Ordering, Monday morning.
Supports 8 SATA III default, add a adapter this LSI card can handle 256 devices
Planning to run 9+ 3.5" hdd's in near future. I'll of course have to order another HDD bay and yet again reorganize my water pump.

I believe its the cheapest way to go is with used internal hdd's and looks cleaner then cluttering up shit with externals.
Once my internal case is filled, I'll consider externals but for now, used hdd's is the cheapest route, the way to go in my situation.
My "knock on wood" used hgst's have been doing great.
I already bricked the card last night.
Efi fw upgrade locked up n I shutdown, PC went into bootloop, the n there knew it was bricked. Pulled the card oc boots up.
Back to the vatec raid/pass through card
