Interesting... They never said that to me.  I have an issue with an  
external Dell Powervault array that always reports failure of  
whatever is in position 0 once the array is active.  It will format  
it, etc. without failure.  If I swap the channels on the 320-2X card,  
the error stays with position 0 on the array.  If I drop the channel  
down to U160 from U320, no errors.  This leads me to believe that the  
backplane of the array box is not up to spec for U320.

The funny thing is that and Adaptec 2230SLP card has no issues with  
the array whatsoever.  I've not had problems with LSI cards on risers
