    Yes, you can use one port or even two ports giving a breakout of 5 and 4 ports respectively. Not so sure about the analogy but the main point is there is always gonna be a performance drop using an expander in this manner, which is exacerbated by the storage medium. With 1TB HDDs, I wouldn't...

    Xeon Socket 2011-3 and 2066 will give you 40 and 48 lanes respectively. Your issue will be which MBs give you the PCIe lane count, the PCIe configuration you desire and other desirables. At the moment, Xeon V3 CPUs are the best bang for buck. However, for gaming, your gonna get better...

    FreeNAS/TrueNAS Core air-gap backup?

    I create a new pool, copy via a smb share using terra/x/robo copy and store away hdd disks. Hot-swap drives are key so that you can offline a pool to create the new pool.

    Quiet, office friendly NVME NAS chassis?

    Next question....What drive size(s) and how big of a pool are you looking to build? Generally, the bigger the drive size of each nvme u.2 drive -> more power required ->the more heat generated -> more air flow required -> faster fans required -> greater noise generated. Even a 4U with some...
