    Turns out my 5.25" Bay is blocked internally so throwing this idea out the window :(

    Now looking for any external enclosure/shelf and corresponding HBA/RAID card to connect it.

    Any specifics on what you want the RAID card to support?

    6Gbps plus would prefer something that wouldn't be limited by HDD capacity.

    Updated OP - turns out I can't fit a 5.25" bay so will need to go external.
