B120i vs Storage Spaces

If you use the B120i RAID the hard drives will not go into standby but the fan controller works perfectly keeping the case fan at low speed(and noise).


If using 4 x SATA drives with Storage Spaces the drives can power down but the built-in iLO4 fan control doesn't detect the hard drives temperatures so defaults to a higher fan speed that some find too noisy.


Performance wise I'd think not much in it.


Best solution for me was to use 4 individual SATA configured drive using Stablebit DriveSpace for pooling/data duplication.

What if you still use the B120i to present your individual disks as RAID 0 volumes then group these together for parity using storage spaces? Would this get around the fan speed issue or am I overlooking something obviously wrong with this idea?
