I wasn't really sure where I could ask this question, but it seems there are a lot of knowledgeable people on this board, and this is probably a simple question for those of you who are used to server-class computing.
Ive recently won a lot of Compaq Enterprise class SCSI Ultra3 drives on the 'bay.. they are going to replace some HP drives that i've had in a RAID1 setup for my small business for 10 years.
The problem is the drives are the 80 pin version.
I cannot for the life of me find a RAID controller for 80 PIN SCSI that fits in a standard 32-bit PCI slot.
Do they even exist? every controller I find uses the PCI-X 64 bit slot.. which i've found is only on server-class motherboards.
I may be doomed to buying those 68pin to 80pin converter thingies, and using my ancient HP Netraid 1si card longer.. I was really hoping to upgrade the card to an ULTRA3 version for a little boost in bandwidth.
