Hello to all,
I would like your opinion on what to buy from servers. Model that I found are

DELL R720 with perc H710i 12xLFF ( I think it will not work with this big drives but if flashed to IT mode then there should be no problems)

HP DL380e gen8 or HP DL380p gen8 12xLFF (I found these models with B140i and P420i but I am not so sure if they will work with these sizes of drives)

HP DL380 gen9 12xLFF (I found one with B140i but I am not so sure if they will work with these sizes of drives, also in spec of B140i it supports only up to 10 drives)

If anyone has experience with similar situations I would be grateful for advice.
CPU and RAM are not important for this server.
I am trying to find as much as possible affordable model for this purpose.

Thank you all
