10 drive MicroServer Gen10

Recommended Posts

I need to pack away the 2.5" drives, but I do have 10 drives running in the MS Gen10. I have Windows 10 Pro running on a M.2 Crucial SATA SSD and a Toshiba M.2 NVMe PCIe mounted on the top PCIe card in the picture below:

The bottom card is a Marvell based 4 port SATA PCIe x1 card, that is running four 2.5" drives. When buying cards for a MS Gen10 be sure they are not taller than the bracket.

Here are the cards I used:

Still working on it. I could stack two on a side bracket, but I want to leave that open for a 15mm 2.5" drive. Now that the 2TB Seagates come in 7mm 2.5", I think I can fit four in the ODD bay with two stacks of two drives. Cabling is always an issue.20181121_220125.jpg20181121_220154.jpg
