I’m trying to find out if I could use the Odyssey to build a NAS. However I have a few requirements that seem challenging:
- I’d prefer to use 2x 3.5" HDDs (they are cheaper than 2.5"). However there is only one SATA data port. I’ve read about the PCIe to SATA adapter. It it still unclear to me how they should be wired and if the power supplied will be enough?
- I’d prefer to add another 2 devices to mirror the root partition, I was going with 2 USB dongles but there is only one USB type A port. Any suggestion how this could be done?
- I don’t think the standard case is going to fit 3.5" disks, is the board compatible with any other cases?
Thanks for any suggestions!
