After a lot of browsing and reading between Ivy Bridge mobos I've decided to go with the Gigabyte P8H77-M PRO. However, one of my ultimate goals is to fit 5 HDDs into this build, something like four regular HDDs of 3TB each and one SSD unit for the OS. It will be basically a humongous data depository of sorts. Is it possible to accomplish this with the mobo in question? If so, how should I connect the drives, exactly, considering the available ports?

By the way, feel free to suggest other mobos that could perform the same role in this configuration. Cheaper ones, if possible...

You can use up to 6 drives without "Redundant" or set up RAID http://www.pcworld.com/article/132877/RAID.html
