Is the Adaptec 6805 RAID controller supported?

I'm looking at building a somewhat sizable unraid box which looks like:

 

NORCO CHASSIS - RPC-4020

CORSAIR HX850W 850w POWER SUPPLY

SUPERMICRO MOTHERBOARD C2SEA

INTEL CELERON E3400 2.6G CPU

4GB RAM

ADAPTEC 6805 SATA III RAID CONTROLLER KIT

10 x 2TB 7200 RPM, SATA 6G, 64MB CACHE SEAGATE BARRACUDA XT HARD DRIVE

(I will add a SAS expander and another 12 drives in the near future)

 

 

I haven't seen any discussion on the Adaptec 6805 RAID controller.  Has anyone successfully used this card and/or know if it's supported?

 

 

Thanks for the help.

The 6805 is a very pricy controller.  Overkill for unRAID.  Unless you have one, not sure why you'd consider it.  I do not think I've ever heard of anyone here using one with unRAID.

 

I'd recommend finding an M1015 on eBay.  It is a good 8 port PCIe x8 SAS/SATA controller.  And then add a SASLP (8 port PICe x4 card) and max our your array.
