This is absolutely horrible advice. Any moderate horsepower PCIe x16
GPU card from nVidia or AMD is going to draw 4-10 times the current of
these SAS boards. Too much PCIe power draw isn't the issue here, unless
the mobo is possibly defective. I doubt this is the case. It's most
likely a firmware bug in the HBA or the system BIOS, or a driver bug in
2.6.32, or a combination of these. We should know after Ramon runs
through the task list I provided earlier.
