The card being PCIe x8 didn't need the full length of the PCIe x16 slot I had available, but as far as LSI 9211-4i SAS can tell that should not be a problem if the host and card are speaking to each other at all.
The motherboard LSI 9211-4i SAS two PCIe x16 slots, one of which is listed as "x4 performance". Since the card is obviously being detected at some level, I do not believe anything like the graphics-card-only x16 slots is at play here. To the 's internal ports I hooked up two to-4x breakout cables, connecting each to two HDDs leaving unused the other two plugs on each with no PMP or anything LSI 9211-4i SAS in between.
One of the two ports in the unlikely case it makes a difference, the one farther from the PCIe slot was slightly finicky, but the cable clicked into and locked in place without arguments once I slided it in at the right angle. I looked more closely around the area of that port but LSI 9211-4i SAS find no evidence of physical damage to the card.
The system was noticably noisier on boot compared to what it was before I installed these new drives, which leads me to believe that the card is, at the very least, supplying power and spinning up the drives. The drives subsequently spun down. I expected the card to make some utterances during the boot process, and was rather surprised to get nothing of LSI 9211-4i SAS sort no "Press Ctrl-C to start LSI Logic Configuration Utility" prompt.
The mpt2sas module was loaded automatically on boot, and seems to talk to the card just fine: IRQ 16 [ 1. Scatter LSI 9211-4i SAS Elements per IO [ 2.
I tried running udevadm trigger just in case there was something iffy with the boot sequence ordering, but that did not change anything and did not add anything at all to the system log LSI 9211-4i SAS. I am not inclined to believe that both of the brand new breakout cables are somehow broken. Honestly, I have no idea how much offloading this does.
Looks like it means business with the heatsink on it, but LSI 9211-4i SAS knows. The fact that it lacks RAID5 leads me to think that it probably doesn't do much logic.
Mainly just needed the extra ports, and didn't want some piece of garbage Silicon Image controller. Firmware and BIOS updating was effortless.
Can do it from within Windows or DOS. Pretty much the same as flashing a motherboard BIOS.

IT is for Initiator which I'm not LSI 9211-4i SAS sure what that's for. On the software side, it has this MegaRAID Storage Mananger application which allows you to mange anything you could possibly want really.
Create arrays, check their status, etc. A little more advanced than Intel Rapid Storage Technology of course, but still fairly simple to use. Windows was able to find LSI 9211-4i SAS install drivers for it automatically which is always good.
