Started a 2nd server from purchases on Black Friday:
Case: Fractal Design Arc Midi, 8 HDD bays, 2x 5.25in external
MB: intel DZ68BC 4x SATA3 4x SATA2
8GB Crucial DDR3
Highpoint RR2320 8x SATA2
PSU: Seasonic SS-350ET
2x Rosewill 140mm PWM fans
That Extreme Series intel MB was an opportunistic purchase and has 4x SATA3+4x SATA2 ports. Adding a Highpoint RR2320 card gives this server 16 ports capability. I will add a 6x 2.5in in a single 5.25in bay housing giving this box 14 HDD capability, 8x 3.5in+6x 2.5in. The OS SSD will just be wedged somewhere in the case. A multi-card reader occupies the 2nd 5.25in slot.
The Seasonic PSU cables are too short so 24pin-24pin, 4pin 12V cable extensions were added. Fractal Design fan control was too primitive. Rear and top fans were replaced with Rosewill 140mm PWM fans. Original fans were moved to the front and connected to a thermistor equipped fan controller.
