Mac pro 3 1 pcie slots

Any of you folks tried this board on a Windows 7 64 bit PC? Just wondering if this board will allow my currently throttled SSD to sing and give me the option later to add lots more SSDs to allow it to really sing. We are sorry things are not working out for you and your setup. There is quite a bit to your setup and many things to cover and ask.

We will be reaching out to you shortly to assist.

Thank you. The biggest performance benefit from this setup is with 6G SSDs requires a 2. Correct, always best to use SSDs. I would also like to ask, however: I recently transferred this Newertech card from a Mac 1. Am I missing something or doing something wrong? I did place the card in bay 2 16x PCIe 2.

Bloody amazing! Will I see any increase if I install 8 of these babies into one raid set? Is it better to keep the 2 separate sets of 4 one for reading and another for writing, or better to write to and read from one set of 8? OWC Ben. Do you have any idea about my unmounting probs?

Both the 2 Raids had some deconnection…. Carl Can you please precise your installation schedule? So I initialized them with Apple disk utility and then it seems OK.

I am using a Macpro 3. Try that and see if it makes any difference. Experiment with SSDs for fast throughput on single files of your work, and use standard drives for storage. Carl, Many THX for your answer!

Did you enjoy this RAID card? One other question…. That would mean x4 at each port, and x1 at each drive correct? Fantastic question! Ok, now I am confused. Can you please clarify. I am using this card in a Mac Pro 1. But I do not have the card connected directly to the motherboard. Thanks for your consideration. Sorry for the confusion. The previous question was asking since this was a x8 lane card with 2 Mini-SAS ports, each Mini-SAS port having 4 channels, does that mean each channel have a dedicated lane? The answer was no.

Each port will be independent of each other so your setup of 4 SSDs internally and 4 SSDs externally will have equal opportunity of performance and one will not inhibit the other. Thanks Ben! I appreciate you taking the time to answer my question. It was helpful. I may soon buy another card for I got another used Mac pro; this time a 3. I was glad to see the picture posted above depicting the cabling schematic.

I am new to this, and so this all has been a tad difficult to picture. I purchased this controller, just wanted to make sure one thing concerning the routing of the internal SAS cable. Is it correct that I am plugging this in place of an exciting cable on the logic board, which is NOT the Cale running to the back plate HDD connectors?

The MaxConnect cable coming from the Controller card will connect to the cable that was connected to the logic board.

Managing PCI-express slots in Mac Pros

The connection on the logic board will remain unused. Remember, however, to set the Expansion Slot Utility at 8x lanes. Oddly, when I confined my Radeon to 8x as well, it seemed to boost the speed of the controller card a bit. Does this remain the case? If I choose to install this card I will need to set up a bootable drive on an optical bay? Thanking you in advance,. So i got a where i installed this card.

Now i got my hands on a Mac Pro 4. Is it still not compatible for raid? We do have a few options available via the PCIe slots on the machine. Yes, the card can be installed and used in a MacPro5,1.

However, there are two caveats. First, the card is not bootable, so a valid boot drive would need to be setup in the optical bay. I installed one in my Mac Pro 1. Should work on the MP 5. The card comes with two mini SAS connectors: one internal and one external. You do not have to connect it to the existing drive bays in the Mac Pro to it. The additional Sata connector below the fan assembly can take a boot drive.

Want amazing new performance out of your old Mac Pro? Here's how

I removed the CD drive and found plenty of room there to stash additional drives. By removing the CD drive you will also have 2 additional Molex power connectors. I power the external drives with an external power source. Hope this helps. I recently purchased this for my Mac Pro MacPro5,1 because I saw that it was compatible with this computer.

The Mac Pro Upgrade Place

But as I went to install it, I realized that I still needed some kind of cable. Coming back to this article and reading the other comments, I realized that the Mac Pro would need a special cable that you have not yet made back in February It is now July Has the necessary cable been made? Is it even possible if the SATA connectors are directly on the motherboard? If not, then I may have to just do what the reply from Carlo Tanne states and that is to simply give up trying to connect the internal drive bays to this card and just find other work arounds to use the internal SAS port.

I have a mac pro early 3. This configuration is on x16 PCIe slot and the rest are x4.
