Hi. How many sas drives can Dell Perc H310 take? 

 

Seeing a lot of somewhat bargain SAS 6 Gbps drives around. Planning to grab some of price is right. 

 

I also flashed mine to IT mode. Do I have to worry about HGST drives or Seagate drives either from. Dell, Supermicro? 

 

Lastly, what cable do I need to use?

 

Currently using mini sas to 4 sata cable, 2 of them.

Without an expander it can use 8 max.

Unraid has no special drive requirements, SAS drives need to be using 512 or 4k sectors, some if bough used can have unusual sector sizes, but they can be reformatted.
