No problem, and yes, I think that should work.  One thing to keep in
mind, though, is that if the internals of the enclosure simply split
the multilane SAS cable into 4 connectors without an expander, and you
use SATA drives, the controller will use SATA mode, which as I
understand it runs at a lower signalling voltage, and won't work over
long cables, so get a short cable (1 meter, shorter if you can find
one).  It looks like all of the ones mentioned so far use this method,
though it would be good to know if Carson populated his with SATA
drives.


SATA drives using 1m cables from an LSI SAS9201-16e
