Dell PowerEdge R620 with Perc H310 Raid Controller

Does anyone know of a replacement for the H310 Raid Controller in a R620 server since Dell upgrades for this server only support 6gps and the R620 will not support the H730 capable of 12 GPS. We replaced our drives recently with much larger drives and went with 12 GPS so if possible, we would like to take full advantage of that in our HyperV environment. Otherwise it seems for now our only is to upgrade to the H710P 6 GPS

We are running Raid 10 and wishing to increase performance of one HyperV SQL Server.

Thanks for any advice in advance.

More for the iops. The SQL server is running a poorly written program  in my opinion so I am trying to get as much boost as possible and I have heard of performance issue with HyperV and the H310. I just wanted to  be sure there were not any other options out there. Thanks :-)

As mentioned, install the H710 with non-volatile cache option and import the existing RAID array(s).

IIRC, H3xx = software/chipset based RAID thus the term "entry-level" RAID.
