Added compatibility status for the SSDs in the first post. If you know that status please feel free to add it/update it.
Can you elaborate on that? I'm currently booting Sierra from a Raid 0 created with SoftRAID on a Apricorn Velocity Duo (800MB/s theoretical throughput, 660MB/s actual throughput). I have not updated to High Sierra because I didn't have time to research what APFS would do to my setup.Raid 0 is not bootable on modern macOS versions.
support depends on the chipset. those details seem to be missing.How about this 4 blade for $169 due to be released in October. https://store.mineority.io/sqrl/acorn-nest-x4/
I can't see a PLX switch on their board diagram.
From their webpage : " AcornNest X4 allows you to host four Acorn units in a PCIe 2.0/3.0 x16 or PCIe 3.0 x8 slot without any special motherboard requirements."
I found this in post #485 https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4391318.480
" The Nest X4 has a PCIe switch so it eliminates the need for the MB to support bifurcation to share the power of the acorns."
I wonder .. . .
Super Micro has a x16 PCIe switch card model AOC-SLG3-8E2P. I can't seem to find it anywhere though. They list it here: https://www.supermicro.com/products/nfo/storage_cards.cfm
WOW ! Thanks for that info !I have a spare supermicro x16 switch available. It was used once and successfully managed to electrically fry the x58 chipset on a 4,1 cpu tray.

Can you tell us more about that ( painful ) experience ? What do you think caused it ?
What else was in the PCIe slots when the 'FRY'occurred ?
good thread thus far.
Would it be possible to use the Highpoint 7101 ssd controller - put 4 512gb 970 evos in there. Set 1 up as boot drive, raid the the remaining & then Fusion them. Would that boot? & if yes would we see raid 0 speeds?
Just a thought/question. @tsialex
In case anyone is interested, I couldn't get this to work either re-seating or in the kyro adapter.Reseat the ssd in the m.2 adapter. If it doesn’t get any more stable, return it to the vendor you purchased it from
The lycon adapter probably is not your problem.
i can confirmed the "IO Crest IO-PCE2824-TM2" two blade card work with 4,1/5,1
