TL;DR: Has anyone tried hammering all 8 SATA ports on an X570 board continuously? Is it stable or does funky shit happen?
We need a reliable, relatively high performance, but also high capacity NFS file server, as cheap as possible. I am currently considering an AMD 3600, 32GiB of ECC RAM and an Asrock X570 board with 8 SATA ports, an M.2 SSD for the OS and 8 SATA HDDs (8-10 TB each).
The software side would be some flavor of Ubuntu LTS and ZFS with LZ4 compression on but dedupe off, the disks would be mirrored pairwise.
As far as I can see, this looks good on paper, but I am a bit worried about hooking up 8 SATA devices to the X570 chipset, it seems like a good way of triggering some corner cases, as alsmot nobody these days uses all 8 SATA ports in a desktop, especially not in a single array…
