    What is the max storage supported for hard drives with motherboard?


    Hello,

    I was wondering how big can a hard drive be in terms of max support, eg 5TB, 10TB, 15TB?

    My motherboard is this one:
    ASUS P8Z68 DELUXE - motherboard - ATX - LGA1155 Socket - Z68 Series Specs - CNET

    As long as it's a GPT partitioned hard drive... you can't afford one too big.

    Your motherboard supports GPT partitioned drives. 9.4ZB = 10,335,409,301,094.4GB
    That's 10 trillion gigabytes.

    An additional point: as the P8Z68 motherboard has UEFI, you can boot from a GPT drive.

    That may be convenient.
