12 bay Dl380e G8 LFF - What RAID card do I need?

So we picked up a DL380e G8 12bay LFF, the 3.5" size, but there's no RAID card in it. There's only one port on the motherboard, for the onboard RAID, but if I want to use all 12 bays, I need to put a RAID card in there. Can someone please tell me what model I need, to be able to to 12 2TB drives in a RAID-5? Thanks!

Looking over the quickspecs and service guide, it appears the 12 LFF system has an expander backplane and one P420 Smart Array can support all 12 drives

Thanks. I thought it would work, but I was unsure about the number of drives supported.

For giggles, I had a P410 in a drawer and installed it, and it seems to see the drives and work as well.
