The one pictures has 12 internal ports and 4 external. Those are mini-sas connectors on the end of the card, which you connect to 4 sata drives each.
Nah. This version of the card would go for about $850. They have a 16 internal port that I could get for just under $1,000....which is what I think I'll do.

I paid less than $800 for my system, so yeah your RAID card cost more than my system...water cooling included... biggrin.gif

Dunno if/where I read that. I was asking in case you had heard anything similar.

Regardless, I'll never buy an OCZ SSD after all the issues they had with Vertex 2/3 when they were blaming customers for the firmware issues (that caused BSODs) and denying that anything was wrong.

The 1TB size of the Octane is nice...but it doesn't have as nice of specs as the Vertex 4. I'm also pretty sure you upped my budget by more than $10,000 with these changes. blushsmiley.gif
