Adaptec ASR-7805 SAS2 HBA - $24.74 OBO + shipping

Adaptec ASR-7805 SAS2 HBA

These work in both “IT” (passthrough) and RAID mode.
Normally, these are more expensive, but due to CHIA, COVID, etc… this is the cheapest I’ve seen a 2 port HBA, whether LSI or Adaptec.

I’m using this and enjoy the Ctrl-A to get to the card’s bios. Had to strap a 40mm fan to it like in the master-post to make sure I don’t get in trouble with the heat fairies.

I run it along with an LSI card on TrueNAS

Noctua 40mm fan with regular screws that fit the threads of the heat sink

Guess the sellers have wised up because all my offers in the $20’s have been declined. Still a good deal at ~$38, but definitely a price increase over what was originally posted.

Thanks.

Hello…possibly for HW RAID is turns out great. I had a 71605H (the HBA form), and review having a few issues with it when you have in excess of 12 drives associated. at the point when I was looking for a fix, seems like numerous others had a similar issue. I later discovered I had a flaky backplane, so it may have been the backplane, yet I lost trust in the 71605H and moved to LSI based HBA.

The ASA-71605H is a different model controller altogether (and an older one), experiences you’ve had with it are not relevant to this thread.
