HP ProLiant DL380e Gen8

Hi All


So far for the last few years I have been running a hp n54l without any issues. However as my needs has grown the N54L is starting to show its age. So its time to move on. One of my main issues is as I have an extra 4 drives connected to the Esata is speed. My write speed sucks and the cpu at times tops out.


So the plan is below and my reasoning behind it. But if anyone has any better ideas or a reason it will not work please let me know.


So going to pick up a HP DL380e with space for 14 drives and a hp H220 as this can it seems be flashed to IT mode. It also does have a HP Smart Array B120i SATA Controller on board but I have not read much into that yet. 

The reason for going for a HP card is I have read a few places that with other cards the server likes to run the fans at 100%. 


The only thing I have noticed is it says the H220 has a 42tb limit Im guessing this is if you use the card as intended or it was just the drives available at the time?
