Main Computer (projected build)

This one will be a big one, I would like it too have at least 12 HDD's, the case Thermaltake x-9 and has 4 USB 3.0 in the front panel and I would like an extra 2 making a total of 6 x USB 3.0 in the front panel.

 

I have been unable to find a Motherboard capable of supporting the 3 USB 3.0 connections and the 12 sata connections (all on board).

 

Any thoughts on these issues?

 

Thanks

12 SATA connectors motherboard is very hard (impossible?) to find. Much easier to find 8*SATA motherboard + one or two PCI Express cards to add more SATA ports.

Maximum budget?

 

What country are you from? This is needed to get the correct currency.

 

What are the purposes of this computer?

Guys Thanks for the tips, I'm from Oz and expect to pay about 2.5k I intend to use this computer for everything other than surfing the net, including playing and making movies, playing and making music, cad type software as well as the normal software (spreadsheets, writing etc), the main reason I mention a big mobo is because I want to keep the o/s and software and data/backup as seperate as I can from each other plus none mainstream software.

 

Once again Guys thanks.
