Hello RRicc3,

 

Thank you for joining the community

 

We recommend to use enterprise compliant HDDs on any server application

 

Consumer (normal) HDDs like the ones used on desktop computer are not recommended as per you might get unwanted issues when creating RAID arrays or high workload applications.

 

There are several different HDD technologies like SATA, SAS, NVMe, M.2, etc

This board comes with 12 SATA ports and 4 OCuLink port (for NVMe HDDs)

 

Besides that if you attach a TriMode PCIe RAID controller you will get support for SATA, SAS and NVMe drives using a compatible expander

 

This should answer your 2nd question about PCIe compatibility.

 

For more detailed information you want to check the Technical Product Specification document

 

Hope this helps
