NetApp DS4243 with LSI SAS9200-16e

Having just got a NetApp DS4243 Diskshelf with 2 x iom3 and 4 x PSU's cheap complete with a LSI SAS9200-16e I am now wondering what cable do I need to connect the two?

 

Also there seems to be a lack of cooling on the DS3243, do the drives get hot?

SFF-8088 to whatever NetApp uses, I believe it's QSFP

Thanks, just need one cable to address all 24 drives, or one to each iom3?

One cable only, the other IOM3 is for multipath/redundancy, only SAS drives with dual port support that and even with those you can only use one cable since Unraid doesn't support multipath.

Out of curiosity, now that I have fired the diskshelf up, are they always thus noisy?
