LSI 9400-16i a good choice?

Hello!
I just bought a new Windows PC and would like to get rid of my wild mix of USB drives and WD Reds and put them all in one case.
The case (Define 7 XL) can contain up to 18 drives, so I’m looking for a way to connect them, using an additional controller next to the onboard SATA connectors.

I stumbled over the LSI 9400-16i… which I could get for 350€.
The idea was to buy a more modern card that is still maintained by Broadcom.
But maybe that’s wrong thinking…

Unfortunately I have zero experience with SAS cards, yet.

So it’s a Windows PC.
The motherboard comes with the following PCie slots:
Intel® 12th Gen Processors*
1 x PCIe 5.0/4.0/3.0 x16 slot (for the graphics card)

Intel® Z690 Chipset**
1 x PCIe 4.0/3.0 x16 slot (supports x4 mode)
2 x PCIe 3.0 x16 slots (support x4 mode)
1 x PCIe 3.0 x1 slot

So I would be only able to run it with x4 and not with x8… but I guess that’s not a problem.
Also I would rather not want to sacrifice more than one PCIe slot.

What I don’t know:
– Can I expect the LSI 9400-16i to run well with Windows (11)?
– Will Windows’ hibernate still work fine with a server SAS card?
– How much will the boot time increase? I read that 9200 cards would take several minutes unless they are set to “OS only” mode. Can I expect the same from newer cards?
– Will the discs go to sleep mode after a few minutes like they do an an ordinary SATA controller?
– Is the card choice any good at all?

What I want:
Just JBOD.
Only HDDs will be connected – and most of the time only one will be running.

Sorry for the probably dumb questions – but I really don’t know what to expect.
I hope some of you guys are so kind and sacrifice some time for me to share your wisdom!
Thx! 🙂

  1. Unless you really need the native NVMe support of the 9400, I’d say a 9305 series is probably a better choice. Certainly should be a cheaper one unless you’ve got a fell-off-the-back-of-a-truck deal on the one you’re looking at.

    Neither of them however are going to be great in a desktop case; both are designed for servers with strong front-to-rear airflow, as you can see by looking at their heatsinks. HBAs have a habit of running really, really (really, really) hot if you don’t give them the airflow they need.

    Bandwidth-wise, it’s only a PCIe 3.x card anyway, so any of your three electrically x4 slots will be fine. Should get you 3940MB/s (985MB/s ×4) which is bound to be more than enough unless you’re filling it with SSDs.

    Can’t help you with Windows though, sorry.
