Yup, definitely get a case with support for 4-8 3.5" HDDs.

You can mount additional HDDs in the expansion slots.


These are 2.5" HDDs here but you can fit a 3.5" turned sideways:

I hear Newegg is suppose to start selling them in the US. The only other place to get them right now is NCIX but the shipping is a killer.

wonder why this silver one only supports ATX mobo and not mATX. exact same case

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112219
If it supports ATX, then it also supports mATX, DTX and ITX. All of the ATX screw mounts are in the same place, you just don't use them all with the smaller boards...

ill wait for the PC-V354B to come back in stock first. will then probably use the $25 off $50 newegg code they sent out (email attached).

Those boards should be fine but they only have 4 sata ports.
Your going to be buying controller cards real quick.

I'd look for one with 6. Also ditch the gpu. Total waste just be sure to get a board with onboard.

Those Samsung drives are great. I just bought 3 at Microcenter for 69 each for an 11 TB server I built last week. Just be sure to do the fw update.

these are the only boards i found with 6 sata ports

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...nd&PageSize=20

needs to be 775 as well.


---

seems kind of hard to find one for 775, 6 sata and decent price...

would rather get a 4 port first then just get a controller card, syba ones on newegg seem to be good.
