RAID Card For Precision 7920

Jump to solution

I've got a Precision 7920 that I purchased about a year ago, and I'd like to add a RAID volume for storage on it. I'm currently using a PCI-e SSD as my boot drive, and I would like to use some SATA Samsung 860 Pro drives in the 4 front hot swap bays for the RAID volume.

Is there a recommendation on what RAID card would be best to use?

Thanks,

Rob

Hi @robkbriggs,

Check out this post:

Upgrading Storage in the Dell Precision 5820 | 7820 | 7920 Tower Workstations

It mentioned MegaRAID 9440-8i and MegaRAID 9460-16i throughout the post. May have a look on it.

@robkbriggs Not at all. I'm looking for a raid card for my T5600 as well ^^
