Basically I've almost filled up my LIAN LI PC-Q25B and am looking for more space and airflow for my unRAID server (mostly used for media and important files). I'm considering a Fractal Design Define XL R2 since it can hold up to 12 drives without much modification. Currently I'm running 5 3TB 7200RPM drives. Considering the possibility of running 12 drives, I'm planning to upgrade my PSU from a CX430 to maybe a SS-560KM (mostly to go fully modular). What I don't know is if I should also upgrade my ASUS C60M-I. I know the Fractal can hold a Mini-ITX board and with an expansion card I can have up to 14 sata ports. Am I missing something or will this board be just fine for ~12 drives?

EDIT: Anyone have any opinions on how a Rosewill RSV-L4411 will compare to the XL R2? Seems like an overall better value. 12 Hot Swap Bays and since the case is pretty large I can save some money and go for something non-modular like a Rosewill Capstone.
