Finally Finished!!! :wired::wired::wired:
Here's the updated pics...
The Final Product!
Here you can see the final Sata sleeving and the new SSD PCI hotswap slot mounts for the 2x OCZ Vertex 2 120GB in RAID 0 for boot OS. They are removable from the back panel. I ran out of room for SSD's so I also mounted the 4bay hotswap SSD bay below which has 4x Sandisk extreme 120GB in RAID 0 for games. Yes I have everything backed up and an automated daily incremental backup goes to external RAID arrays.. which Ill get to at the end.
Full side on.

The Full Enchilada!!!!
External RAID arrays... connected via e-SATA
On the left 8x WD 3TB Green drives in 2 lots of 4 drive RAID 10 sets. (5.46TB usable each RAID volume - these are hardware RAID giving about 200MB's)
On the right the slightly older 4bay RAID now with 4x WD 1TB blacks in RAID 0 for some game storage. Giving about 250MB's.
All data from SSD's and the WD blacks is backed up to one of the RAID 10 volumes and all my critical data is again backed up to the second RAID 10 volume including some data from the other RAID 10 volume.
Thats All Folks...!!!!
