I'll be live-tooting a bit while @uint8_t replaces the lithium cell on the RAID-card battery module :D
@uint8_t the new cell (dark grey one on the second image) is being discharged with a power resistor to 3,8V to match the current cell voltage.
@ln the processor of the M5015 raid card was running so hot, this was probably the reason the backup battery was cooked
I kept cooling it with a 40 watt SanAce fan while we migrated the data away from it
apparently this is an issue lots of people complained about online
so we got rid of the RAID card and migrated to linux mdraid
performance hit is not perceivable
managing it just got so much easier! see attached photo of the LSI raid card's BIOS
