Adaptec RAID 71605 setup in HBA mode? Bottleneck with 16 drives?

Hey, I'm new to unraid and pc building in general. I picked up an Adaptec RAID 71605 card with 4 x mini SAS HD ports. I'm sitting in the Adaptec RAID Configuration Utility trying to work out if I should be in "HBA" or "Simple Volume" mode.

Options are:

Quote

RAID: expose RAW

RAID: hide RAW

HBA

Auto Volume

Simple Volume

 

With 4 x SATA ports to each mini SAS HD port, I'm looking at 16 drives. Is there going to be a bottleneck issue plugged into one PCI-3 slot?

 

Any other settings I should be on the lookout for while setting up the card?

 

Thanks!

I just got this card as well. I wanted to see what you ended up using HBA? Auto Volume?

 

Thank you for the insight.

Was a while ago, but HBA was my choice I believe. Good card, but it squeals when it gets too hot

I'm looking to get one of these and was wondering if you could expand a bit on the squealing :). The one I am looking at doesn't appear to have a fan, so not sure what would be doing the squealing!
