    How to Set Up a PCI Raid Controller Card:

    • Install the drivers that came with your RAID controller card. The drivers come on a CD packaged with the card
    • Shut down your computer and turn off the power supply. Disconnect every cable connected to the computer and then open the case. Open the computer by removing the screws around the outside edge of the rear panel, and then removing the side panel
    • Find an unused PCI slot on your motherboard. PCI slots are the long white rectangles. If the slot has a cover on it, remove it
    • Slide the card firmly into the slot, making sure that the metallic "teeth" on the card line up properly in the slot. Hold the card by the edges, and avoid touching any chips or components on the board
    • Close your computer's case, reconnect all the cables and boot up your computer. During startup you will be prompted with a key to press to enter RAID setup. The specific key will be different with different RAID controller cards and software. Press the designated key
    • Select the hard disks you want to use for the RAID, and which RAID configuration you want. The exact procedure will vary with your controller card and software, but each card offers essentially the same options, and at least RAID types 0 and 1. RAID 0 offers greater access speed, and RAID 1 protects your data by mirroring it across two drives. Select two identical hard drives to use for the RAID
    • Exit setup, and your computer will reboot automatically

    Package Included:

    • 1 x 2 Internal Ports SATA(SIL3112) Raid Controller Card

00:00:00 05-20-2011 Fully Satisfied Overall:  
  • Other Thoughts: Bought this product to add SATA drives to a FreeNAS NAS. Was able to install card into a Dell Precision Tower with FreeNas already installed. I plugged in the drives, and at boot time all the drives were found. No need to install special drivers... FreeNAS (which is FreeBSD based) had what was needed. I am not using the RAID capability so I cannot comment on that -- otherwise I'm fully satisfied with this product

00:00:00 05-03-2011 Good product Overall:  
  • Other Thoughts: This is a good product for basic RAID needs. It recognized all drives quickly and transfer rates are acceptable. The price is right for four additional SATA slots. It has a low profile and fits comfortably between a massive GPU and PCI wireless card. The software is terrible. I could see a non-technically minded person would have trouble with installation. I run Win 7 and had to manually dig to find the appropriate drivers. That's a minor complaint compared to the balance of the product.

00:00:00 04-28-2011 just what I needed Overall:  
  • Other Thoughts: This card works great and expands the number of SATA drives that I can put into my PC. It was easy to install and works like a champ. Arrived quickly, packed well. Couldn't ask for more.

00:00:00 04-12-2011 Works great! Overall:  
  • Other Thoughts: I'm only using this card to add four new SATA DVD burners to my system, so I can't testify to the abilities of its RAID function. However, for what I'm using it for, it's working perfectly. Sets up easily in my Win 7 64 bit system. I downloaded the latest drivers off the company's website and they installed without a hitch.

00:00:00 03-30-2011 Good way to upgrade Overall:  
  • Other Thoughts: I have a home server with an ABit motherboard with two onboard SATA I controllers. However, SATA II drives would not work. Installing this card was the easiest and least expensive way to upgrade to SATA II. In addition, the four controllers allows for easy future expansion of storage.

00:00:00 03-23-2011 great! Overall:  
  • Other Thoughts: I purchased this because my PC's 2nd Sata port was corrupting my hard drives. <br/> <br/>It solved the problem perfectly and i have no trouble since. <br/> <br/>A great work around for serious problem. <br/> <br/>I would purchase again if needed.

  • Other Thoughts: Works flawlessly for my Windows Home Server build, allowing me to seamlessly add 4 more SATA HDDs to my build when the motherboard's ports proved inadequate.

00:00:00 02-22-2011 It works...finally Overall:  
  • Other Thoughts: Using an old Dell GX280 system for a file server and to add more HD. Bought this and installed on an existing ubuntu 10.10 64-bit system. Installed out of the box, add a HD, and booted up. System did not see the card or the drive, I never saw the card BIOS screen (this is before linux starts loading). Then I reboot and without changing anything card BIOS showed up and found the additional HD. Next reboot the system lost the card/HD again. You get the picture...works on every other reboot. <br/> <br/>Not sure what was going on so I upgraded the card BIOS from 6.4.09 to the latest 6.6.00 from siliconimage.com. I installed the non-RAID version (b####.bin) and gave it another try. The card/HD BIOS shows up during bootup. I rebooted it multiple times and every time the card/HD shows up. Looks like either the BIOS upgrade on the card or switching it to the BASE BIOS version did the trick.
