Hi and a very warm welcome to ocaholic Rainwolf!
Well, it's going to be a huge RAID array. There is going to be a Samsung event here in Switzerland, and they've been asking us to come up with something special. I gave it some thought and told them, we would like to break some world records.
As a controller we will use an Areca ARC-1882ix-24 PCIe 3.0 x8. With this controller we even have some headroom to attach even more drive, although we might reach PCIe bandwidth limitaions, when raiding 16 drives.
Still it might be a lot of fun and we will definitely keep you guys posted. Ah yes, we're also about to build a nice benchtable for the event to display the stuff in a decent way
After you have done this i would take one of them
AsRock Z68 Extreme 7 / Intel Core i5 2500K @ 4.3 GHz / Corsair H80 / 16 GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 2133 MHz / GTX 770 / OCZ RevoDrive 3 240GB / Samsung PM 840 Evo 256GB / Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 850W
