Dang... combining all the storage I have:
640GB (boot)+500GB(secondary)+500GB(in closet)+80GB(older IDE)+250GB (in closet)+2TB(external backup drive), I have about 4TB.
There is about 4TB total in the media center alone(added a couple drives - testing the HW raid controller)... The main PC is running about another 2.2TB, the testing machine has several drives, totaling a litter over 1TB, and the laptops are running 500GB each I think.
2.2TB? What, a 2TB (or 2 1TBs) and a 200GB? Or does this have to do with the MBR limits of the bios? I recall I had 3 HDs in here, the 640GB WD, and 2 500GB Samsungs (pulled these out of a NAS with a dead PCB, thanks a lot Lacie, that unit was known for having PCB failures!), and then removed one because I got the external drive, and the WD was getting up to 43C in the summer. With 2 drives there, it's more like 37C for the WD and 32C for the samsung (in the winter, subtract 4-5C). Unfortunately, this case only supports 3 HDs in total, and no fan in front of them (however, there is a 80mm fan below
the cage). I notice some newer antec cases that are about this size allow 6 HDs, and unlike mine that HD space goes down to the bottom of the case (and you can put 2 fans in front, on one case I looked at they were 120mm).
