Intel(R) ESB2 SATA RAID Controller and 3TB HDD

Hello!

Does Intel(R) ESB2 SATA RAID Controller fully support 3TB hard drives?

We have:

1) Intel Matrix Storage RAID - Intel(R) ESB2 SATA RAID ControllerNumber of Serial ATA ports: 6RAID Option ROM Version: 5.6.2.1002Driver Version: 8.9.0.1023

2) Intel Rapid Storage Technology

Intel RAID controller: Intel(R) ESB2 SATA RAID Controller

Number of SATA ports: 6

RAID option ROM version: 5.6.4.1002

Driver version: 10.1.0.1008

Can we attach 3TB HDD to these controllers? Can we use whole capacity of such HDD ?

It can also depend on the motherboard. Which board are you using this on?

I read the following and tried to install latest drivers from intel download f6flpy-x64 version 12....

Seagate says that it requires version version 10 plus Driver although it won't allow me to update from 9.6.0.1014 3/3/2010 to the latest version which is 12.... Please help so i know if I should return the seagate 3 gigs and give up on this MB....

All,

You should check with your motherboard manufacturer for the most accurate compatibility information.
