RAID Controller and Module Backplane Compatibility List

Select an Intel® RAID Controller or Intel® Integrated RAID Module below to navigate to a table of available backplane models for the selection. The tables indicate compatibility and provide compatibility notes.

Backplane table notes:
3Gb/s only
- The backplane itself is only capable of 3Gb/s throughput regardless of controller or hard disk drives used.
3Gb/s drives only - The backplane will support up to 3Gb/s drives only.
6Gb/s drives - The backplane will work with compatible 6Gb/s or 3Gb/s raid controllers, and will support the controller/HDD negotiated speed (1.5, 3 or 6Gb/s)
THOL - The Tested Hardware and Operating System List document.
