Some quick questions:
1) Are these SiI3112 controllers any good?
They are horrible.
They are very cheap to buy -- and are overpriced after
you add in all the aggravation they provide.
Don't waste your time on them. Buy a real SATA
controller. (disclaimer: I am only commenting on
their SATA controllers)
I have the option of using a HighPoint HPT372 instead
but was planning to use that elsewhere.
Unfortunately I don't know enough to comment on other
alternatives. I dumped my SiI3112 SATA controller
and bought a real controller as made by Promise, but
there are probably a number of other good options.
Well, the HPT controller is not what I'd call *real* RAID
either but it's lying around so I'll give it a try.
If you want a somewhat reasonably priced "real" raid controller, the
LSI MegaRaid SATA-4 150 (or some name like that) is around $225 or so
and works pretty well
