Hi, I am building a new server using a Corsair 800D tower box and need to connect 8 x
Seagate 3TB 3.5 inch 7200RPM 64MB Cache SATA3 Hard Drive to a MSI X79A-GD65 (8D) Motherboard (corei7, LGA2011, Intel x79 ATX Raid, Gigabit, Lan. The processor I will be using will be an Intel i7 230EE. The board will have the full 128gig of memory.
My question is, will the raid that is built into the mother board be able to handle the 8 hard drives as is, or will I have to buy some other components or hardware to make them work ok.
Oh, I will be running windows7 enterprise and centOS as the operating systems.
