    Backplane cabeling with raid controllers


      Hey experts!


      I was searching through many support pages and documents, but didn´t find was i was looking for. Whe are building our server using SC5650 and S3420GPLX with SRCSASBB8I. Because of wishing maximum perfomance we are using none expander backplanes so we should have more performance than using expander backplanes. Is this idea correct (ok, the used harddisks must be fast enough so realize a performace difference, but is the idea itself correct?


      As we read in the manuals, there must be made one more connection with none expander backplanes than with expanded. But how? Between board and backlpane? Or raid controller and backplane? SES or SGPIO? I´m helpless!



      Searching greetings from sunny germany
