I am not certain where you saw that, but it is incorrect, you can have however many 12gbps drives installed in a Virtual Disk and they will run at 12gbps. The only way that isn't the case is if a slower drive is used when configuring the Virtual Disk, which the controller would flag all the 12gbps drives as whatever the slowest drive speed is. ^CH

Well, technically yes. It should be possible to create it. For the H730P Mini 32 HDDs/SSDs are the max drive support.

Thanks for the answer. I read somewhere that if I put more then x amount of drive the speed will decreasse from 12G to 6G SAS. How many drive that I can have without I have this speed decrease ?

Thanks.
