Hi Luca, thanks.
Update on the choice of the PCIe card for the second slot. I tested the Calidigit RAID card and didn't work (although it worked when Magma was connected to a Mac Pro), so I installed a SATA/eSATA card instead. This worked flawlessly and I'm going out to Akihabara now to pick up RAIDON Pro Drive that provides RAID1 or RAID0 for Mac Pro with two 2.5 inch drives, but I'm going to put this in to Magma and connect it to the internal SATA of the PCIe card. I have to be careful with the operation temperature of this drive though.
Question - how loud is the fan noise from the PCI enclosure?
Ratoc SATA/eSATA card worked and I got a hardware raid1/0 box for internal mounting (made to fit in the floppy drive bay of PC) and installed that in the magma and worked well (not anything superb comparing to using RAID card but actually be able to connect any eSATA drives is very convenient for location copying). Now I have to figure out the cost.
