I have a dell disk array that is a few years old as well as a pci-x scsi card. I would like to put pci-x scsi card in my dell r805. The dell r805 only has 4 pci express slots and no pci-x slots. I have searched all over google and have not found out the answer. Will the pci-x card work in the pci express slot in my r805?


No it won't work, they're physically and electrically incompatible. Let us know what model of disk array you have and we'll try to find you something that will work.

  • I bought an LSI pci express card. It works wonderfully. Thank you for your help! – eodchop Feb 8 '10 at 0:12

No it will not, PCI-X and PCI-E are very different hardware devices. Definitely not compatible.
