Only need to plug in ONE of the power connectors on the back of Norco hotswaps <:

I suggest naming your disks by their physical location and/or serial number to make diagnostic much easier.

Wait, really? Why are there two plugs then?

My original plan was to do just that (serial number naming) then I forgot about it and did planets, remembered half way through, and now debating if I want to get masking tape and put the planet names on each drive or just rename them all.

How noisy is it. I note you used the default Intel i5 CPU fan. Thanks

Practically silent for all intents and purposes.  I could probably make it a bit quieter by getting a aftermarket cooler and replacing the other 230mm fans with quieter ones, but to be honest it's pretty freaking silent as it is.  If it was going on a table next to my head I would be able to hear it, but pretty much anywhere else you can't.
