250X32=8 terabytes!!!!!!!!....wtf are you gonna put on those bad boys? You can't even have that many can you? what letter would go to the drive # 27?
Turning it into a home grown file server - Found a great Lian-Li case that will hold 18 of these drives. (http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...factory=BROWSE
I'll host two off of the mobo and the remaining 16 from 4 PCI IDE controllers.
Now for the interesting part - has this ever been done before??? I'm hoping Windows can combine the storage into a large RAID 5 array which should give me around 3 TB of active storage space. I'm guessing 20W per drive, which gives me 360W just in hard drives. Any suggestions on cooling? Anything else I need to be aware of?
