PowerEdge R730 - replace onboard S130 RAID

Hi There - I have a PowerEdge R730 that was purchased with onboard S130 software array controller.  It has an 8-bay 3.5" backplane for the drives.  Would like to purchase a PERC H330 raid card (P/N 405-AAEI) to do hardware RAID.  I am looking to know which Dell cables will be required to do this.  Any help or assistance pointing in the right direction would be appreciated!  Thanks.

Thompson344,

The cable needed to run the H330 to the 3.5" backplane would be part RG13T.

Let me know if this helps.

Thanks Chris Hawk!  - One more question on this..  Would I need to get two of these cables?  One for SATA and one for SAS?  

Thanks,

Chris

You would need two for each side of the backplane, not for sas and sata. Both will be supported regardless of if 1 or 2 cables are installed.
