Good luck, hope you find what you are after, I have one (not for sale though) fully populated with 4 x 2TB HDD, raid card, SSD on PCIe card and 1TB HDD on PCIe card. Just about to look into options for video card upgrades.


While they are an older machine they are still have grunty!

Yip, they are good units eh, I love mine but need another... I have some Samsung M951 blades and am just trying to find a card to run them on... Amfeltec Squid seems about the only card but seems quite pricey, then again you can get another set of M951's and that would really make it scream.. all the Canadian things seem to be pricey actually..


Does anyone know, who else makes a card to run the M2 blades on... I could just get a Lycomm DT120, or something like that but then wouldn't be able to run 2 blades raided for more speed I don't think.... probably just have to man up & get the Squid even though it seems costly vs everything else for the machine.


Heres a review on the card thats probably needed..




Guys I have a 09 Mac Pro 4.1 (flashed 5.1) with 980Ti, HighPoint USB3.0, Allegro-Pro PCIe USB 3.0 & 128GB RAM & Dual Xeon 3.3’s. Currently have 2 s Samsung 500GB SSD's on a Allegro Tempo Pro PCIe card but would ideally like a bit more.


  Was looking at trying a set (or maybe 2 sets) of Samsung SM951 blades to replace the PCIe SSD's, so of course am interested in your cards, can I get a quote for a x8 as well as a x16 Squid please - Harlan
