Okay you server geeks out there.

What would be a good raid card for this mobo?
The main purpose of this build is NAS. Using the WD 4TB Red drives.

Yes I know it's not a Raid card.

Little that I had known its not compatible with FreeNas.
BUT ubuntu will see it.

I currently got 7 WD Red 4TB drives on this setup.
I am courious if ya got any pointers for me on softRaid or RaidZ for me.

I think it is better to use raid 7 of 8 for 4TB Red drives as it is the one and only best and suitable drive for building NAS i think so.
