Through damn right stupidity I bent the pins on a CPU in a machine have rendering it pretty useless. In an attempt to reclaim any useful (re-sellable) parts I have removed the Adaptec SCSI controller, however I'm having trouble identifying it and I don't easily have to hand another box to pop it in. It is labelled as adaptec 3000s it has 4 LVD connectors two internal and two external, the processor is labelled AIC-7899G. It was controlling a RAID array. It has space for two memory slots (one of them being filled). It has a further PCI 64 Does anyone know which part it is?

Adaptec's KB answers this question:

Adaptec 3000S is just the label of the PCB. This PCB is used with two different controllers:

  • Adaptec SCSI RAID 3200S (two Ultra160 SCSI channels, two internal and two external connectors)
  • Adaptec SCSI RAID 3400S (four Ultra160 SCSI channels, two internal and four external connectors)

So you're looking for the Adaptec SCSI RAID 3200S
