I’m interested in building a media nas on Rpi5, and also interested in this kit.
Based on what I’ve been reading, it looks like the layout of the Rpi5 was kept similar to the Rpi4 to maximize compatibility with older peripherals, but I’m not sure about software compatibility. Would the quad sata hat work on the new platform?
Also, I’m interested in using three 5TB, 15mm, 2.5 in HDD with this housing. I’m looking at using four of these right angle adapters to offset the two outer drives to make this work.
I’m ready to drill a few new mounting holes on the drive brackets so everything sits right and mod the case a little for the I/O, but I noticed the outer case shrinks in on the sides so the I/O ports reach the Rpi board. Are those edges tight to the drives, or is there at least 7-10mm of space on each inner side to work with?
Edit: I realized the second half probably sounds confusing so, here’s a visUal of what I mean for mounting the drives.

I’d be buying and connecting 90 degree adapters to mount the 15mm drives like this.
