Lots of HDD's - Recommended Hardware?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I currently have a Synology system and an Xpenology system as well.  However, I"m maxed out for the amount of HDD's I can put in.

 

I'm looking for anyone who has 12+ HDDs and what MB and SATA cards they are using that work together good.  Ultimately looking for 16 HDD capacity!

 

Thanks in advance, Nick

I use a gigabyte b365m board and I have lsi 9211-8i in IT mode. Everything works OOB. 
that gives me 14hdds at the moment, but will eventually get another Lsi card, probably the 9xxx-4i version as it’s a pci 4x card which is all that’s left on my mobo.

I use an ASRock Z370M Pro4 motherboard (with 6 Sata Ports) and a LSI SAS 9211-8i (IT) host bus adapter (8 ports), which gives me 14 drives in total as well. You could go for two LSI SAS 9211-8i hba's in IT mode or search for another hba.

Here's an extreme case you might want to look at :)
