LSI SAS 2208 RAID Controller Information and Listing

One of the most popular server RAID controller chips out there is the LSI SAS 2208. The LSI SAS 2208 is a 6.0gbs SAS 2 or SATA III based controller that features eight ports and native PCIe 2.0 connectivity. In the forums we have maintained a LSI Controller Mapping between LSI controllers and their OEM counterparts. This post will be updated with both information on the LSI SAS 2208 based RAID controllers as well as the different OEM models commonly found in the marketplace.

EVGA SR-X Classified First Look

Today we take a look at what the EVGA SR-X Classified is all about. The EVGA SR-X Classified is a successor to EVGA’s popular SR-2 motherboard. Brands usually associated with single socket mainstream motherboards (e.g. the Intel LGA 1155 for Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge and the AMD Socket AM3+ platform) are now coming out with high-end dual socket motherboards. One thing that has changed for these motherboard makers with the new Intel Xeon Sandy Bridge-EP Xeon family is the inability to get a meaningful overclock from the new Intel Xeon CPUs.  Can EVGA put up a good fight against the professionals like Supermicro and Tyan who are workstation and server board specialists?
