Best firmware for 7170A?

Hi Folks,

I’m a newbie to this forum. I’ve searched the forums first, but still can’t find what I’m looking for. I’m posting here because my question is about the Optiarc 7170A.

I have a 2008 Mac Pro. I find my 7170A to be slow, noisy and won’t read RAM discs. I would like to find out what firmware would be best to flash with, do I need a “bit rate” firmware update, and how to flash using a Mac.

I downloaded binflash for Mac with a commandline tutorial but it doesn’t work. I’d appreciate any help.
