I am trying to find a decent SATA RAID5 controller (PCI preferably) that will support at least 4x1TB Drives, and can route the audible failure alarm to an external speaker. I am currently running on a Highpoint 1740 card and the Internal speaker just is not loud enough for this particular application. I am also open to any suggestions for 3rdy party hardware RAID monitoring software that would allow me to accomplish this as well.

Well, normally you would use an email alert via the software monitoring.

See if the 1740 supports this.
I am pretty sure the 2000 and 3000 models do.

Other options depend on how handy you are with a soldering iron....


I hope this helps !
