Hey guys my current home media server is giving me some issues, i think the onboard raid controller is giving out on my arock motherboard so im looking for a raid card.

what do you guys think about the Adaptec 5805?

i need something that supports 8 drives larger than 4tb.

im currently running arch linux with zfs but considering going to windows server.

any input is greatly appreciated :attn:

*edit*
This server is used stream media for my home and for friends via kodi/plex and also downloading/unpacking via sab, sonnar ect

My life experience tells me that software RAID is way better than cheap hardware RAID card.

ZFS is a great FS by the way and I have very good experience with it both on FreeNAS(FreeBSD) and with ZFS on Linux project.

If you tends to go Windows way you can use Windows software raid too
