Help me customize my server

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I built a server for use as home server with many drives , little i thought my data grow large and now i am in trouble i need more hard drives to be added to this system

Here is little details :

Antec Dark Fleet DF-85 ATX Full Tower Gaming Computer Case
Kingston Technology HyperX 16 GB Kit (4x4 GB Modules) 16 Quad Channel Kit 1600 (PC3 12800) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM KHX1600C9D3K4/16GX
ASUS M5A97 Evo - AM3+ - 970 - SATA 6Gbps and USB 3.0 - ATX AMD ATX DDR3 2133 Motherboards
Sata Card 1:
Rosewill RC-209-EX PCI 2.3, 32bit, 33/66Mhz SATA Controller Card
sata card 2:
Rosewill RC-212 VIA PCI SATA 1.5G / IDE ATA 133 Controller Card / Supports Raid 0, 1, 0+1, JBOD, non-RAID mode
SanDisk Extreme SDSSDX-120G-G25 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

I have second 120 or 128 GB SSD as spare just in case something happen anything to sanDisk Extreme

amd phenom ii x4 945
Power Supply:
RAIDMAX RX-850AE 850W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
Hard drives
21 TB in Total between 3TB and 2 TB drives and one 4TB drive
Hot Swap Module for DF-85 4 of them or mybe 6 not very sure need to open the box to see
Antec Easy Swap USM External Hard Drive Dock + SSD bracket using 1 at this moment and i have 2 spare not in use in original box

Issue: I need to add more drives to my system as it is getting full + want to be able to run hardware raid between 2 SSD + want to run FlexRAID (Data Protection + Storage Pooling) with Raid F with parity drive that comes with FlexRAID

I am going to run my server 24/7 and i will be using FlexRAID + CrushPlan Cloud unlimated backup to save my data in case thing goes wrong

Oh and note: on my case at this moment i am completely out of space , power, and hard drive space and no sata port available

I want to be able to add Hot-swap SATA HDD Trays

add custom hot swap something like SUPERMICRO CSE-M35T-1B 3 x 5.25" to 5 x 3.5" Hot-swap SATA HDD Trays

it does not have to be this but whatever that can fit into my pc case and allow me to have more drives

i need hardware guru to be able to help me to do this as it will save me a lot of time and money , please note my pc is shutdown at this moment for last 3 weeks and i been searching and reading and this is the best option i can come out with rest of the solutions are very expansive the cheapest is around 550 for hardware + software and hard drive
