DawiControl SIL3114

Well, if you remember back to last December, I had some severe troubles with this fake ass RAID controller. At the time I posted my last problem (or rather, my conclusion) I already bought a 3WARE Escalade 9550SXU-8LP on EBay (used, since I didn’t want to spend ~400 EUR). Now after the controller arrived in mid-January, I ended up buying a new main-board, processor, memory, … in order to put the 3WARE card to use; initially I thought the 3WARE card would fit into my A7N8X-X, but apparently that only had a 16bit PCI-slot.

Now, after reinstalling the box, and a short while in the 3WARE controller BIOS, I ended up with a 2,9TiB RAID5 array. That’s it for this lovely DawiControl crap. If anyone needs one, I still have the one I bought at work (lying around in a shelf), holler me.
