Looking at adding a second storage module and drives to my existing BC-S. I plan to use the additional storage for an 8 core HS-21 so I can virtualize a few servers that are currently discrete boxes. I can't seem to find specs on the 3267 IBM BladeCenter SAS Connectivity Module I have installed (P/N 39Y9192). Googled around and couldn't find much beyond environmental specs. I am pretty sure that it support two 6-Disk storage modules but I was more concerned about what disks I could stuff into those modules. I'd like to put some 300GB 15K SAS drives in the new storage module but there seems to be different throughputs available (300Mbps and 600Mbps) so I am not sure what the Connectivity Module supports (maybe it doesn't matter).

Any suggestions on where I can find the specs? Or just some advice on which drives/specs I should look for? I may want to change the storage on the i side as well.
