    Global Shipping automatically includes tax + a fee (2,8% for this auction per my calculation).

    Ok, the fee associated with importing something of this cost would be slightly more. But good to know :)

    Maybe there will be another round if it its not working out.
    I have no clue regarding total number but seems plenty.

    Edit: Although, 170 sold already and 10 left atm...

    That depends on your backplane - or direct attached?

    Yeah, I did some googling last night, and most of the ones I found didnt seem to work with SAS3 drives. I wonder if I need to find a SFF-8643 to 4x SFF-8680 instead to be sure.. They seem very expensive tho, 60-70$ each..

    That looks like mini SAS HD.

    In that case: SFF-8643 to 4x SFF-8482.

    They start around $12 on eBay from China.

    The ones in the $15 range have SATA power pass through.

    Ouch, never heard of that.
    Have not used direct attached cables for regular operations in a while though, just for debugging and there the aforementioned 2 port cables I got are ok (and still have molex power).
    Sound like you'll have to do trial and error unless somebody beat you to it and shares...

    Will do, once disks and cables arrives in a few weeks. How do you stresstest these harddrives to know that they are working as they should? Im used to WD Greens, so 12Gbps SAS3 drives is something new for me:)

    OK, will check it out :) I think I read somewhere that SMART data aint available in the same way as regular SATA drives. True or false?
