you can fit 2 x 1TB drives as JBOD or RAID. The spec sheet says it's backwards compatible to 32/64bit PCI too. So take your pick on the slots, the faster the slot the faster the data transfer rate will be. http://www.adaptec.com/NR/rdonlyres/AA77EB33-FCD3-4D4A-...

But if you get 4-1TB drives and run them in Raid 10, you should be good. fla April 29, 2009 10:09:57 AM Thank you for information. I will go ahead and order it now. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
