Prior to buying mine I did some research and found that SAS support
is probably a ways off, unfortunately. So I purchased mine without
disks in the hopes of booting and running from the RAID card....
however, I missed the fact that it only has low-profile slots and the
LSI cards are not available in low profile.
Are you planning to run a RAID card on yours? If so, which one? The
only one that seems to have a chance of working for me is the Adaptec
2230SLP (I need dual channel).
