Yes, H700, H800 or H200 Controllers are required to use the 3TB drives on Dell servers.
>From what I understand 2TB drives should work fine with SAS 6/iR ctrl.

Found this :

http://www.delltechcenter.com/page/HDD+Support+for+2.5TB,+3TB+Drives+and+Beyond

But it doesn't say anything about the SAS 6/iR, so probably not I guess? But 2TB SAS drives look like they should be ok?
