I have 4x4TB hgst drives that get semi toasty in my haf x.
I'm looking at the neo kit you and the guy above you mentioned looks good going to research it more about tightening timings a bit. I'm trying to understand pbo/auto oc on ryzen but afaik it's just set and go unlike intel.
Any reason you are going for asus crosshair VIII hero - 8 sata ports?
I also have a lot of HDD´s 5 in fact and with prices for 16 TB like they are and 18-20 TB being even higher i think i would rather buy more rather than bigger
I have 2x 12 TB 2x 14 TB and a 16 TB so only 61,7 TB combined
I actually ordered the P600S but i found that my PSU and GPU are so long they block off HDD cages so the P600S can only hold up to 10 if you have a small GPU and PSU and i dont so the P600S was useless for my use case so i canceled the P600S and made an order for the Luxe 2 as that was the only other option
The downside to that is none of my SATA cables can reach so i had to order 60 cm cables from CableMod and since they are so slow they are the last thing that will show up and the whole build will probably be delayed because of that so maybe i will buy a cheap SATA cable to have at least one drive i can use
As for the motherboard only Asus and Asrock has boards with 8 SATA ports Gigabyte and MSI only has 6 SATA ports so their boards are useless
I picked the Asus Crosshair VIII Hero because i would rather buy a good board with stuff i dont need rather than buying a cheaper board and need something later the board does not have and i think the Hero looks better than the Strix boards
I almost bought the new black Noctua NH-D15 but its too expensive and its overkill and since there is no black NH-U14S i went with the NH-U12S instead i wont be overclocking so its not a problem
And last you can buy both CL18 and CL16 versions of G Skill kits i ordered the CL16 since its almost the same price as the CL18
Edit: ordered some el-cheapo looking Delock SATA cables i can use if the CableMod SATA dont show up in time for the build
Also forgot to say that the Luxe 2 comes with no fans and only 4 HDD cages so you have to spend money on fans and cages if you need more than 4 HDD cages
I bought 4 Phanteks PH-140MP fans as i have two already i will re-use and 4 more HDD cages
