I don't think it should have been closed. It may be a narrow fit, but surely there's someone who knows a bit of this information.

comment Building large RAM Computing Server with a limited budget (Bioinformatics)
I buy 128GB RAM HP ProLiant servers on the used and off-lease market for less than $2000‌​. Surely you can search a bit harder.

The cables won't matter. This shelf is a 3Gbps SAS shelf/controllers and backplane, so speeds will downshift to that when connected to a 6Gbps HBA. If you put SATA disks in the shelf, you may end up with 1.5Gbps link speeds on the disks. No idea if this enclosure will work as a JBOD. You haven't given details on your end goal.

Okay, that's not enough info. What are you seeking from this setup? Nothing in this setup is 12Gbps SAS. The unit you're connecting to is an expansion shelf meant to be connected to an HP SAN, not as a JBOD to an HBA. Why are you doing this?
