I'm only planning on using eight drives in the server anyway, so dropping to a 4-bay cage doesn't hurt my plans, but I'd like to make sure I don't have a second set of cages to return if I can help it.
Yes I am pretty sure that those fit with no problem, After reading these updates I went ahead and emailed jim and being that they are insanely busy currently they obviosly cant look into this now, BUT in the future they will look into increasing tollerances POSSIBLY due to vendors going so far outside spec with their devices.
heres how its running currently, only the Torrent Seeder is up, im working on the other two also becuase they rquire some fan work before being able to complete. It is running fully on SSD currently as I have yet to transfer my main media server.
things have changed, im going to be running a pair of internal USB drives for booting FreeNAS as this board only has a single sata controller and I was unable to passthrough the intel drives for raid. I still have not decided tho..
But heck its running and after getting all that ubiquiti gear finally setup I figured I would get this tied in and start getting all the firewall and port rules setup.
