  1. I've had good results with this in my N54L: EnLabs PCIEU3ACS20 PCI-e to 4 Ports USB 3.1 GEN 1 (5Gbps) https://www.newegg.com/en-labs-model-pcieu3acs20/p/17Z-00FJ-00002?Item=9SIACJF7CU4192
  2. One thing to consider, do you hibernate the drives? 6.2.3 isn't known to be reliable with hibernation, which is why I've kept my archive box on 6.1.7 but am using 6.2.3 for production data.
  3. Your hardware is definitely capable and stable with both 6.1.7/1.02b and 6.2.3/1.03b versions/loaders as ds3615xs. See the excellent table linked below to help you make your choice.

  5. Any direction you go should be fine. Since this will be your "archive" machine, you may find it better to go with a completely fresh install, then if you like restore your previously saved configuration backup with usernames, networking, etc. I've had both 6.1.7 and 6.2.3 on my machines, both are great. One is the previous generation HP N40L, which works straight out of the install using 1.02b/1.03b respectively. If you want the hard drives to hibernate, that may be a reason to stay with 6.1.7 [unless there is new information about hibernation stability in 6.2.3]. If
