    6, if you're using just the SATA ports.
    7, if you include an m.2 drive.

    https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/PRIME-X470-PRO/specifications/
    AMD X470 chipset :
    1 x M.2 Socket 3, with M Key, type 2242/2260/2280 storage devices support (SATA & PCIE 3.0 x 2 mode)*3
    6 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s)
  2. If you add additional sata controllers, you can use even more drives than available number of sata/M.2 ports on your motherboard.

    Case supports 15x 3.5" drives + 3x 2.5" drives.
  3. are all 6 drives going to have there own letters or are you going to raid 4 of the hard drives???
