Opened — never used. I'm currently using an Areca card with 2 4tb WD Red drives in a Raid 0 array for my parity drive in my main system, with 8 other drives in pass-thru mode on the card.


Unraid sees the raid array as a single 8tb drive I did this due to Areca ARC-1680 Series RAID HBA speed of the 8tb drives I'm using, which are the Seagate Archive drives. The system currently has 35tb in it, but I have 2 more 8tb drives to add when I move it all over to my new box Cisco UCS C M2 with a Dell Areca ARC-1680 Series RAID HBA raid array, just waiting on my drive trays to show up.

I'm moving to a different card on the new system since I need external ports for the MD LSIEbut the Areca has worked well for me for the last 2 years or so.

Just wish it had better support in Unraid. I'm still a huge fan of the Areca cards mainly for their network port and network management functionality.

The disadvantage of running R6 is you must use similar size drives and they must all keep spinning. I didn't intend on using any of the raid functionality and didn't for quite a while.


Once the 8tb Archive drives came out, and I bought a few, I wanted a faster alternative to using one for parity, and had 2 WD Red 4tb's here. I could just buy a faster 8tb drive now, but at the time, the Archives were the only game in town and the 8tb non-archive drives are still somewhat pricey.

The nice thing about Unraid is it'll take the drives either way, passed through, or in an array. And there is a way for all of us to use unRAID.

Jun 28, 6. I understand that this mode was king of useless for you because of that. Jun 28, 7. Jun 27, Some tools and drivers are available from the vendor. Some linux tools are available on a CD included with the controller. Notably this driver uses the kernel scsi subsystem rather than implementing its own block device. This Areca ARC-1680 Series RAID HBA does not contain the RAID status. Tested with Linux 3.

The green PCB cards are the newer hardware revision. I've bought green PCB cards from ebay and they came with firmware v1. I've bought a card from Amazon and it came with v1. Shipping firmware will depend how old your source's inventory is. Click thumbnail to see a side-by-side of both cards.
