Thank you!

I have heard a lot about the Pico, but this is the first time I have seen a detailed account of deploying one.

Great write up Lennart. Now, what can we do with all that extra room?  ;)

Haha the height of the PSU is more than a 2.5" drive. 4 x 2.5" drives is possible :-)

The result, no power fan sound.

Did anybody got  after this idea with a more robust unit, like for not so green 150W version? 

The extra space for 2.5 is intriguing ..

 

 

Sorry to revive such an old tread !!

if it is possible to extend the number of hdd-drives (or ssd-drives) by putting yet 4 more 2,5" drives aloingside with another 4x 2.5"  within smd rev4  bracket....this way adding 8x   2.5" drives.....plus 4x   3,5" drives in the front.

 

to be more clear.....3 sets of 4 drives...in totaal 12 drives for only storage -:).....plus bootable os-driver on 5th sata-port (odd-port)

 

but the question is: is 160watt power supply enough for this setup? or how much supply do we need for above  setup?
