The HighPoint RocketRAID 2760
Here we get our first look at the 2760 fully assembled. There are six SFF-8087 ports for connecting the controller directly to drives or to backplanes inside your server.
The back of the card is relatively uneventful other than a few surface mount components.
As you might imagine, all of those controller chips create some significant heat. You will need a powerful cooling system to keep the 2760 happy. Why HPT went with a passive cooling system is beyond me, since the price will entice power users to give the 2760 a go and most systems outside of the server realm are not up to the task of keeping a true enterprise class controller like this one cool.
A big thank you goes to Crucial for supplying the 24 RealSSD C300 drives needed to make this test possible.
