    I’m ussing a 3ware 8006-2LP PCI64 SATA controller in my 320 and it’s running fine,
    but I can not use the corfiguration utility during starup, so I use it in default configuration.

    kind regards

      Thanks for sharing Jan. How many drives is the controller connected to? Are they striped for better performance? I’m assuming you can’t boot any attached drives from it as this is a known limitation of these systems.

        Hello Milton,

        I think this is the “budget” version of 3ware SATA controllers because it has only two ports.
        Anyway, I only use one port with a Samsung 500GB HDD. The device doesn’t appear in the hardware inventory and I can’t boot from it. I use a 72GB Fujitsu SCSI-HDD on the QLA1080 instead.
        Performance is approximately the same as with the Fujitsu-HDD, but major bargain is that I can use modern HDDs.
        I never tried to change setup parameters of the 3ware card in another system and then put it back into the 320. Perhaps I could get better performance by doing so.
