HI all, My name is Darren, I'm a new Unraid server builder , I am trying to decide on a motherboard and have been offered this at a OK price - 


Supermicro X10DRH-C


I am not overly savvy with IT skills, but wondered if there was anything I should know before ordering, i.e - is unraid going to work on basically any E5 2000 V3 series CPU motherboard ? The one I am looking at has the following specs -


16 DIMMs12" x 13"

1 PCI-E 3.0 x16, 6 PCI-E 3.0 x8 slots

Intel® i350 Dual port GbE LAN

10 SATA3 (6Gbps) ports w/ Intel® C612 controller; RAID 0, 1, 5, 10

8 SAS3 (12Gbps) ports w/ Broadcom® 3108 controller (2GB cache); RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, 60

thanks very much for the reply. 

Yes I was wondering about the SAS card being LSI 3108. 

If I decided to get this board anyway as I have opportunity at a decent price, could I just use a PCI to SATA raid card and flash it ?

Or could this 3108 be flashed ? 

cheers again !

i don't know, a quick google shows that you can switch HBA mode in card BIOS, but i don't know if and how it works then..

you are using this card

Yes, i have some IBM 1015 - it needs cross-flashed to IT mode. but be careful with cards from china, it's a big chance you will get fake card..
