Thanks for the info.  Might just have to pick me up 3 of these.    Ok one last question.  Im was thinking of putting and ssd in one of the hard drive slots.  would be it ok to use a 3.5 to 2.5 kit?

Most of us have put the 2.5" SSD drive in the top bay where the ODD would go.  I would not waste a 3.5" bay for an SSD.

ah.  I forgot about that.  That would be better.  I need to read up some on it it.  4 drives with and ssd and 8gigs of ram would turn my server to a nice vm box/nas.

Yes it would.  Enjoy and also see the sale on the Toshiba drives.  I've had both and both performed very well, but I am now using WD Reds in my WHS box and Synology Diskstation.  I do have an older N40L with 2 Samsung and 2 Seagate 2TB's in there for a backup.

I think one day I will upgrade to an asustor box (im a fan of asus) myself but for now this is working our ok.  I may not put to much money into it other then just drives as I may be building a 8 core amd all in one vm box/storage box

Have you looked at something like this?  If you are going to put a drive up in the ODD bay might as well put several!

I use something similar to this and mirror my OS drives.

I use that device to hold my backup drives for the WHS (server and client) and mirror the OS.  Just be careful and remember it cannot hold the larger 11mm(?) height drives.
