I have a DL140 G3 and according to HP's documentation the max capacity SATA drive I can put on the HP Embedded SATA RAID Controller is 2x750GB. If I put a 2TB drive in here will something terrible happen?

probably because when the DL140 G3 came out, 750GB was the largest drive they had tested and certified. – Matt Nov 27 '13 at 22:18
Did you try it? Did it work for you? Please provide an answer. – Nowaker Jan 5 '14 at 3:26

For those who want the answer. Mine run with a 1.5Tb in driveA and a 2Tb in driveB. Both sata disks are working very well.

If it says it only supports up to 750 GB, the worst thing that can happen is probably it not recognizing the drive.

Yeah... Guess I should just test it out. Thanks Lucas. – Greg Jun 26 '12 at 19:59
