Default HighPoint RocketRAID 2340 Controller – Supporting up to 12000GB of storage

"Today we are going to take a close look at one of HighPoint’s very latest controllers and it’s one of the most impressive ones we’ve looked at so far, the RocketRAID 2340. Coming in at a little under $500 USD, it’s certainly not a cheap product but its feature list is neither short. Using special Mini-SAS connectors, it allows you to add up to an extra 16 SATA or SATA II hard drives to your system and run in a range of different RAID modes including 0, 1, 5, 10, 50 and JBOD. In fact, it has not just one but two controller chips on the card, which is powered by the PCI Express x8 slot for plenty of bandwidth throughput for extreme storage requirements.

Clearly it is designed more for small to medium-sized businesses with quite serious storage requirements. If you’ve got some cash to spend and are looking for a high-end controller card, which currently gives you the ability to store at least a whooping 12,000 gigabytes of data, using a total of 16 x 750GB drives (I just hope you have a monster-sized case...), you’ve come to the right place! Let’s get started and take a close look at the RocketRAID 2340 product from HPT and see if it is worth the asking price and just how it performs against other recent onboard motherboard controllers in RAID 0 and non-RAID environments."

I don't think you'll be able to use up all the available bandwith of 4x PCI Express with one of these controllers

you don't have to worry, none of these machines are powered on at the same time; the server runs @ 40-50W, not more; use one workstation at ~80W and a test system when doing benches.

in the end, power usage is below normal

spending €300 on a raid controller for home use is not a smart investment in my book
