I have an areca 16 port controller. I have been trying to figure out what to do to expand storage and I think I finally figured out a better solution.

I thought a norco 4224. For 16 of the spots the areca and then build a smaller flexraid 5 with the remaining 8 spots possibly leaving a spot for the c: I have 4 sata ports on my server motherboard. I was thinking of this 4 port card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16816132017

Do I need any other cables? I have 16 of the breakout cables and expanders from my areca. I just dont know how the backplane works. The first comment on newegg is complaining they had to buy $130 worth of cables. I would like to have this all here by Friday and try to set this thing up.

Am I missing anything else I would need?
