[SOLVED] Can Version 5 support 6TB drives?

Recommended Posts

I did do a search of the board before asking but I couldn't find anything useful. I'm running out of space on my server and wondering if I can upgrade to 6 TB drives.


Version 5.0 Beta 14

14 total drives including cache


CPU: AMD Sempron 145 Sargas

MB: Asrock 880 GM-LE AM3 AMD




I heard someone talking about flashing the raid card with upgraded firmware to accommodate larger drives but I'm not sure how to do that.

To answer your question about upgrading versions...I built this thing in 2011 and it has been running 24/7 (almost) without incident since then so I never felt the need to mess with it. I did have one issue a while back while changing PSU's and adding extra drives. I was down for about a week while troubleshooting an issue and it turned out to be a faulty ICY DOCK 4 into 3 RAID Cage.


So there are no issues with using 6TB drives on the Supermicro HBA then?


I do understand that I need to upgrade the Parity drive first.
