For the case, I don’t think I will ever go above 12 hard drives but I know that 8 wouldn’t be enough space in the long run, though it would probably work fine for a few years which is why I have the silverstone on there. I like the hot swap option though I will admit that I don’t use it much on the machine I already have. My major concern is whether the ram I have will be compatible with the Mobo or if I need to get something like ECC PC3-12800E 1600MHz 4GB mentioned in the guide?
Thanks for the quick response! I’ll have to get some different memory then. Would there be any difference between the Sata PCI-e 2.0 vs the SAS9211-8i? Does one have better longevity.speeds then the other or can I just grab one and be fine?
Sweet thanks! And that new case can hold 10 drives natively but any ideas on the temps when fully loaded? My place can get pretty hot during the summer, even with a/c on and it doesn’t look like there is much room on this thing for more fans.
