So everything finished, however I got some teaser news that unraid is about to allow zfs capability on the cache pool in the new 6.11 version, so since I'd need to rebuild the cache anyway I'm going to wait to move over my VM and docker containers to the new drives until that occurs.
lookin good so far, while it technically should be 3k read per drive I'm not really complaining
i suspect thats probably between the m.2 adapter or the bifurcation i'm using on the board, or possibly the OS limiting.
I am getting better than advertised write at least
The most impressive thing...
So I actually ended up getting the 7300 Pro for about the same price as the max but I get better performance at a similar endurance (4.2 vs 4.5 pbw with over double the space (800gb vs 1.92TB). I lowballed him for $280/ea for two thinking he'd counter but he accepted ~ tbd on the condition...
Thats a bit more than I wanted to pay, but for 10x the endurance and 3x the storage size isnt a bad tradeoff for 250$, I paid 100$ each for my SAS SSD that i have 4 of to get the same 800gb (on top of needing an enclosure, that takes up valuable hdd space and makes noise).
Nice, thanks for the suggestion but I'm seeing the chart as only 800 TBW now (they might have changed specs, corsair's mp510 revision b is almost 1/2 the endurance of it's predecessor)
I did find the seagate firepro 510 to be fairly comparable to the MP510, however they are almost double the...
The h310 is the most common and generally readily available model.
As for airflow, personally I just picked up a cheap fan pcie mount.

Then strapped a 120-140mm fan on it.
These are usually about 130$ plus tax/ship on top of a 2-4 week drop ship time purchased new.
From the looks of it they are new'ish in box for most of them and discounted heavily if you buy multiples.
I have a bunch of these in my antec twelve hundred and...
I personally took off the cover/fan to plug everything in, it was a pain in the ass to get SAS cables in there.
I just used a SAS 8643 to 4 SATA/SAS break out cable with no side band:
You could easily...
