Does Intel Modular Server System MFSYS25 support 400GB SAS?

I have Microsoft Essential Business Server 2008 (EBS2008) deployed on an Intel Modular Server System MFSYS25 using 14x 146GB SAS drives (135.97GB usable space per drive). Currently free space is running a bit lean and I would like to replace a couple of 146GB drives with 400GB drives for bulk file storage; my question is whether large 2.5" SAS drives are now supported by the MFSYS25? Any info will be appreciated.

Highly recommend you select hard drives from http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/mfs5520vi/sb/CS-030301.htm Tested hardware and operating system list. Yes there are 450GB, 500GB and 600GB 2.5" SAS drives in the list.
