I have had a dialog with Alex regarding controller compatibility. You may look at the thread http://stablebit.com/Contact/Lookup/5118503
My two PCI controllers (Highpoint RR2320 and Promise SATA300 TX4) do not have the necessary capability in their driver. Also for reasons other than this I am contemplating replacing the controller cards with 2 8ch SATA non-RAID controllers. Supermicro, among others sell these cards for less than $100, but there is no evidence that the chipset will handle proper SMART communication.
Alex has verified that SiL 3132 and 3512 chips are OK and is prepared to do some more testing.
Has anyone experience with controller cards that play with BitFlock.
Where did you buy the MPX-3132? I ordered the Startech MPEXSATA22I which is similar to the Commell but it won't work on the DH77DF board that I have. I was hoping the commell will work. Thanks.
I did email StarTech and they said that MPEXSATA22I supports Command Queuing. They said that should make it compatible with the PMs. I haven't verified it since I can't get it to work.
Do you happen to know if I can expect to receive S.M.A.R.T. data from the drives connected to my new MPX-3132? I'm going to install S.M.A.R.T. monitoring software that keeps an eye on things a bit closer than the built in Motherboard & Windows stuff.
When the MPX-3132 is at RAID mode, it doesn't support S.M.A.R.T.
When the MPX-3132 is not at RAID mode, it support S.M.A.R.T.
I so yeah I see the 9115 is SATA III but I doubt I'll see speed differences between SATA II and SATA III since my PCI Express Card slot in my Shuttle says it only goes to 3Gbs anyway. The real choice is which one has SMART data, boots fast'ish, and which one is proven to be stable long term.
