    Hi All,

    I am looking at readjusting my storage server to try something new – FreeNAS. I currently have 2 nodes with 2 X 8TB HDD’s and 2 X Intel P3605 drives each using Supermicro X10SDV motherboards. I am considering combing these into a single server and was considering 4 X 8TB drives in RAIDZ2 and then buying a HighPoint SSD7120 NVMe RAID Controller to combine my 4 P3605 drives. My use case is very simple home based file server and my homelab VM farm.

    Anyone know whether the HighPoint SSD7120 will run in FreeNAS and advice on whether this is a good idea, terrible idea or somewhere in between.

    Thanks
