Hi all,
is it all right to open a new thread to see how many of you succesfully run FreeNAS on the HP ML10 v2 server?

What I'm trying to do is building a cheap freenas box (with 8GB RAM) to use for replication of my main freenas machine. So definitely investigating if the RAID controller works when set as AHCI. I heard stories that the settings make the fan spin at full speed and also I just found out that it "supports up to 6.0Gb/s SATA. (SATA port 0/1 support 6Gb/s and SATA port 2/3 support 3Gb/s)". It's stated here on the Specs sheet: HPE ProLiant ML10 v2 Server (QuickSpecs/c04567801.pdf)
Is this spec it going to affect performace much if 4 drives are used?
And please where in case the 5th and 6th are going to be conncected? Is it an extra HBA needed?

Many thanks for suggestions!
