I am building a 22 camera NVR system that needs 8tb of storage. My plan is to use an R710 with a H700 controller. I want to have a 6 disk 3.5 backplane.
2x 1TB drives in Raid 1 for the OS/NVR Software
4x 4tb  WD4000FYYZ drives in raid 10 for the NVR storage.

I'm not seeing any concrete evidence or any examples of people running these drives with that controller. All I've seen is people confirming the H700 can handle larger than 3tb drives.

I was just wondering if someone has any experience with these drives in any server with any raid controller.

Dell has not validated these drives on the R710/H700, but Western Digital has validated/tested/designed them to work:
