I think this board should work ok with the 5.2 loader without any issues, the 6.0 loader is still being refined but either way will make a good nfs box

 

If you want to setup 12 drives, why not get a couple of cheap 4 port pci x1 add on cards (plus the 4 on board) and save on an expensive controller that you won't be using the features of?

 

Also why not add an extra NIC?

Thanks for your reply

 

Decided to install DSM6 into a VM and test with spotweb, sonarr, couchpotato and a torrent client.

I already have the adaptec controller and yes there will be extra nic's available

 

Cheers!
