I think the real problem with using drives of that size is throughput.

You can add in an upgrade controller card to the PCI slot, but I think
the bandwidth on the PCI bus is limited.

So it's kind of a risk to put that much data into the qube if you want
it to be online quickly after an fsck or something.
