So I decided to build an sffpc/unraid build with spare parts I had around.
It’s going to have an mATX b550m motherboard, and a ryzen 3600.
Now the tricky part is that I figured it would be pretty cool to have an extremely small case right next to my router, and use a PCI external SAS card to a hidden box with all the hard drives in it as opposed as having a medium/large case.
Now it sounds silly and it probably is. But I thought it could be a cool project and I have a 300w bronze power supply laying around.
The idea is that the server would have its own 300w psu, and the box with drives would have yet another 300w psu powering the drives.
Can I have a different power supply power my hard drives?
How much can you split a single SATA power cable? Unfortunately, this PSU has only 2 SATA power outlets. Could I safely split each one into four?
