Hi Is the limit of 10 TB absolute, or is it theoretically possible to use larger disks, such as 16 or 18 TB?

Hi,The SSD capacity is no limit, but to avoid insufficient power supply, you need to provide better power.

Will there eventually become a case available for the X880? I think you are doing a great job at making beautiful cases so I really hope that there will be one for this product as well. Even if it's just a 3D model dat would be awesome.

Keep up the good work!

Hello,Thanks for your support, we are also considering and collecting more users' needs, whether to make a shell for x880. But it is still unknown. If it is possible, we will publish it on the wiki immediately.

Best regards
