    Comments about HighPoint RocketRAID 1740 4-Channel PCI SATA II RAID Controller:

    When you buy these controllers their is a motherboard compatibility list that they don't tell you about until you buy it. Also the phone number for their tech support has a recording stating "they no longer provide phone support, instead email them." I emailed them and never did get a response so I sent it back. I will never buy a Highpoint product again.
