Trying to finalize my setup & could use some help. I've got a Norco 4220 running whs 2011/mymovies with 2 os hhds in raid 1, two 750gb, 1 500gb, and 1 3tb in pool using Stablebit Drivepool. I recently got my hands on a chenbro rm21600

I was planning to just load it with 4 bd roms and a power supply, but now I'm thinking about also transferring the guts and os drives from the 4220 along with a sas controller, then adding a sas expander to the 4220 along with the 4 drives. The only hhds in the chenbro case would be the os drives. Any ideas?

That's a lot of extra power just to run the motherboard and System Drives. Are you running out of bays in your 4220? I mean my 4220 is all full but there is so much open space behind the fan boards I have been thinking of installing drives behind the fan board.

Not running out of room by a long shot, I've only got 4 hdds in the norco right now. Like I said I was originally planning on just using the chenbro case for the bd roms but got caught up thinking about possibilities...
