Adaptec RAID 5805Z PCI-E x8 SATA/SAS RAID Controller - The Adaptec 5805Z

The Adaptec 5805Z




Here we get our first look at the Adaptec 5805Z. The controller has a small black heatsink, but requires a decent amount of airflow to keep the 1.2 GHz dual core cool. The dual SFF-8088 connections are located at the back of the card.




On the bottom of the card we get a glimpse of some of the cache chips and see the PCIe 8x connection.




The 5805Z uses a daughter board and this is where the Zero-Maintenance Cache Protection is plugged into the card.




Here we see the cable installed.




The only down side I was able to find with the Zero-Maintenance Cache Protection is that it does not install directly on the board. Adaptec does include a couple of zip ties so you can put the black box elsewhere and the extra long cable is also a nice touch.




Adaptec includes a nice manual, driver disk and Storage Manager Software with the 5805Z.
