I considered that but it will add extra power and tbh i would prefer to keep to the pch

and the fact i would have to find a 4x card as pcie 2.0 1x is isnt able to keep up with sata III after

pcie overheads

 

 

Does a 3.5" drive fit in the ODD area with the case on as i have no probem fitting the ssd to bay 1 if i can fit the 5th drive somewhere

You have to remember, this is a server. A speedy OS drive is not as important as it is on a Desktop computer. I'm not saying a speedy OS drive is of no benefit; it's just not as important as in other situations.

Do you have any add in cards in the system?

Remove the Adata SSD and see if the Marvell controller still shows up.

I believe the Marvell is the controller in the SSD.

I beg to differ a server by its very nature requires higher io than a desktop device

you are allready gimping io's a shedload by running in a vm

you dont need to make things even worse by running off a very poor marvel controller that is running off a 1x pcie lane

  1. i disagree. A server may well require higher I/O on data drives, but rarely do they need it on OS drives.

     

  2. I don't recall any mention of VMs. If you're planning to store VM files on the OS drive, that could make a big difference but, like I said, I don't recall VMs being mentioned.
