    Nice results. It would be interesting to compare to old school SW raid solution if it is still available for W2012e through drive management snap-in.

    Joe, I pretty much built a system just like described. I flashed the BIOS via Diehard and installed windows 8 on an SSD drive on port 5, and have a 3.0 TB drive in port 4 in the icy dock. Both show up in the BIOS. I changed the SouthBridge settings as per described and for some reason the 4 3.0 TB Seagate drives in the internal drive bays, don't show up in the BIOS or under manage, drives in Windows. Any thoughts on what I might be missing? Thanks!

    Testing Storage Spaces myself, the write speed seemed to change a lot over time (I was using Refs, on a 2 way mirror). I copied about 200GB of test data from another NTFS drive. For 10 minutes or so it copied at a steady 9-10MB/sec – a bit slow I thought. I came back half an hour later and it was running at a steady 25Mb/sec.
