MAx hard drive size for Zimablade based on power

Curious what the max size hard drive one could use with the ZimaBlade? Limiting factor is the power supply
Think the Zimablade could handle 2 14tb EXOS drives?
Based on the specs for the drives they should be in the wattage range, but curious if anyone has tried larger drives…

no one? No one has played with the power output to get an idea? Currently running two 14GB Exos drives with Truenas Scale installed on the Zimablade… but currently running the drives from an external PSU…
Would love to make it self contained… but don’t want to damage a drive

For long-term operation, it is recommended to use an external PSU
