You might be pushing it to get more then 8, with 2 TB drives now available, should be enough. You could use pci/pciE cards with 4 sata on them to get more.

I know that some of the Gigabyte and eVGA motherboards have 10 SATA ports on board.

Using Newegg's Powersearch, there are only 5 intel mobos that have 8 3gb/s sata ports.

There is only one AMD mobo that has 8 3gb/s, which is MSI 790FX-GD70 ATX AMD Motherboard.

The first question you should consider is why on earth would you need 20 HD's? Unless you are building a server for a company with 500+ employees this is extreme overkill.
