I'm building my unraid server with the follow configuration, my objective is Zero Noise and lowest possible power consumption with plex trasconding capabilities:

SanDisk SDCZ33-016G-G35, Memoria con USB 2.0, 16GB, (Unraid SO)
(total cost about 750 eur, total power consumption in idle status less than 15w ....I hope)
This single computer board has 2 sata ports on boards. Can I mix the HDDs and connect 5 of them on the HBA board and the other 2 on the onboard sata connectors?
There are any problem in terms of performance/stability?
Once I have the array configured, can I swap the connector of 1 HDD with another (....of course when the system is in power off status)?
Thanks in advance
