Hi Thomas,

I have found a used LSI SAS3041E-HP 4-Port PCI-E SAS/SATA RAID
controller on ebay. It comes around 70$ which is pretty much the same
price I paid for the junk am using now. Do you know if this is
supported because I can't find anything relevant in HCL and I read
that some people use it without problems.
