Cable For IBM M1015 Card In Norco 4224?
« on: July 16, 2012, 02:21:41 pm »
I'm building a file storage box for home. Using a Norco 4224 case, Supermicro MBD-X9SCM-F-O board, and 3 IBM M1015 RAID cards. I need to order 6 SAS cables with the SFF8087 connector on each end, but don't know how long.

Is .5M (19") long enough, or do I need more. Won't have the case for about a week, would like to order cables now to speed things up. Sorry for very mundane question.


Thanks
Ed

Hi the Doctor,
I have a Chenbro case that has the same length and I think 0.5 m is to short. 0.6 could be enough. I have at least one cable that is 0.5 m, it is possible but the cable is very stretched.

Thanks, I hope you're wrong! I asked the person I bought the case from, specifically mentioning the card I was going to use. He contacted Norco, they said their cable C-SFF8087-D would fit. It is 500mm long. I ordered 6, hope they fit OK. I wouldn't be surprised if it very tight like yours, and will certainly complain.

Brahim, would you please quit with these damn captchas! I understand trying to keep the spambots out at registration, but do you really need to abuse registered users with such nonsense?

Hi,
The captcha are only for your five first post I think. Then you aren't bothered.
If I need a bigger case I will buy the short case from xcase should help with the cable length.
